Mr. Cao specializes in commercial arbitration and litigation. He sits as arbitrator and Member of the Expert Committee of China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC), mediator of CCPIT/CCOIC Mediation Center, and mediator of US-China Business Mediation Center.
He has represented both Chinese and foreign clients in over a hundred commercial arbitration and litigation cases before domestic and overseas arbitral tribunals as well as PRC courts at various levels including the Supreme People’s Court.
As a senior arbitrator of CIETAC, Mr. Cao has adjudicated hundreds of arbitration cases throughout almost thirty years. He acted as the presiding arbitrator in most of such cases, and has been highly respected for his professionalism. A number of the cases that Mr. Cao presided were of pervasive influence and selected by CIETAC as exemplary cases.
Mr. Cao has also served as mediator of both CCPIT/CCOIC Mediation Center and US-China Business Mediation Center since they were founded. He presided the first successfully mediated case administered by US-China Business Mediation Center. That case involved disputes arising from a service agreement between a US-based Fortune Global 500 enterprise and a large France-based advertisement company.
In addition, Mr. Cao was an associate professor of the University of International Business and Economics. He was also a visiting scholar of the Law School, Loyola University, from 1990 to 1991.
