To serve as a neutral arbitrator is a privilege and honor. The participants in any arbitration rely upon those appointed to serve as an arbitrator to be absolutely neutral, to conduct arbitration proceedings in a fair and dignified manner, to carefully and thoughtfully weigh the evidence and arguments submitted and to issue an award that is well-reasoned and principled. Fred Greenberg brings forty-one years of legal experience as a litigator, business lawyer and labor attorney to his service as an arbitrator. His experience has prepared him for service in this important role. He has augmented his decades of legal experience with multiple arbitration training programs, including the New York State Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section three-day commercial arbitration training program conducted in June 2019, multiple FINRA training programs commencing in May 2019, NYSBA continuing legal education on FINRA arbitration and New Jersey State Court initial arbitrator training. He has also served as a volunteer judge in the Annual Securities Dispute Resolution Triathlon sponsored by FINRA and the Hugh L. Carey Center for Dispute Resolution of St. John’s University School of Law. The Triathlon is a competition between teams from participating law schools demonstrating their advocacy skills in negotiation, mediation and arbitration of a securities dispute. He has been a member of the New York State Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section since 2019.
