WSHB recently added highly respected litigator and established trial attorney, Jared Levy, as a partner in the firm's growing professional liability, business litigation and commercial practices. Jared is admitted in NY, NJ and PA, and brings extensive experience with a wide range of professional lines matters, including cases against lawyers, doctors/healthcare workers, medi-spas, accountants, insurance agents, real estate agents, securities brokers, TPAs, property managers, and a wide range of other miscellaneous and specialty professionals. Jared joins WSHB shortly after the firm added two other well-known, heavy hitters in professional liability defense – Frances O'Meara and Ryan Deane in Los Angeles.
Jared will be assisting Michelle Arbitrio, Managing Partner of WSHB's White Plains, New York Office, with the management of professional liability matters throughout the northeast region. Michelle commented, "I am so thrilled that Jared has joined my team. I met Jared because we were attorneys for codefendant insurance agents and brokers, and I was able to observe Jared's litigation skills first hand. His reputation is well deserved as a top notch professional liability attorney and commercial litigator in NY, NJ and PA. I know he will be an asset to our practice and an outstanding resource for our associates. We are all looking forward to working with him."
In addition to his vast experience with errors and omissions (E&O) matters, Jared also has extensive experience defending directors and officers (D&O), typically associated with private companies and non-for-profit organizations, in litigated disputes. Jared also handles matters involving insurance coverage, bad faith and extra-contractual damages. Additionally, Jared represents clients in the aviation industry including aircraft ferrying, leasing and MRO facilities. Clients often seek his counsel in general corporate, indemnification, insurance and litigation matters.
Jared commented, “My first experience with WSHB was representing a co-defendant in a professional malpractice action. From that matter, I admired the professionalism, skill and collative process used by the WSHB attorneys which yielded a fantastic result for their client. I am happy to be part of this collaborative process and share this high level of experience with my clients."
Jared obtained his J.D. from Rutgers School of Law and his Bachelor of Science from the University of Pittsburgh. He is admitted to practice law in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
