Robert Sentner

For the past thirty years, I have advocated for and counseled my clients in complex litigations and international arbitrations in New York and around the world.   My cases have ranged from energy and pipeline projects in Africa, India and Latin America, to financial fraud and breach of contract cases in Eastern Europe, Asia and the United States.  I have led arbitrations successfully at ICSID, the ICC, ICDR, LCIA, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, and under the UNCITRAL rules, and have tried numerous cases in New York federal and state courts.

I thrive on digesting complicated facts and law and advocating my clients’ interests zealously.  I am a very hands-on lawyer.  I believe that the lead lawyer on a case must be fully absorbed in the details of the case.

Prior to forming Sentner Safran, I headed Nixon Peabody’s International Disputes Team for many years.

I speak frequently on international disputes and consult with companies wrestling with how to structure dispute resolution clauses in cross-border transactions.

I obtained my law degree from Boston University Law School in 1984, and my undergraduate degree from Hobart College in 1980.
