Mr. Fogel has acted as arbitrator in over 300 commercial matters since 1974, more than 15% of which were large or complex matters heard by three arbitrator panels. He has also served as a mediator in more than 300 commercial disputes since 1994.

He completed 14 months of service on national panel of mediators and arbitrators in connection with the settlement of national insurance company policyholder federal class action litigation, mediating and arbitrating more than 200 policyholder disputes. He concluded more than two years service as an arbitrator and mediator in a mass claims proceeding arising out of the settlement of class action litigation brought by various employees of a State regarding on-call compensation, in connection with which he mediated or arbitrated close to 300 separate employee claims.

Many of the cases handled as a mediator and as an arbitrator have involved multi-party disputes, including, for example, construction disputes between owners, general contractors, subcontractors and architects; corporate and partnership split ups and reorganizations having three or more factions; real estate disputes between purchasers, sellers, real estate brokers and title companies; class action settlements involving thousands of claimants and multiple governmental agencies; and public sector matters involving representatives of various state, county and municipal departments, property owners, citizen groups, school districts and other interested parties.
