Charles T. Kotuby Jr

Charles Kotuby counsels both private clients and sovereign governments in complex global disputes. His U.S-based practice is focused on government regulation and federal appeals. He has authored briefs in more than a dozen cases before the U.S.Supreme Court and has argued cases concerning federal statutory and constitutional issues before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Third, Sixth, and Ninth Circuits.

His global practice is focused on international litigation, investment arbitration, and judicial support for international proceedings.

He has successfully acted on behalf of foreign states and state officials sued in U.S. federal court; represented both U.S. and foreign companies seeking U.S. discovery in aid of proceedings abroad; and has experience advising energy and mining clients on investment protections in Latin America, Africa, and Central Asia.

Charles is an Adjunct Professor of Law at Washington & Lee University, where he teaches international litigation and arbitration, and a member of the Advisory Board of the Center for International Legal Education at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
