Jeffrey M. Eilender has been a commercial litigator for over twenty years. 
Jeffrey M Eilender
Although he has litigated virtually every kind of business conflict, his practice focuses on "business divorce" — intra-corporate disputes over intellectual property, real estate and other assets, trade secrets, and disputes relating to business separations involving, for example, operating, shareholder, non-compete and severance agreements.  Mr. Eilender also litigates real estate, contract and employment cases, and all manner of business torts.  In addition to representing large public companies, such as AXA, Verizon, AOL, XL, and Canon,
private companies, and high net worth individuals, he has represented such media personalities as Judith Regan, Perez Hilton, and a well-known television film critic whose identity was sealed by the court.  Mr. Eilender has also represented clients in criminal and civil proceedings and investigations by government and regulatory agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, FINRA, and the New York State Attorney General's Office.  He has been lead counsel in successful trials and hearings in the Commercial Divisions of New York's state courts, a variety of arbitral forums, and in other federal and state courts around the country.  He has been chosen as a speaker and panelist at the 2014 New York State Bar Association Commercial Litigation Academy.
