Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Marc Goldstein began serving as an international arbitrator in 2006 in parallel to his ongoing career as an advocate in international arbitrations (more than 150 commercial cases and several investor-state disputes). In 2007, he established his own dispute resolution practice, having previsouly been the leader to the international arbitration practices at two large international law firms in New York. He now devotes his practice to service as an independent arbitrator and mediator, and regularly sits under the rules of the ICC, ICDR, AAA and LCIA. In recent years he has been particularly active in cases in the pharmaceutical and finance sectors. He has been recognised as a leading arbitration practitioner in the USA by prominent peer-review publications each year since he established his independent practice. A regular contributor to scholarly publications in the field — most recently “A Glance Into History for the Emergency Arbitrator” in Volume 40 of the Fordham International Law Journal — Mr Goldstein is also the author and creator of the widely-read Arbitration Commentaries ( blog, where he has published more than 200 essays and comments on the law and practice of international arbitration. He is a member of the American Law Institute, a fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators since 2009, and a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators since 1993.

Mr Goldstein was an editor of the Law Review at the University of Virginia Law School from which he graduated in 1980 and is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (1976). He maintains or recently served in leadership roles in the New York branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, the international section of the American Bar Association, and the dispute resolution section of the New York State Bar, and is an active member of the New York International Arbitration Club and New York International Arbitration Center. Mr Goldstein serves as a mediator of domestic and international disputes (more than 70 cases), and obtained certification by the International Mediation Institute (IMI) by completing its written and oral assessment program at the AIA in Brussels in 2015.

WWL says: Sources consider Marc Goldstein to be "highly regarded" and "exceptional" for his work as an independent arbitrator and mediator.
