Joshua Fellenbaum, Director (US Qualified), Dispute Resolution, Fieldfisher

I have gained diverse and high profile experience working on international disputes for leading law firms in both civil and common legal systems. My experience includes acting as counsel, tribunal secretary and advisor in international disputes covering a number of sectors including mining, energy, automotive, commodities, insurance, telecommunications and infrastructure. I also have experience representing clients in matters concerning state responsibility and public international law.

I have been involved in cases under the rules of various arbitral institutions, including the ICC, FCCC, ICSID, LCIA, PCA and SCC, plus experience of ad hoc proceedings under the UNCITRAL rules and the Swedish Arbitration Act. 

I serve on the Peer Review Board of "ICSID Review — Foreign Investment Law Journal" and was appointed by the ICCA Executive Body to serve on the ICCA Publications Advisory Board. I was also re-appointed to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution Young & International Global Advisory Board and serve as a faculty member of the HKIAC's Tribunal Secretary Accreditation Programme. Previously, I served as a Vice Chair of the International Arbitration Committee of the American Bar Association's Section of International Law.

I co-authored a chapter on political risk insurance and investment arbitration that was published in an arbitration treatise titled "International Investment Law". I have also published articles in leading arbitration publications such as "GEA v. Ukraine and the Battle of Treaty Interpretation Principles Over the Salini Test" in "Arbitration International" and co-authored the "Young ICCA Guide on Arbitral Secretaries".

I was identified as being among the world's leading arbitration specialists under 45 to be listed in Who's Who Legal: Arbitration - Future Leaders 2017 and 2018.

I frequently speak on issues relating to international arbitration and have lectured at Queen Mary Summer School for Hamline University.

Prior to attending law school, I gained experience interning for two U.S. Senators and a Senator in the Czech Republic.
