FedArb is proud to announce that Robert H. Klonoff, Esq. has joined its panel. He will be based in Oregon and serve as a special master, mock trial panelist, expert witness and arbitrator. His areas of expertise include class actions, multidistrict litigation (MDL), civil procedure, appellate procedure and attorneys’ fees.
In addition to his role at FedArb, Mr. Klonoff serves as the Jordan D. Schnitzer Professor of Law at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. He previously served as the dean of the law school from 2007 until 2014.
Mr. Klonoff has served as an expert witness in numerous high-profile class actions and MDLs, including British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon MDL, Chinese Manufactured Drywall MDL, Equifax Data Breach MDL, NFL Concussion MDL, Syngenta Genetically Modified Corn MDL, Volkswagen Clean Diesel MDL, and Wells Fargo Unauthorized Accounts. Additionally, many judges have frequently cited Professor Klonoff’s testimony in ruling on class certification, the fairness of class action settlements and the determination of attorneys’ fees.
“Robert is a world-renowned expert on MDLs and class action procedures,” said Ken Hagen, FedArb’s CEO and President. “He’s been working alongside us on our MDL Advisory Board for a year and we are very excited to have him officially join our panel.”
He is the author of three textbooks and numerous articles on class actions and MDL, and the co-author of a textbook on federal appellate practice. Mr. Klonoff earned his J.D. from Yale 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.
