Jonathan D. Lupkin is a litigator and trial lawyer with almost 30 years of experience. His practice encompasses the full gamut of disputes arising in the business context, including claims of attorney malpractice and other professional liability, commercial banking, real estate, partnership break-ups, securities and financial derivatives.  Mr. Lupkin has tried complex jury and non-jury cases in state and federal court and has participated in  various forms of alternate dispute resolution procedures.  He also handles the defense of white-collar professionals, corporate executives and others in criminal and quasi-criminal investigations and prosecutions, as well as conducts internal investigations.

 A leader of the organized bar in New York, Mr. Lupkin has served as Chair of the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section of the New York State Bar Association, a position held by two federal judges, the general counsel of a major New York City performing arts institution and senior partners at some of the nation's largest law firms. Most recently, New York State Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman appointed Mr. Lupkin to the Commercial Division Advisory Council, a permanent body created by the Chief Judge to advise him on all matters, statewide, involving and surrounding the Commercial Division. Mr. Lupkin also serves as a member of the Advisory Committee for the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York in New York County.

Mr. Lupkin has lectured extensively on trial and appellate practice. He has served as an instructor for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and the New York State Bar Association's Commercial Litigation Academy and has served on numerous CLE panels, including: "The Trial of a Commercial Case: Successful Techniques and Tactics," "Trying Your First Non-Jury Case and Preserving Issues for Appeal: The Mechanics for Success," "CIVIL RICO: Legal Overview & Tactical Considerations," "Civil Appeals: Strategies and Process in the New York Court," "Recent Developments in Civil Practice: CPLR and Evidence," and "Trial of a Civil Case in Federal Court." In 2003 and again in 2008, Mr. Lupkin participated in presentations given to the Justices of the Commercial Division at the New York State Judicial Institute at Pace University.

Immediately after graduating from law school, Mr. Lupkin served as Law Clerk to the Honorable Edward R. Korman, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of New York.
