Special Master / Magistrate Services

UWWM members regularly serve as court appointed special masters and magistrates in pre-trial discovery and motion practice proceedings where they issue preliminary rulings, report and make recommendations to the court, and generally support ongoing litigation. In other court supervised functions, our practitioners help administer class action settlements and conduct other post trial administrative programs. Finally, with the agreement of the parties as to scope and protocol, UWWM members frequently design and provide private adjudicative services to resolve specifically defined commercial disputes.
