comment Comparable and Comparator contract with regards to null
(Such an equation a.compareTo(b) == -b.compareTo(a) is not necessarily correct for every type. The return value of compareTo() needs not to represent the difference of any fields of two objects. Although this is a way in which compareTo() is programmed very often, it's not a good idea! - A calculated difference could overflow and then result in a wrong positive/negative value. (Better literally return -1, 0 or 1 from compareTo() only. - It's not so sneak, but correct.))

Thank you Chris! Your solution has an important benefit over mine: it is null-aware.
