Rujul Patel


Rujul concentrates her practice on professional liability insurance coverage, helping insurer clients assess and limit their exposure and, when necessary, oversee litigation efforts. 

Prior to joining the firm, she worked as a financial lines associate with a Global 200 law firm. In that role, she worked on behalf of professional liability insurers, issuing formal coverage position letters, preparing reports, analyzing liability, and working with defense counsel to mitigate damages. 

Rujul's work is informed by valuable civil and criminal experience in white collar securities cases, which she gained during law school. She served as an extern with the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force and Narcotics unit for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. There, she conducted research for federal prosecutors on complex insider trading, market manipulation, and "pump and dump" schemes. She also clerked for a nationally recognized securities litigation firm, where she evaluated newly filed securities class action lawsuits with a focus on analyzing falsity, scienter, and loss causation allegations. Additionally, she calculated damages, conducted research, assisted with discovery, and drafted depositions for complex securities fraud and antitrust matters. 

Rujul earned her J.D., cum laude, from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where she was a senior notes editor for the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution. She earned her B.A. from Binghamton University. She is a native Gujarati speaker and is conversational in Hindi.
