Abigail Reardon is a New York litigator who has experience in complex commercial litigation, arbitration and mediation going back thirty years. She began in our New York office in 1985, was elected partner in 1990 and returned to the firm in 2006 after an absence during which time she raised three children.
All of my work involves disputes arising from complicated documentation implemented over a long period of time. Most recently, the disputes have arisen in the energy field or in financial services, but I have also worked extensively in the real estate field and with large manufacturers.
While my primary focus is New York-based litigation, I also have broad experience in domestic and international arbitration and in litigations not sited in New York City.
Now more than ever, the time and expense of litigation or arbitration means that all clients need one thing from their litigation counsel at the outset of a dispute and regularly as it progresses—a detailed but realistic analysis of how complicated deal documents apply to a fact situation and a common sense way forward toward prompt resolution.
