As 2020 winds down, I look back at the last 12 months and reflect on what I was able to accomplish on behalf of my clients.
- Business Litigation — 2020 was an unusual year for trials, with many of them being postponed due to COVID-19. Nevertheless, I managed to try cases and arbitrations in the PA Courts of Common Pleas and the NJ Superior Court. My clients won every case I tried or arbitrated to conclusion this year. In addition, I was able to obtain numerous settlements for clients despite the shutdown. My business litigation practice included the representation of businesses, executives and professionals in the following fields: Pharma, Hospitality, Medicine, Law, Construction, Real Estate, Accounting, and Retail. I continue to take great pleasure in the professional relationships that I have developed with my business clientele and I take great pride in their accomplishments, ingenuity and talent.
- Employment Litigation — As always, I represented both employers and employees in compensation, non-competition, and discrimination matters. I negotiated separation agreements, both on behalf of employers and employees. I litigated compensation disputes involving commissions and contractual bonus arrangements. I counseled employees and companies regarding post-employment restrictive covenants. I handled litigation involving claims of discrimination based upon race, religion, sex, age, and disability. I counseled clients on whistleblower claims. I will continue to represent both sides in employment disputes and I view this as a strategic advantage over my colleagues who limit their practices to the representation of either employees or companies.
- Professional Disciplinary Representation — I counseled licensed professionals with regard to their ethical obligations, including in disciplinary matters pending before the PA State Board of Medicine and the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. As a licensed professional myself, I derive tremendous satisfaction when my advice or counsel is helpful to another licensed professional in need.
Here’s to a prosperous 2021 for all!
