New York Law Journal Publishes Second Installment of Three-Part Series on Strategies to Reduce Litigation Costs

The New York Law Journal published the article, "Controlling Litigation Costs: Automatic Trial Stays Pending Appeal of a Summary Judgment Denial," by partners Russell Yankwitt and Dina Hamerman in the October 4, 2019, issue of the newspaper.
