Eric is a proven trial lawyer who has successfully litigated complex commercial cases involving antitrust, securities, partnership, and intellectual property disputes.
He was a member of the trial team representing American Express in one of the most significant recent cases litigated by the U.S. Department of Justice under Section 1 of the Sherman Act. This lawsuit culminated in a seven-week bench trial in which Eric conducted cross-examinations of key government witnesses.

In addition to his trial practice, Eric has been actively involved in advising hedge funds and investment firms regarding litigation-related matters, especially relating to energy and infrastructure projects, and mortgage backed securities, CDOs, and syndicated loans. Eric’s op-ed, “How Big Banks Want to Game the Mortgage Mess,” was published in The Wall Street Journal on May 4, 2009. He also has been quoted regarding issues related to mortgage-backed securities in the Financial Times and The Hedge Fund Law Report.
