In so doing, Jeremy has adeptly litigated and negotiated disputes for a wide range of clients including Fortune 500 corporations, mid-sized and small businesses which span across industries, including a variety of hospitality businesses, professional services offices, property owners and developers, commercial tenants and landlords, condo associations, contractors, and disenfranchised individuals. Clients take comfort in knowing that Jeremy has shown no fear in taking a “tough case” through trial.
