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 get results.
Lucas is a first chair trial lawyer whose litigation practice covers a wide range of disputes, including real estate litigations, civil RICO cases, consumer fraud actions, securities matters and partnership issues. Lucas also has experience with consumer and commercial financial services cases and disputes involving wealth management and hedge funds. His 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. Lucas is comfortable on both sides of the aisle. He has secured substantial monetary verdicts for clients in business disputes and has won defense verdicts in jury trials.
When Lucas is not in the courtroom, he 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, achieving positive business outcome in the process.
Prior to joining Offit Kurman, Lucas was an Associate at a well-known New Jersey law firm. Before that, Lucas was in-house counsel at a technology start-up company and served as an associate in the Labor and Employment department of an Am Law 100 firm.
