Theodore M. Grossman

Called one of "the nation's top litigators" by The National Law Journal and many other publications, Ted Grossman is a trial and appellate lawyer with an unbroken record of victories spanning decades. His practice is nationwide and based in New York.

Ted's practice covers a wide range: class actions (in which he successfully defended the largest commercial class action in U.S. history); commercial litigation (in which he is regularly named a top U.S. lawyer by a wide range of publications); and product liability (in which Japan's Nikkei newspapers called him "the top product liability lawyer in the United States). He also represents corporate plaintiffs, on whose behalf he, with his teams, have obtained recoveries of hundreds of millions of dollars. In a recent two-month trial closely covered by the national press and cable, Ted obtained an injunction against Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and a judgment for tortious interference against J.C. Penney for its efforts to break Macy's contractual exclusivity for Martha Stewart home goods. For many years, Ted served as R.J. Reynolds' lead outside counsel, helping guide it through successive waves of mass individual and novel aggregated litigation. In regulatory and constitutional litigation, he has served as lead counsel in cases brought by or against virtually every federal department. He regularly advises boards, CEOs, and general counsel of leading clients. [1]
