Years In Practice

David leads the firm’s highly regarded appellate practice, co-chairs our nationally ranked Indian Law and Gaming team and maintains a varied litigation practice involving business disputes, insurance, construction, products and premises liability.

What do you focus on?

Appeals and complex motions

My appellate work has taken me to the Supreme Court, but my daily challenge is to develop practical strategies to achieve client goals in much busier lower appellate courts where most law is made. Economy of expression is key in any court. I have represented individuals, business and municipal clients in often high-profile appeals throughout New York State and across the country. My passion for appellate work regularly combines with my commitment to pro bono work. Recent pro bono appeals have included representing a veterans group in the U.S. Circuit Court for the Federal Circuit and a national law center to prevent gun violence in the Illinois Supreme Court and Ninth Circuit.

Indian Law

We practice at the highest levels in the country representing counties and municipalities in the highest profile cases involving Indian land claims, tribal recognition, casino development and related jurisdictional, regulatory and taxing disputes. My team and I recently secured a historic victory for two counties in central New York, dismissing all tribal land claims ending what had been a 40-year odyssey through the courts and tribal claims for billions in compensation.

Commercial Litigation

Businesses find themselves cross-wise with regulators, customers, vendors, consultants and their own employees, sometimes even senior management, giving rise to the need for cost-efficient dispute resolution. Faster, cheaper, smarter is our mantra. Recently I defended a global telecommunications company against a multi-million dollar claim brought by a consultant and defended a local construction company against fire damage claims arising from construction of a waste heat plant located out of state.
