On the litigation side, Nick is regularly called upon to litigate expedited complex business and civil disputes for some of the world’s largest companies in state and federal courts around the country. Nick has effectively pursued and defended against temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions, successfully briefed and argued dispositive motions, and taken several matters to trial and through the appellate process. In one recent example, Nick successfully obtained the dismissal of a derivative complaint filed in New York state court and obtained an award of attorneys’ fees in defending against the action.
