Bruce Lane is retired from the active practice of law, but he regularly serves as a neutral arbitrator or mediator in large, complex commercial disputes, either independently or through the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR).
After being selected by the parties, I arbitrate or mediate substantial commercial and business disputes. In doing so, I draw heavily on my 45 years of diverse experience as a practicing attorney.
Before joining Nixon Peabody, I co-founded Lane and Edson, PC, a DC-based law firm, and served as its Chief Executive Officer. During my years of practice, I engaged in a transactional practice, including tax litigation, corporate reorganization, estate planning, real estate, housing and urban affairs, mergers and acquisitions and corporate and securities law. Major clients included investment bankers, equity capital corporations, leveraged buy-out entities, public and private limited partnerships, foreign pension funds, developers, REITs, trade associations, small businesses, professional corporations and wealthy individuals. I also resolved many disputes among business partners.
Prior to founding Lane and Edson, PC, I served as a senior trial attorney with the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Secretary and Assistant General Counsel (corporate and tax) of the Communications Satellite Corporation and Vice President and General Counsel of the National Corporation for Housing Partnerships.
I was co-editor-in-chief of the Housing and Development Reporter, published by Thomson/West, from 1972 until 2011, and I was a contributing author of The Art of M&A, published by Dow Jones-Irwin. I have also authored or co-authored numerous books and articles dealing with federal tax matters, including tax refund litigation, limited partnerships and federal housing matters.
I am a Fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators, a Fellow and Past President of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers and a Life Member of the American Law Institute.
