Julian S. Millstein ADR Services

References and Testimonials


"Julian Millstein was a skillful mediator in a commercial litigation involving one of our clients. He was quickly up to speed on the relevant issues, and patiently presided over several contentious mediation sessions. Both sides came to trust and have great confidence in him. He helped the parties explore creative business solutions, which ultimately were not adopted, but in the process clarified positions and enabled settlement. The matter was, within a short time after Mr. Millstein"s involvement, amicably resolved."

Jeffrey R. Coleman
Partner, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, New York

My company was involved in a long-standing cross-border contract dispute, and my attorney suggested we use Julian Millstein to mediate. His involvement was extremely valuable. By the time we got to mediation, things were very emotional and I thought we were surely headed for long and costly litigation. But through his calm manner, careful listening and perseverance, Mr. Millstein was able to get us all back on track toward a resolution. We would not have reached a settlement without his work.

"It was in the mid nineties that I first worked with Julian, completing a series of very large and complex outsourcing deals during the 'heyday' era. Julian became my first choice for external counsel in every instance; although he knows the contract and case law around outsourcing as well any of his contemporaries, what truly sets him apart is his skill at the table.... he reads people; he understands the overlay of emotion and ego in situations where the stakes are high, and although he is tough and intellectually rigorous, he has an innate ability to demonstrate that he sees an issue from both sides.... nobody I know is better at resolving complex issues in a negotiation and preserving momentum and goodwill."

Former Managing Partner, Global Sales, AT&T Solutions

"As one who spent years across the table from Julian negotiating large telecom outsourcings (he on behalf of the provider; me for the customer) I am happy to testify to his wisdom and tenacity. But beyond that, I can vouch for his abundant energy, patience and good will; unrivalled knowledge of IT law; and (most importantly) uncanny ability to see his adversary's point of view and use that to craft workable solutions to complex problems.  There is no one I would rather use as an arbitrator or mediator in a difficult IT dispute."
