David J. Lender is Co-Chair of Weil’s global Litigation Department and has more than 25 years of experience trying and litigating complex international commercial disputes in state and federal courts around the country, as well as in arbitration proceedings.

Mr. Lender’s multi-disciplinary practice encompasses matters involving RICO, patent, antitrust, consumer fraud, and contracts issues, among others, including in the class action context. He has tried numerous cases to verdict – many of which have resulted in his clients obtaining, or avoiding, hundreds of millions of dollars in damages. His longstanding clients include General Electric, Credit Suisse, ExxonMobil, Dow Chemical, Nuance Communications, WL Ross, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and eBay.

Mr. Lender is a recognized expert, author and frequent lecturer on electronic discovery issues.

He is regularly recognized as a preeminent trial lawyer and litigator by leading industry publications. In 2018, Chambers USA again recognized him as among the top commercial litigators in New York. Clients in Chambers highlight his “keen intellect” and ability to “think through the evidence and trial strategy with clarity and efficiency,” and remark that he “consistently delivers winning results at extremely efficient cost.” Mr. Lender also was recognized in the 2018 edition of Benchmark Litigation as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America, and in the 2018 edition of BTI Consulting’s law firm industry report as a Client Service All-Star. In 2017, Legal 500 again named him among the leading trial lawyers nationwide.

Mr. Lender is on the Executive Board of New York Lawyers for the Public Interest and recently won a jury verdict in the Southern District of New York for a prisoner in a §1983 lawsuit.
