The Newark office serves a number of Fortune 500 companies locally, nationally, and abroad. Several of the office’s lawyers and practices are recognized by Chambers USA and/or U.S. News-Best Lawyers, including environmental, insurance coverage, intellectual property and labor and employment. The office counts former presidents of New Jersey federal and county bar associations; a former Associate General Counsel for the United States Environmental Protection Agency; a Fellow of the American College of Environmental Lawyers; a New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce board member; chairperson of New Jersey Law Journal’s Editorial Board; and an adjunct professor of law for Seton Hall University School of Law.

Newark’s environmental team has been at the center of emerging issues, including brownfields restoration, natural resource damages, and environmental justice, as well as in developing community outreach projects to gain local support for manufacturing operations and related environmental permitting. Representative experience includes favorably settling a complex environmental matter for a multibillion dollar global company that resulted in a full recovery of the government’s share of responsibility at fifteen plants around the country that the government commandeered for military purposes.

The commercial disputes team handles “must win” business disputes for plaintiffs and defendants across diverse industries. The insurance coverage team handles a wide range of claims against insurance companies, including matters related to data privacy, environmental site remediation, construction accidents and manufacturing events, employment practices, and directors and officers’ liability coverage. The product liability and toxic tort team is experienced in litigating all stages of product liability and toxic tort cases from pleadings through trial and appeal, including single defendant cases; litigation involving dozens of plaintiffs and hundreds of defendants; nationwide class actions; and in matters where we have served as regional or national coordination counsel of mass tort litigation. We serve as trial counsel for a global pharmaceutical company in litigation regarding its osteoporosis product line. The labor and employment team counsels management on workplace policies and practices. We also represent employers in litigation, including class action litigation, concerning a wide variety of issues from discrimination to wrongful termination and wage and hour claims.

The intellectual property team advises clients in clearing, obtaining, licensing, and assigning IP; performing due diligence with respect to IP rights involved in merger and acquisition transactions; and litigating matters in federal and state court, while our health care team advises clients on regulatory compliance, entity formation and restructuring, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, fraud and abuse issues, corporate governance, and legal and ethical issues associated with religiously based health care services, among others.

The real estate practice focuses on land use, commercial and retail leasing, conveyance and financing transactions, real estate tax appeals, and real estate related litigation. The team routinely appears before the planning and zoning boards of municipalities throughout the state, has tried numerous land use cases in the New Jersey Superior Court, and regularly argues tax appeal cases before the New Jersey Tax Court and numerous County Tax Boards. Similarly, our public policy and regulatory lawyers understand the legal landscape in New Jersey and advise clients on policies, proposed legislation or regulations that might affect them.
