A partner in the Litigation Department, Geoffrey Chepiga represents clients in a variety of litigation and regulatory matters, including securities fraud cases, mergers and acquisitions litigation and DOJ and SEC investigations.
Geoff was recognized in the 2018 edition of The Legal 500 US as a Recommended Lawyer in the M&A Litigation: Defense and Securities Litigation: Defense categories.
Geoff also maintains a significant pro bono practice, a highlight of which is his representation of a class of individuals, including mentally disabled adults, residing in so-called adult homes in New York City. The class sued the state of New York, claiming that these homes violated the “integration mandate” of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). After ten years of litigation, the parties reached a landmark settlement to end the state’s decades-long discrimination.
Geoff is the co-author of “Ownership or Use? Civilian Property Interests in International Humanitarian Law,” which appeared in the 49th volume of Harvard International Law Journal in 2008.
