FedArb is thrilled to announce that Hon. Timothy K. Lewis (Former) has joined its panel. He will specialize in resolving disputes related to appellate, business/commercial, corporate investigations and employment/labor matters. He will serve as an arbitrator, mediator and participate in mock trials and corporate investigations.
Before entering private practice, Judge Lewis served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit for nearly seven years. He served on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania for a year and then President George H. W. Bush elevated him to the Court of Appeals in 1992. At the time of both appointments he was the youngest federal judge in the United States.
As a federal judge, Judge Lewis oversaw and authored opinions on all matters that came before him, particularly in the areas of employment disputes, class actions, intellectual property, commercial and corporate disputes. Judge Lewis has developed a national and international ADR practice involving many of the world’s leading corporations. He also provides strategic counseling and conducts moot courts in various federal appellate matters in circuit courts throughout the country.
“As a mediator, Judge Lewis has a proven track record for resolving the most complex disputes,” said Ken Hagen, FedArb’s CEO. “As an arbitrator, he is known for adhering to parties’ deadlines and applying the relevant law. We are delighted to have him join our panel.”
Before his appointment to the federal bench, Judge Lewis served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania and as an Assistant District Attorney in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
Judge Lewis earned his B.A. from Tufts University and his J.D. from Duquesne University School of Law.
For over a decade, the leading law firms have used FedArb’s panel of more than 60 former Article III federal judges and 30 distinguished neutrals to successfully mediate and arbitrate hundreds of high profile complex civil cases–typically achieving results more efficiently and cost effectively than through litigation. FedArb’s panelists also work with law firms on internal investigations, mock trials and on corporate monitoring assignments. FedArb provides aroundthe-clock administrative services and requires its neutrals to honor the parties’ deadlines, saving clients time and money.
