I approach every issue like it’s a house fire—I’ve got to quickly figure out how to help my clients escape from the burning building. With an ability to stay steady and calm, I’m able to immediately assess a situation and distill it down to its essence. I then collaborate creatively with those I serve to plot the best way to resolve a problem as efficiently as possible. It is extremely rewarding to improve their situation.
Len Trivigno advises a diverse client base in general commercial disputes, including claims for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, quantum meruit, trademark infringement, civil RICO violations, and commercial mortgage foreclosures.
Because Len has counseled clients on a wide variety of issues over the course of his career, he skillfully handles almost any type of litigation matter and rarely sees a problem that he hasn’t previously encountered and solved. Fully confident in his ability to zero in on the relevant issues, Len quickly identifies vulnerabilities that appear on both sides. Clients appreciate his keen intellect and sharp analytical talents.
As a strong advocate for both plaintiffs and defendants, Len litigates cases in state and federal courts primarily in New York, as well as in New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania and before organizations including the International Chamber of Commerce and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Len also negotiates and drafts a wide array of complex commercial documents including indentures and license, loan, and third-party vendor agreements.
In the bankruptcy space, Len has represented indenture trustees, investors holding claims against debtors arising from the issuance of residential mortgage-backed securities, and defendants in adversary proceedings, including former investors with Bernard Madoff in “claw-back” actions.
Len often uses his stellar writing skills to author client advisories and articles for the New York Law Journal, among other publications. He is a frequent presenter at Continuing Legal Education (CLE) events.
