Lowenstein Sandler announced Thursday that it has added former Newark mayoral candidate and Seton Hall Law professor Shavar D. Jeffries as partner.
In the firm’s Litigation Department, Jeffries will represent clients in civil and criminal litigation. He will also continue to advocate on issues of public import.
Since 2004, Jeffries has been an associate professor of law at Seton Hall Law’s Center for Social Justice. From 2008 to 2010, Jeffries was an assistant attorney general and counsel to New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram.
“We are thrilled that Shavar Jeffries has chosen to join our firm,” Gary M. Wingens, Lowenstein Sandler’s chairman and managing partner, said in a prepared statement. “Shavar has earned an impeccable reputation for persistence in the face of the toughest obstacles, and for his ability to identify solutions to contentious problems — exactly what our clients require from their counselors. We know him to be an inspiring individual and remarkable attorney. He joins an exceptional litigation department and we look forward to his many valuable contributions as a partner with the firm.”
The firm has offices in Roseland; New York City; Palo Alto, California; and Washington, D.C.
