Biographical Notes:
design element

Lawrence W. Pollack, Esq. serves as arbitrator, mediator, Special Master, and Discovery Master of complex business/commercial matters. Mr. Pollack specializes in negotiating the resolution of difficult disputes with significant claims among multiple parties with divergent interests. He has thirty years of experience addressing sophisticated issues in all aspects of domestic and international insurance and reinsurance, including those relative to claims, subrogation, policy language, regulation, and business strategy. As observed in Legal 500, Mr. Pollack has been described both by claimants and insurers as “personable and thoroughly commercial, perfect for insurance litigation.”

Mr. Pollack joined JAMS in 2010 after twenty-eight years in private practice, at Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP and its predecessor firms, LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae LLP, and LeBoeuf Lamb Leiby & MacRae. Mr. Pollack’s practice often required travel to Europe for work on cases venued in the U.S. involving insurers based overseas. In 1999, Mr. Pollack began a 10-year service as Co-Chairman of the firm’s Litigation Department. Mr. Pollack became a member of the firm’s Executive Committee in 2003 and served on that committee until his retirement.
