Public Interest Commitment
Greg represents indigent criminal defendants in appellate proceedings. He recently led a team securing the reversal of a felony conviction based on insufficient evidence.
A complex commercial litigation generalist, Greg is an aggressive trial lawyer with experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in matters involving securities, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, RICO, contempt, insurance, antitrust, employment, patents, and multijurisdictional regulatory regimes. He works with a range of clients that include pharmaceutical companies, private equity firms, real estate firms, energy companies, insurers, stockholders, executives, and cryptocurrency stakeholders.
Clients approach Greg for innovative solutions to challenging problems. On the plaintiff side, Greg has secured multimillion dollar settlements, including without the need for litigation, and constructed multibillion dollar claims that other litigants copied in follow-on suits. On the defense side, Greg has designed strategies that have resulted in the dismissal of claims seeking billions of dollars in damages.
