Areas of PracticeLitigation
DescriptionSeth Lapidow is a commercial litigator who represents both public companies and private organizations. He handles cases involving contract disputes, antitrust claims, securities fraud, partnership disputes, mergers and acquisitions, First Amendment and the media, advertising claims, and donor intent.Areas of FocusHaving practiced as both in-house and outside counsel, Seth brings a unique perspective to his clients. As a former in-house litigator, he understands the difficulties of managing costs while making sure that the best outcome is achieved in the shortest period of time. Seth prides himself on finding the most efficient and expeditious way to achieve the best result. Nobody enjoys litigation, especially busy business people, and he and his team are dedicated to minimizing the impact of litigation on management’s time and attention while maximizing the result. When they are on the plaintiff’s side, that means getting the company the most money he can in the shortest time. When defending, our goal is to narrow the issues to the point where the battle is fought on the most advantageous ground possible – before trial. In short, our goal is to make sure that the client gets the best litigation outcome with the least distraction. Unlike most ‘big firm’ lawyers, he is as comfortable vindicating a client’s rights as a plaintiff as defending them when sued.Over the past 30 years, Seth has worked extensively with entertainment and media companies making sure that litigation does not disrupt their ability to put content on the air. On the donor intent side, he has worked to ensure that large institutions do not forget to honor the promises made to donors and make them pay when they do.With respect to Heartland Payment Systems, for which we are regular litigation counsel, Seth prosecuted a novel antitrust claim that insured payment processors access to the most popular POS systems in the restaurant industry, which substantially broadened HPS’ access to a critical market.One of Seth’s notable cases-the landmarkRobertson v. Princeton-is the subject of the bookAbusing Donor Intent: The Robertson Family’s Epic Lawsuit Against Princeton University(Paragon House, 2014) authored by Doug White.Robertson v.
