November 28, 2023 – FedArb is pleased to announce that Hon. Eduardo Robreno (Ret) has joined its panel. Based in Philadelphia, he currently serves as an arbitrator, mediator, special master, corporate monitor and a court-appointed neutral. Judge Robreno will also spend significant time working in Miami and will resolve matters related to antitrust, bankruptcy, class actions, employment, insurance, mass torts and more.
During his 30-year tenure on the bench, Judge Robreno presided over more than 100 civil and criminal jury trials and authored more than 3,000 opinions. He oversaw significant multidistrict litigation, including In re Asbestos Products Liability, MDL-875, one of the largest MDLs in the federal courts, disposing of approximately 180,000 cases and 10 million claims, and In re Google Cookie Placement Consumer Privacy Litigation, MDL-2358 in the district of Delaware.
“FedArb is thrilled to have someone with Judge Robreno’s exceptional talent and reputation join our panel,” said Kennen D. Hagen, FedArb’s president and CEO. “He is well deserving of the awards bestowed on him for his work in MDL and mass torts, and his expertise will augment our ability to help clients resolve these matters.”
“Judge Robreno is an exciting addition to our expansion into international arbitration,” said Jerry Roth, head of FedArb’s European and Latin American desk. “Miami is a growing area for the international arbitration community and Judge Robreno will be a terrific resource for our clients.”
Judge Robreno received his B.A. from Westfield State University and his J.D. from Rutgers Law School. He is the first Cuban-American to sit on any federal court and the first Latino on the federal bench in Pennsylvania.
For almost two decades, leading law firms have used FedArb’s panel of more than 60 former Article III federal judges and 60 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.
