Fred Bennett, the Global Vice-Chair of the firm’s international arbitration practice, and Chair of the U.S. practice, recently completed his third (and final, because of term limits) four-year term as a member of the American Arbitration Association’s Board of Directors and Executive Committee, and received the AAA’s award for Outstanding Director Service. During his tenure, Fred served on the AAA’s Nominating and Governance Committee (which is in charge of nominating new members of the Board), chaired the task force for revising the AAA Commercial Rules for the first time in over a decade (new rules adopted in October 2014), and served on the committee for revision of the international arbitration rules for the AAA’s International Center for Dispute Resolution. He has been appointed to help implement the AAA’s newly created “Master Mediation Panel” for California and the Western United States.
