Named one of the New Jersey Law Journal’s “New Leaders of the Bar” in 2013, Jeff represents clients ranging from individuals to Global 100 companies, including multinational food and beverage companies, financial institutions, private equity funds and diversified real estate companies. Jeff is acutely focused on efficiently and cost-effectively advancing business objectives through creative, problem-solving, and risk-reducing strategies. Because he appreciates that “success” in litigation does not always align with a win-at-all costs approach, Jeff tailors his litigation strategies, whether in state court, federal court, arbitrations or mediations, to meet the specific objectives behind each individual case.
Jeff has litigated and advised clients regarding a wide range of matters, including corporate governance matters, such as shareholder and operating agreements, fiduciary duty issues, shareholder disputes, alter ego claims, and other claims involving limited liability company and limited partnership issues and structures; business torts, such as post-acquisition disputes, theft of trade secrets, fraud claims, and trademark and unfair competition claims; employment and non-disclosure agreements, including noncompetition, non-solicitation and confidentiality covenants; manufacturing and vendor disputes; complex cross-border disputes; bankruptcy claims, such as fraudulent transfer and preference claims; and white-collar criminal matters and investigations.
