Jeremy E. Deutsch is a shareholder in Anderson Kill’s New York office and is Chair of the firm’s Corporate and Securities group. Jeremy has over 20 years’ experience in business law, including transactional and day to day legal counseling as well as complex corporate and commercial litigation and arbitration.
In 2018, Jeremy was selected as a member of Law360’s Banking editorial advisory board.
Jeremy’s corporate practice embraces all areas of corporate transactional and advisory roles. In transactional work, he has represented clients in mergers/acquisitions, sales/leases, employment agreements/terminations, and all manner of commercial transactions, including private investment deals, technology transactions, and private equity. In advisory work, he acts as general counsel to a number of different businesses and provides counsel and advice to established businesses and startups on corporate relationship creation and architecture; corporate governance, including disputes between partners and advising Boards of Directors; and day to day business issues.
In litigation, Jeremy has represented clients and tried cases to verdict and arbitrated matters to final award in matters involving large frauds, breaches of fiduciary duty, breaches of contract and joint venture agreements, complex financial instrument and securities litigation, real estate lending, shareholder derivative suits, stock option litigation, construction disputes, employment disputes, and violations of restrictive covenant agreements by employees. He has experience in cross-border litigation in the United States, Canada and in England, including matters involving securities fraud, trade secret theft, copyright and trademark infringement, commodities fraud, investment fraud, various types of financial fraud, employee theft of high-tech products, officer liability/mandatory indemnification issues, RICO claims, employment contracts and management buyout litigation. He has been lead trial counsel in United States Federal Courts, New York State courts, the state courts of other states, and private dispute resolution in the American Arbitration Association, FINRA, JAMS, and the International Chamber of Commerce International Court of Arbitration. Jeremy also has extensive federal and state court injunction experience.
Jeremy’s training as a trial lawyer gives him an unusual perspective on corporate matters, as he has seen and litigated the results of failed deals and ventures. He views corporate work as a form of centralized risk management, insofar as well-designed contracts on other corporate documents foster productive partnerships and can help prevent disputes and litigation.
