Marc Fleisher specializes in helping clients achieve divorce settlements without court intervention, primarily as a divorce mediator and Collaborative divorce practitioner. He also negotiates for clients outside of the Collaborative process.
Marc began his career as a litigation associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison. He went to the elite Career Criminal bureau at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, and then joined the faculty at Brooklyn Law School before becoming a divorce and family mediator in 1994.
Marc co-founded the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals in 1999, which introduced Collaborative Practice to the Greater New York area. He was a charter member of its board and is currently, along with Barry Berkman, a member of its two-person Advisory Committee.
Marc taught the first course in Collaborative Practice at a New York City law school, and has trained divorce mediators since 1996 as an adjunct professor at the Ackerman Institute for the Family and Brooklyn Law School. He has also taught divorce mediation at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and as a Visiting Professor at the Cardozo School of Law.
