As author since 2009 of Arbitration Commentaries (http://arbblog.lexmarc.us), Marc Goldstein (www.lexmarc.us) is an essayist on developments in the law and practice of international arbitration in North America for an international readership. While engaged mainly as an arbitrator since 2006, he has continued to act as an advocate in international arbitrations and related judicial proceedings. He frequently sits in, and accepts advocacy engagements in, cases involving complex financial products and transactions. An IMI-certified mediator, he has conducted more than 60 mediations. He has represented investors in arbitrations against states and state-owned entities, and has acted for US and foreign clients in dozens of arbitrations and litigations in sectors as diverse as pharmaceuticals, real estate, construction, franchising, securities, banking, and sports/entertainment, and on legal subject matters ranging from public international law to US antitrust and securities law. He is a member of the American Law Institute and the International Arbitration Clubs in New York and London. He is a fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. His name is included in the rosters of the AAA (ICDR and large/complex cases); CPR distinguished panels of neutrals (international, accounting, banking–finance), and the International Arbitration Centres of Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. Mr Goldstein graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia Law School, was admitted to the New York Bar in 1980 and led the international arbitration practices in two large New York firms between 1999 and 2007. He is a visiting lecturer in the professional development programme at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. His most recent journal article is "Living (or not) with the Partisan Arbitrator: Are There Limits to Deliberations Secrecy?", which will be published in Arbitration International.
WWL says: Marc Goldstein is lauded by peers as far afield as China, Canada, the UAE and Portugal for his outstanding capability as an arbitrator.
