Lew is a commercial litigator with more than 45 years of experience in prosecuting and defending actions involving complex business, RICO, corporate, contract, securities fraud, employment, entertainment, and real estate disputes.

Lew handles all phases of litigation from initial investigation to final resolution, including case strategy, pleadings, motion practice, briefing, preparation of witnesses and expert witnesses, depositions, electronic and paper discovery, jury selection, direct and cross examination of witnesses in court and arbitration hearings, post-trial and post-hearing submissions, and appeals.

Lew was a partner for more than 10 years in the prominent New York boutique litigation firm Coblence & Warner (now Warner Partners), whose clients included the Andy Warhol Estate, the New York Yankees, Yves St. Laurent, Patricia Duff, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Bill Fugazy, Joseph Jett, and diet Dr. Stuart Berger.

Lew was a key member of the Coblence & Warner defense team that secured (i) the dismissal of claims by venerable Wall Street securities firm Kidder, Peabody & Co. against Joseph Jett in an arbitration in which Kidder sought $83 million in damages for Mr. Jett’s government bond trading activities at the firm, and (ii) the return of $5.7 million which Kidder had frozen in his cash management account. At the time, the Jett – Kidder bond trading episode was the biggest Wall Street scandal ever, and Kidder subsequently ceased to exist as a result.

Lew has had some 25 reported decisions in state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate levels. His cases have involved up to $480 million in dispute, and his significant settlements have been upwards of $31 million. He has handled or participated in a number of arbitrations before FINRA and the AAA, and has handled a number of mediations before JAMS and court-appointed mediators.

Lew's core competencies: Prosecuting and Defending Litigation or Arbitration Matters Concerning Complex Business, RICO, Corporate, Contract, Securities Fraud, Employment, Entertainment, and Real Estate Disputes.

Lew's admissions: New York State, District of Columbia, United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and United States District Court, Eastern District of New York.
