On April 17, Partner Ian Heath Gershengorn served as a panelist at the Federal Judicial Center’s National Workshop for US Magistrate Judges in Miami.  The panel addressed the US Supreme Court’s arbitration decisions, focusing particularly on the recent cases of Epic Systems v. Lewis and Morris v. Murphy Oil.  The panel was moderated by Judge Tim Baker of Indiana.  Co-panelists included Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of UC Berkeley School of Law and Michael Rubin of Altschuler Berzon.  The audience included magistrate judges from across the nation.

Mr. Gershengorn’s practice focuses on advising clients on a range of complex litigation and strategy problems, with particular emphasis on commercial disputes and challenges involving government, regulatory and other public policy issues.
