With nearly three decades of law practice, Mr. Singer is admitted to appear before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and in California.

He represents high-profile clients including Wall Street traders, investment bankers, hedge fund executives, wealth managers and wholesalers, as well as artists and other influential people.

Mr. Singer has a proven track record for efficiently helping employees in their fight against former/current employers on matters related to sexual abuse, slander/libel, U-5 defamation and compensation denial.

He was a former mediator at the Los Angeles Superior Court and the Commercial Division of the New York Supreme Court, and an arbitrator of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
