September 22, 2021 – FedArb is proud to announce that David R. Hill, Esq. has joined its panel. He will be based in New Jersey and available to serve as a mediator, corporate monitor, expert witness and oversee corporate investigations and mock trials across the country.
He is nationally recognized as a leader in electric power, natural gas and other energy matters. He has extensive experience in regulatory matters, civil litigation, employment law, commercial agreements and transactions, administrative law, ethics and corporate compliance.
Mr. Hill is part of a new effort at FedArb to bring energy-related matters to private dispute resolution.
“David has unique and valuable experience to help guide our new energy practice,” said Kennen D. Hagen, FedArb president and CEO. “With the many complex issues in the energy industry today, David and other panelists such as former FERC Chairman Joe Kelliher can help parties expedite the resolution of matters and avoid costly and time-consuming litigation and regulatory disputes.”
Prior to joining FedArb, Mr. Hill held a number of senior positions in private practice and in government where he advised officials at the highest levels in public companies, private law firms and the federal government. While serving as NRG Energy, Inc.’s executive vice president and general counsel, he was responsible for the company’s legal, regulatory, environmental and government affairs matters. As general counsel of the U.S. Department of Energy he was integrally involved in all aspects of DOE’s energy, environmental and national security matters. In private practice, Mr. Hill handled a wide variety of commercial and regulatory disputes involving electricity, natural gas, employment and insurance matters.
He graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.S. in Agriculture and earned his J.D. from the Northwestern 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 around-the-clock administrative services and requires its neutrals to honor the parties’ deadlines, saving clients time and money.
