New York-based international arbitrator and mediator Marc Goldstein is a perennial recipient of elite-level ranking of US international arbitrators in Chambers Global and Chambers USA. And comparable recognition from Global Arbitration Review affiliate Who’s Who Legal (WWL). A peer review comment gathered by Chambers USA 2023 states: “Marc knows arbitration law like no one else – if I had to choose a sole arbitrator, I’d choose him because he’s really smart and has good judgment. He’s amazingly bright.” Peer review comments gathered by WWL in 2023 state: "Marc has an amazing legal mind and palatial knowledge of arbitration" "He is an immensely thoughtful arbitrator". "He is highly intelligent and analytical."

Having sat in well over 100 arbitrations (and served as counsel in a similar number) -- and completed a comparable number of mediations as a mediator certified by the International Mediation Institute -- Mr. Goldstein is often appointed by large multinationals, investors, and State entities, to sit in disputes in the construction, project finance, financial products, financial services, life sciences, insurance and M&A sectors. Mr. Goldstein is the creator and author of the widely-read Arbitration Commentaries blog, where he has published more than 250 essays and comments on arbitration law and practice. He has been a Fellow of the US-based College of Commercial Arbitrators for 15 years, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators since 1993 and member of its New York Branch since its inception, and has been a sustaining member of the American Law Institute and was an active participant in the ALI’s decade-long project on the Restatement of the US Law of International Arbitration. He is an active member of the leading arbitration community groups in New York, notably the New York International Arbitration Club, the International Commercial Disputes Committee of the New York City Bar Association and the CPR Arbitration Committee. He is a panelist of major arbitrator rosters in the USA and Canada, as well as in Asia on the HKIAC, SIAC, KCAB and AIAC rosters. He teaches arbitration to experienced lawyers in the Gold Standard Program of the Toronto Commercial Arbitration Society and to graduate LLM Students at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.

For more than two decades following graduation from the University of Virginia Law School, where he was an editor of the Virginia Law Review, Mr Goldstein practiced at Proskauer Rose in New York, ultimately leading the international arbitration practice.
