After more than 40 years with Willkie Farr & Gallagher in which he focused his attention on dispute resolution, including litigation, mediation and arbitration, Mr. Kheel is continuing to practice in those areas, but now primarily as a mediator and arbitrator. In addition, however,  Mr. Kheel is also continuing his commercial practice in which he gained considerable experience while at the firm.  That breadth of experience, on a wide variety of commercial matters, makes him particularly effective in helping parties reach a negotiated resolution where one is indicated or navigate through arbitration or litigation where it is not.
