Ted Semaya Joins Offit Kurman in New York City


For Immediate Release

New York, NY | March 14, 2018 Offit Kurman is pleased to announce today that Ted Semaya has joined the firm’s office in New York City, as a principal-level attorney. Mr. Semaya is one of seven lawyers to affiliate their practices with Offit Kurman in New York City over the past month, swiftly reshaping the firm’s presence in the region. Mr. Semaya and his colleagues bring to the firm extensive experience in international and domestic commercial litigation, intellectual property, and business law and transactions.


Ted Semaya has been helping clients outside of and in the United States to successfully avoid or to resolve international and complex commercial disputes for over 30 years. He has broad experience representing and counseling clients in complex and international litigation in federal and state courts, international and domestic arbitration and mediation in business, commercial, corporate, securities, maritime, professional liability, insurance, and trust and estate disputes with particular experience conducting multi-party, multi-jurisdictional cases coordinating teams of lawyers in different countries. Mr. Semaya also assists in managing legal risk in international transactions and multinational group structure and operations, defends governmental investigations, and has conducted confidential internal corporate investigations.


Aside from his client-facing legal practice, Mr. Semaya organizes continuing legal education programs on international and commercial litigation and arbitration for bar association and other groups, and is a frequent speaker before attorneys admitted in United States and many other country jurisdictions. On numerous occasions, he has represented the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section in meetings between foreign judicial delegations—who look to New York’s Commercial Division as a model for the creation of commercial courts in their respective countries—and the Justices and officers of the Division. In 2014, he was an expert advisor for the US Department of Commerce Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) Workshop on International Transactions in Tbilisi, Georgia.


In July 2006, the first New York edition of Super Lawyers identified Mr. Semaya as one of New York’s “Super Lawyers” in the area of business litigation. He was so renamed in successive years through 2010 and again each year from 2013–17.
