FedArb is proud to announce that Cedric Chao has joined its panel. He will be based in Northern California and serve as an arbitrator, mediator and special master.
Prior to joining FedArb, Mr. Chao served as the U.S. head of the DLA Piper’s International Arbitration practice and before that, as a partner at Morrison & Foerster where he established and led the firm’s international litigation and arbitration practice.
Mr. Chao’s experience includes numerous multibillion dollar disputes—reflecting that clients come to him to handle their most important complex commercial and technology disputes. He has led BigLaw teams for years in high stakes and precedent setting disputes in U.S. courts and international arbitration tribunals. His practice is not limited to the United States, and his expertise in international arbitrations enables him to work on matters across multiple continents. He is a frequent writer and speaker on international arbitration matters.
“Cedric is a renowned legal problem solver with an international stature among large international institutions,” said Ken Hagen, FedArb’s CEO and president. “We are very excited to have someone with his international expertise join our panel.”
Mr. Chao earned his B.A. from Stanford University and his J.D. from Harvard Law School.
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 around-the-clock administrative services and requires its neutrals to honor the parties’ deadlines, saving clients time and money.
