Partner William Escobar co-authored the chapter on “Health Care Institution Litigation” in the seminal treatise, Commercial Litigation in New York State Court. The chapter addresses the interplay between rules of procedure and substantive law, strategic consideration in defending a false claims action under New York Law, key statutory schemes and causes of actions, outlines strategies for representation of plaintiff and defendant, and considers ramifications and pitfalls of various actions. Partner Robert Haig is the Editor-in-Chief of the treatise.
The treatise has been widely recognized as a unique and invaluable resource and has become the definitive reference work in this area of law. This eight-volume treatise covers every aspect of a commercial case in New York State courts. It also covers the substantive law most commonly encountered in commercial cases in those courts.
