Amber’s cases include a multitude of “bet the company” litigation spanning a diverse collection of legal subject matters, including complex financial products, licensing agreements, trade secret misappropriation, antitrust violations, employment disputes, civil rights cases, real estate purchasing agreements, computer software implementations, and consumer fraud.She represents a wide array of clients including financial institutions, real estate firms, global corporations, utility companies, and regional businesses. Amber’s clients are from “both sides of the aisle,” and she is equally proficient in developing strategies to address the unique needs of both plaintiffs and defendants.
Among other matters, Amber won dismissal at trial of a putative purchaser’s claim for a $30 million piece of property in Brooklyn, enabling her client, a Brooklyn-based real estate investment firm, to successfully close on its purchase of the property. In a New York state action, she won summary judgment awarding her client, an investment banking firm, the entirety of a multi-million dollar tail fee. In her representation of a local manufacturer in a complex trade secret litigation in the United States District Court in the Southern District of New York, Amber successfully obtained full dismissal of claims for false advertising and false designation of origin under the Lanham Act, as well as all state law claims relating to deceptive business practices and intentional interference with business relations.
In her appellate practice, Amber successfully persuaded the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the New York Court of Appeals that a federal jury was improperly instructed to award a speculative measure of damages that is not cognizable under New York law, voiding the judgment in the underlying action.
