Josh Martin to Present at 12th Annual Arbitration Institute
At the 12th Annual Arbitration Institute in Philadelphia on May 16, senior counsel Josh Martin will facilitate a breakout session on “Preliminary Conference and Setting the Stage.” The Arbitration Institute is hosted by the American Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section and features sessions on every stage of the arbitral process examined from the vantage point of neutrals, advocates and in-house counsel.
Judge Martin concentrates his law practice on mediation and arbitration and on business counseling, particularly in the areas of telecommunications, public utilities and governmental relations. Prior to joining Potter Anderson, he was President and Chief Executive Officer of Verizon Delaware from 1996 until early 2005, where he was responsible for all aspects of its telecommunications business within the state of Delaware, including regulatory, financial and operational matters. He first joined Verizon's predecessor (Bell Atlantic) in Delaware in 1990 as Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary. Prior to that, Josh was a Delaware Superior Court Judge for eight years. Earlier, he served on the Delaware Public Service Commission from 1978 to 1982, including three years as Chairman. A physicist by training, Josh began his legal career as a patent attorney for Hercules, Inc. from 1974 to 1982.
