Jeremy has more than 20 years of experience in business law, including conducting complex corporate and commercial litigation and arbitration, as well as transactional work and day-to-day legal counseling.
In litigation, Jeremy has represented clients and tried cases to verdict and arbitrated matters to final award in matters involving large frauds, breaches of fiduciary duty, breaches of contract and joint venture agreements, complex financial instrument and securities litigation, real estate lending, shareholder derivative suits, stock option litigation, construction disputes, employment disputes, and violations of restrictive covenant agreements by employees. He has experience in cross-border litigation in the United States, Canada, and England, including matters involving securities fraud, trade secret theft, copyright and trademark infringement, commodities fraud, investment liability/mandatory indemnification issues, RICO claims, employment contracts, and management buyout litigation. He has been lead trial counsel in U.S. federal courts, New York state and other state courts, and private dispute resolution in the American Arbitration Association, FINRA, JAMS, and the International Chamber of Commerce International Court of Arbitration. Jeremy also has extensive federal and state court injunction experience.
Jeremy’s corporate practice embraces all areas of corporate transactional and advisory roles. In transactional work, he has represented clients in mergers and acquisitions, sales and leases, employment agreements and terminations, and all manner of commercial transactions, including private investment deals, technology transactions, and private equity. In advisory work, he acts as general counsel to a number of different businesses and provides counsel and advice to established businesses and startups on corporate relationship creation and architecture; corporate governance, including disputes between partners and advising boards of directors; and counseling with respect to day-to-day business issues.
Jeremy’s training as a trial lawyer gives him an unusual perspective on corporate matters, as he has seen and litigated the results of failed deals and ventures. He views corporate work as a form of centralized risk management, insofar as well-designed contracts on other corporate documents foster productive partnerships and can help prevent disputes and litigation.
