What exit opportunities exist for international arbitration? I don’t want to litigate, and am a non-American so government jobs (which seem to be what my colleagues are exiting into) aren’t an option for me. I don’t ever see myself making partner (nor do I want to), and I feel totally stuck.

Is litigation finance a possible interest?

Just spitballing, but are there any opportunities with people who work as  arbiters? My (limited) experience in the field has mostly been in the UK but there are lawyers/firms that are more focused on serving as arbiters, not representing clients. The AAA has a mediator search tool that could be a good place to start. But honestly, the best people to talk to are going to be others in your field, because these aren’t BigLaw firms.

There are also counsel roles at the institutions, such as ICSID.
