His first case was as sole arbitrator in 1977 in Los Angeles in a dispute between a well known Hollywood starlet and a prominent national securities firm. Within the past few years parties from Japan, Korea, India, Bolivia, Germany, Qatar, Canada, Mexico, Finland, and Italy as well as the United States have appeared in arbitrations before him. The subject matter has been quite diverse, including contract disputes; trade regulation; franchise and distribution rights; breach of warranty; executive employment disputes; professional liability; accounting disputes; corporate, joint venture and partnership disputes; securities; private equity; insurance and reinsurance; healthcare; medical devices; real estate development; mortgage loan servicing; software and other technology disputes; and intellectual property including patent licensing.

Mr. Levit's work as a mediator is equally wide ranging in terms of the number and nature of the businesses and disputes he has dealt with but his mediation case load has a decidedly domestic emphasis to it. He is a Certified Mediator by the International Mediation Institute in The Hague. Mr. Levit has mediated scores of complex commercial disputes ranging from a high nine figure take or pay contract case; to pharmaceutical licensing disputes; software disputes; franchise and product distribution disputes; close corporation shareholder disputes; an aircraft purchase and sale dispute; Native American law disputes; various kinds of insurance and reinsurance disputes; employment disputes; a multi-party condemnation case; real estate disputes; to a dispute involving a family office and one of its clients.
