On September 9th, the Federal Republic of Germany appointed Professor Franco Ferrari to the panel of arbitrators of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). Ferrari is director of NYU Law's Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law (CTLACL).
This is Ferrari’s second appointment by a government to ICSID panels of arbitrators and conciliators—he was appointed by Saint Lucia in 2015—and his involvement in ICSID matters is extensive. Ferrari stated that he was “obviously very honored to be appointed by the Federal Republic of Germany.” Although an Italian national, Ferrari was born and raised in Germany and holds a post-graduate degree from Augsburg University School of Law.
Other members of the NYU Law community have also been appointed as arbitrators/conciliators to the ICSID:
Diego Fernandez Arroyo, a professor at Sciences Po Law School in Paris and former scholar in residence at CTLACL, was appointed by the Republic of Argentina.
Pedro Julio Martinez-Fraga, partner and co-leader of the international arbitration practice at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner and an adjunct professor at NYU Law, was appointed by the United States.
Brian King, an adjunct professor and distinguished practitioner in residence at NYU Law, was appointed by Saint Lucia.
