After moving to the U.S., he gained extensive hands-on experience working alongside Hon. Daniel Weinstein (Ret.).

Based in the New York Resolution Center, Dr. Kamminga will serve as an arbitrator and mediator, handling disputes in banking, bankruptcy, business and commercial, class action and mass tort, construction defect, cross-border and international, cybersecurity and privacy, energy and utilities, financial markets, health care and insurance.
Dr. Kamminga’s international profile and multijurisdictional experience have enabled him to develop cultural competency, an in-depth appreciation for the challenges faced by cross-border business and a deep understanding of different legal systems.
In addition to his work as a neutral, Dr. Kamminga is an associate professor of law and an internationally recognized expert and scholar. He has authored several books and dozens of articles on contract theory and dispute resolution. Dr. Kamminga is fluent in Dutch and has an excellent working knowledge of German and French.
