概述

Evan Farber maintains a broad-based commercial litigation practice, with a focus on real estate. Known by clients for his thoughtful and fair approach as well as his passion for building and executing a cohesive strategy for each case, Evan handles all aspects of dispute resolution, including investigation, advocacy and strategic advice for his clients. 

He has extensive experience litigating claims related to the interpretation and enforcement of real estate-related contracts, real estate development litigation, commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, mortgage actions, title disputes, and other contentious real estate matters. One of Evan’s first, and most notable, cases involved insurance recovery litigation related to the World Trade Center site. 

He has also worked on a wide range of litigation matters in the financial services industry, including complex collections actions, indenture trustee work, lender liability cases, financial products litigation and insider trading investigations, among other matters. In addition, his practice encompasses insurance recovery litigation and complex contract disputes in a variety of industries. 

Evan also has a significant depth of experience in electronic discovery issues and has lectured and advised clients on related topics. 

Outside of work, Evan sits on the boards of the Anti-Defamation League, New York Region, and Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun. He is committed to his pro bono work representing a death row inmate in Alabama who was given the death penalty by a judge who overrode a jury’s original life imprisonment sentence.
