FedArb is pleased to announce two new international panelists have joined the panel, adding timely and new expertise to the panel. Dean Armstrong QC and Richard Wilson QC bring impressive expertise in a variety of areas and establish a formative presence in the UK.
A highly experienced practitioner, Mr. Armstrong has been involved in some of the biggest cases of the last decade, including the collapse of the News of The World newspaper. Recently he has developed an expertise in cyber law and co-authored Cyber Security Law and Practice, an authoritative and thorough textbook in the fast-developing world of technology. In August 2019, Mr. Armstrong also published the first legal textbook on blockchain and cryptocurrency.
He will focus on resolving disputes related to corporate investigations/white collar, cyber security, data privacy and security, international arbitration, mergers and acquisitions and securities/financial services.
Mr. Wilson is a barrister who specializes in commercial, art, administrative and public law. He is a part-time judge (sitting in both civil and criminal jurisdictions), an accredited mediator and a visiting law professor at Coventry University. He will focus on resolving accounting/finance, banking/lender liability, employment/labor, international arbitration and oil, gas, energy and water disputes. Mr. Wilson also has considerable experience in legal disputes related to art and cultural property. He is general editor of the textbook Commercial and Mercantile Courts Litigation Practice, is a contributing author of Criminal Judicial Review and author of the chapter Judicial Review: An Introduction to the Key Principles.
“We’re very excited about the skillset and depth of experience both Dean and Richard bring to our panel,” said FedArb president and CEO Ken Hagen. “Establishing a presence in the UK allows FedArb to bring its expertise in intellectual property and cyberlaw to the European marketplace. Additionally, we believe Richard’s reputation as a leader in art law will make a significant impact in New York and other art capitals around the world.”

FedArb’s high profile federal judges also work with law firms on internal investigations and oversee mock trials. FedArb provides around-the-clock administrative services and honor the parties’ deadlines, saving clients time and money.
