Thomas Kamvosoulis, Counsel
When clients are forced into litigation, they are faced with several questions. What are the potential outcomes? How long will it take? What are the risks? What will it cost? For nearly 15 years, Thomas Kamvosoulis has successfully guided clients through this process and helped them achieve cost-efficient, pragmatic solutions to a wide array of legal problems.
Tom’s primary area of practice is complex corporate litigation, where he represents closely held companies in a broad range of matters including shareholder divorces, partnership dissolutions, minority oppression cases, restrictive covenant enforcement, trade secrets, securities fraud, and an assortment of contract disputes. Tom strongly believes that to succeed in litigation, an attorney must gain a comprehensive understanding of the client’s goals and develop a long-term strategy that will keep a step ahead of the opposition.
In addition to his litigation practice, Tom also counsels clients on a variety of employment issues, including claims of discrimination, harassment, whistle-blowing, and compliance with state and federal wage and hour laws. In these matters, Tom focuses on helping clients develop and implement policies that will limit their exposure and minimize litigation risk in a practical and cost-effective manner.
Tom also represents clients in a variety of class action cases. On multiple occasions, he has successfully defended clients in national and statewide consumer fraud class actions, defeating class certification and/or obtaining dismissal in every case. In addition, Tom has successfully represented class action plaintiffs in wage and hour litigation. Having managed class action cases on both sides of the aisle, he has a keen understanding of how to navigate the unique procedural issues facing plaintiffs and defendants, how to expose the other party’s weaknesses and, in turn, how to implement a winning strategy for his clients.
During law school, Tom was a member, staff writer, and associate editor of the Villanova Law Review, and was appointed member of the Order of the Coif as a result of his outstanding academic achievement. In addition, he served as an extern to the Hon. Marjorie O. Rendell of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Tom was named a “Rising Star” by New Jersey Super Lawyers in 2017.
