Evan Slavitt provides insightful arbitration of complex commercial and consumer cases, informed by years of litigation work in private practice and government service. With experience in both prosecution and defense, he can quickly grasp the needs of parties on opposing sides of a dispute and help them move toward successful resolution.
As general counsel of a multinational manufacturing corporation, Slavitt brings to his arbitration work a thorough understanding of corporate crisis situations and complex lawsuits. In addition, he is a member of the commercial, environmental and appellate panels of the American Arbitration Association, and he is a neutral with the World International Intellectual Property Organization.
Slavitt’s past work bolsters his unique perspectives. He also has been principal and director of a business consulting firm as well as a partner in several law firms that focused on crisis management, turnaround, and resolution of internal business disputes. That role included consulting on negotiation of complex financing, borrowing, and syndication transactions, and he consulted with companies facing Chapter 11 reorganizations.
As a trial lawyer, Slavitt managed complex litigation involving environmental, corporate/accounting disputes, fraud, and antitrust matters, and investigating and defending cases involving white-collar crime and healthcare fraud and abuse. Slavitt spent the better part of a decade working for the government, including as a trial attorney for the antitrust division of the U.S. Department of Justice and as assistant U.S. attorney and civil division deputy chief for the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.
Slavitt received his juris doctorate from Harvard Law School, and he received master’s and bachelor’s degrees in economics from Yale University.
