In a recent video, Burg Simpson shareholder David P. Hersh introduces various methods of legal dispute resolution. These processes fall into two major categories:

  1. Litigation and arbitration fall into the adjudicative process, in which a judge, jury, or arbitrator determines the outcome of the matter.
  2. Mediation and negotiation fall into the consensual processes in which the parties attempt to reach an agreement.

Dave Hersh is the Co-Practice Group Leader of Burg Simpson's Commercial Litigation Department. He is a civil trial lawyer with the skill, passion, and experience to win your case. When your business or health is on the line, Dave is the advocate you want in your corner. For more than 35 years he has focused his practice on civil trial work. Dave thrives on handling complex civil cases, presenting them simply, effectively, and persuasively to a jury.   He has tried well over 145 civil jury trials to verdict and has “tried” scores of civil arbitrations and bench trials to their conclusion, with an outstanding “win” record in all venues.
