Lucas A. Markowitz, Associate
Lucas Markowitz helps individuals and businesses solve their most complex and consequential challenges. Equal parts tenacious, good-humored, and creative, clients come to Lucas for his astute legal and practical judgment and his consistent ability to obtain favorable results.
Lucas’ litigation practice covers a wide range of disputes, including real estate litigations, civil RICO cases, consumer fraud actions, securities matters, and partnership issues. Lucas’ employment practice is similarly diversified and covers matters from single plaintiff discrimination claims and trade secret and restrictive covenant cases to class and collective actions. He is also involved in significant employment law counseling work, providing guidance to clients in the area of employment law and regulation compliance.
Additionally, Lucas helps clients draft and negotiate business contracts; operating, joint venture, and partnership agreements; handbooks; and employment/independent contractor, noncompete, and separation agreements. His diverse practice is a virtuous circle – Lucas’ counseling work informs his litigation strategies and his litigation experience allows him to draft and negotiate better agreements.
