NEW YORK, October 29, 2019 — Tamar Wise, a member of Cozen O’Connor’s Commercial Litigation Department, has been named one of New York City’s 40 Under 40 Rising Stars by City & State New York. Wise represents clients in a wide range of complex commercial litigation matters including securities, contract, defamation, and real estate cases in jurisdictions nationwide. Wise also maintains a robust appellate practice. In 2019, Wise second-chaired a high-profile First Amendment victory before the U.S. Supreme Court in Manhattan Community Access Center v. Halleck. The Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling will have wide-ranging implications in First Amendment and media law, including in the developing space of Constitutional claims surrounding social media.
