New York Region
One of the larger appellate practices in New York City and the second largest Issues & Appeals group at Jones Day, our New York attorneys have argued before, and clerked for, the U.S. Supreme Court, Second Circuit, and New York federal district courts. Indeed, former appellate court clerks comprise the group. The New York Issues & Appeals group is led by Meir Feder
, former Deputy Chief of the Appellate Unit in the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney's Office. Our New York attorneys offer in-depth experience with the New York courts, and as part of a nationwide practice, can assist clients with needs anywhere in the country.
New York Issues & Appeals attorneys have significant experience on behalf of the world's leading companies and regularly assist on complex and notable cases. Our victories include: In re Dell Inc. Securities Litigation
(successful motion to dismiss in major securities litigation), McLaughlin v. American Tobacco Co.
(seminal Second Circuit class certification decision), State et. rel. Lynch v. Lead Industries Ass'n
(landmark public nuisance case), and Engle v. Liggett Group Inc.
(historic Florida Supreme Court class decertification and reversal of a $145 billion dollar jury verdict).
