NEW YORK — Partner Michael A. Fernandez and Justice Rolando T. Acosta, the former Presiding Justice of the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department, co-authored an article for the New York Law Journal titled “Certified Questions from the Appellate Division as a Tool for Bettering the Rule of Law.”

In the article, they discuss the need to reform the certification of questions from the New York Appellate Division to the Court of Appeals and their specific proposals for a solution, which they believe will benefit litigants and strengthen the rule of law.

Michael’s practice is focused on complex commercial litigation, international arbitration, and regulatory compliance issues. Fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, he has experience representing foreign and domestic companies and individuals involved in arbitrations, litigations, and with investigations in the U.S., as well as parties to international commercial and investment treaty arbitrations conducted under the major international rules including UNCITRAL, ICSID, ICC, and ICDR.
