Philippe Lieberman is a founding shareholder of the firm with over twenty five years of experience representing domestic and international companies, real estate developers and investors, and entrepreneurs in complex business disputes. His financial experience and background gives him a strategic advantage over many of his adversaries, which allows him to quickly grasp the broader and complex financial issues, identify leverage, assess risk, and develop creative strategies to often exceed his clients’ expectations and goals.
In his practice, Philippe represents clients in a broad array of commercial and business matters, including real estate and development disputes, joint venture matters, shareholder, partnership and membership disputes, derivative actions, financial fraud, fiduciary obligations, foreclosures, commercial evictions, trade secrets and covenants not to compete. Philippe is frequently hired for post-acquisition disputes involving breaches of representations and warranties and earn-out disagreements, where he brings a sophisticated level of understanding of how transactions are consummated to reach a favorable outcome for his clients.
Philippe understands the toll that litigation can take on clients, so he works closely with them to consider the strategies that are best suited for them in the short and long term.
Born in Europe and fluent in French, Philippe has a diverse local and foreign clientele, frequently appearing in State and Federal Courts throughout the United States, and in arbitrations before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), ICC International Court of Arbitration, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
In his spare time, Philippe is an avid European football (soccer) fan and mountain biker.
