SHORT HILLS, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spiro LLC announced today that Jeffrey Shooman has joined the firm as counsel in the Short Hills, NJ office. A seasoned litigator, Shooman has handled dozens of matters at the trial and appellate levels of state and federal courts.
Shooman will serve as a leader of Spiro LLC’s Appellate practice. He has handled a variety of complex litigation matters, ranging from garden-variety breach of contract disputes to complex patent and antitrust cases, and has represented clients before the Supreme Court of New Jersey, the Appellate Division of New Jersey Superior Court, and the United States Courts of Appeals for the Second and Third Circuits. In 2015, he was named a “Rising Star” by New Jersey Monthly Magazine for his appellate work.
“I couldn’t be more excited to lead the Appellate practice at Spiro LLC,” said Shooman. “The firm has a clear commitment to innovative thinking, and I look forward to bringing my litigation expertise to help meet our clients’ unique business needs.”
“Jeff is the perfect addition to our growing firm,” added Jason Spiro, founder of Spiro LLC. “I’ve worked with him for a number of years, and he has the distinct experience and skills required to establish our firm as the leading appellate practice in New Jersey.”
Throughout his career, Shooman’s breadth of experience includes obtaining affirmance of a judgment in favor of a New Jersey blended charter school that uses innovative online technology in the classroom; obtaining affirmance of a judgment in favor of a New Jersey city’s rent leveling and stabilization board in a high-profile rent control matter; and obtaining a full reversal of a client’s criminal convictions, after which the client was acquitted at his retrial.
Prior to joining Spiro LLC, Shooman worked at Cahill Gordon & Reindel, as well as at a premiere litigation firm with Spiro LLC founder Jason Spiro on matters involving complex civil litigation. He is a former law clerk to the Hon. Esther Salas of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
Spiro LLC is a litigation boutique founded earlier this year by Jason Spiro, a litigator who previously worked at some of the nation’s premiere law firms in civil litigation, arbitration, and internal investigations. While the firm practices in jurisdictions across the country, it is at heart a New Jersey-based firm, committed to bringing a top litigation practice to corporations and individuals throughout the region.
