Charles Moxley has been an arbitrator for over 35 years, presiding over more than 400 cases, many of them large & complex and involving multiple parties, substantial issues, and high stakes, including cases involving claims in the hundreds of millions of dollars and, in one instance, over a billion dollars. Mr. Moxley trains arbitrators for the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA), teaches arbitration law & practice at Fordham Law School, and serves as Distinguished ADR Practitioner in Residence at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. He has been selected by the American Arbitration Association and CPR to provide training in contemporary arbitration Best Practices.

Mr. Moxley is Co-Chair of the Committee on Arbitration and ADR of the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section of NYSBA and has served as Chair of NYSBA’s Dispute Resolution Section and is a Fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators and of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and an ARIAS-US Certified Arbitrator. He has written and lectured extensively on Best Practices in Commercial Arbitration, including in the areas of discovery, motion practice, and arbitration law. The three day arbitration training program he designs, organizes, and co-leads each year for NYSBA comprehensively covers all areas of commercial arbitration, including the selection of arbitrators, conflicts/disclosures, organizational issues, conducting effective preliminary hearings to design and establish the process appropriate for the particular case, determination of appropriate levels of discovery and motion practice, proactive management of cases, dealings among panel members, resolution of discovery disputes, conducting effective, efficient, and fair hearings, and writing fair, well-reasoned, and enforceable awards. The trainings also include segments on managing e-discovery, arbitrator ethics, arbitration law, arbitral decision-making, artificial intelligence, and the distinctive features of international arbitration.

An IMI Certified and CEDR Accredited Mediator, Mr. Moxley has mediated more than 75 cases, many of them large and complex, involving multiple parties and high stakes, and has been a bar leader in trying to enhance the availability of mediation in New York courts. He is an inaugural member of the Chief Judge’s Advisory Committee on mediation in the New York court system.

As an arbitrator, Mr. Moxley is committed to providing all parties a fair and effectively managed process, using contemporary Best Practices designed to achieve arbitration’s promise as an alternative to litigation, consistently with parties’ agreements and applicable rules and law. As a mediator, Mr. Moxley’s decades of experience in virtually all kinds of business and financial disputes enable him quickly to understand parties’ interests and needs and help them find common ground when they are ready to do so.

Before becoming a full-time neutral, Mr. Moxley was a commercial, securities, and insurance litigator in major cases throughout the United States, starting his career at Davis Polk & Wardwell and thereafter as a member or counsel with several smaller New York City firms. He attended Columbia Law School and clerked for a United States District Judge in the Southern District of New York. As a litigator, Mr. Moxley represented a wide range of entities and individuals as plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of cases in court cases and arbitrations.

In addition to his work as an arbitrator, mediator, and litigator, Mr. Moxley has taught at New York area law schools for over 30 years, teaching arbitration law and practice and, before that, civil procedure, evidence, New York practice, professional responsibility, nuclear weapons law, and law & literature. Moxley served as a trainer for the AAA in its Muscular Arbitrator series of in-person and webinar programs, focusing on how arbitrators can best conduct their arbitrations to achieve the efficiency that parties often want in choosing arbitration over litigation, employing practices such as those highlighted in NYSBA’s Guidelines for conducting the pre-hearing phases of domestic and international arbitrations and the Protocols of the College of Commercial Arbitrators.

With his extensive experience as an arbitrator in large cases and as a trainer and lecturer on arbitration, Mr. Moxley has a good working relationship with other leading arbitrators, enabling him to work cooperatively with them on panels, whether as chair, party-appointed arbitrator or co-arbitrator. Mr. Moxley’s experience as a trainer of arbitration Best Practices enables him to facilitate the use of such practices in cases in which he is involved, consistently with the needs of the particular case and the parties’ arbitration agreement and any stipulations as to process.

Moxley’s expertise in arbitration discovery, a subject about which he has written and lectured, enables him to bring efficiencies into the process, again, subject to the needs of the particular case and consistently with parties’ arbitration agreements and chosen arbitration rules.

Because of Mr. Moxley’s extensive experience and expertise, he is selected as sole arbitrator and chair in high stakes cases material to companies and individuals involved. Committed to sound preparation, Mr. Moxley proactively manages cases in which he is chair or sole arbitrator so as to achieve the efficiencies arbitration offers, subject to the needs of the particular case and parties’ arbitration agreements and chosen rules.

Mr. Moxley is actively engaged in international arbitration and mediation. He regularly serves in such cases and is a member of the New York City Bar Association’s Committee on International Commercial Disputes and a member of the New York International Arbitration Club and the New York International Arbitration Center.

Mr. Moxley is committed to public service and engagement. He has written extensively and regularly teaches and speaks on the subject of weapons of mass destruction and international law.
