Gilda Turitz Named Fellow of College of Commercial Arbitrators

April 2016

Sideman & Bancroft partner Gilda Turitz has been admitted as a Fellow in the College of Commercial Arbitrators (CCA), an invitation only fellowship of elite and experienced commercial arbitrators. Ms. Turitz is an active member of the American Arbitration Association’s national panel of commercial arbitrators. She is also a member of CPR’s California ADR and Banking, Accounting and Financial Services Panel, as well as a member of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.

The CCA is a national organization of commercial arbitrators aimed at providing a meaningful contribution to the profession, the public and to the businesses and lawyers who depend on commercial arbitration as a primary means of dispute resolution. The CCA promotes the highest standards of conduct, professionalism and ethical practice, develops “best practices,” provides peer training and professional development.

To qualify for admittance, candidates must receive a nomination from a current Fellow and be seconded by at least two additional Fellows. The Membership Committee then evaluates the nominees based on breadth and depth of experience as a commercial arbitrator, with particular emphasis on the nominee’s work as a commercial arbitrator in the previous 10-year period. This year, 18 commercial arbitrators from across the country were welcomed into the fellowship.
