Jeremy Heisler is the Managing Partner of the New York Office and a Founding Partner of Sanford Heisler, LLP, a national law firm with offices in Washington, D.C., New York, and California. He received his law degree, magna cum laude, from Brooklyn Law School in 1979.
Throughout his more than thirty year legal career, Mr. Heisler has had notable success in class actions and complex multi-party and multi-state litigation, producing more than $200 million in benefits to class members. Mr. Heisler has established leading employment-law precedents, including the expansion of the rights of wrongfully discharged employees. He also has prevailed in novel and groundbreaking litigation against some of the largest companies in the nation.
Mr. Heisler's most recent victory came in In Re Novartis Wage and Hour Litigation. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that sales representatives employed by pharmaceutical giant Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation were entitled to overtime pay under Federal, New York and California law. The U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari and let the decision stand. This ruling has wide implications for the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, and for wage and hour overtime litigation in general.
Mr. Heisler's successes have been as consistent as they are varied. He tried to verdict a police brutality case and won a judgment of nearly $500,000. He also prosecuted many significant class actions, including a case against G.E. Capital with a $19.2 million settlement (consumers overcharged with illegal fees), and a case against a major leasing company with a $15 million settlement (consumers defrauded).
*****
Mr. Heisler served as an appellate law clerk for a major Appellate Court in New York State, where he drafted bench memoranda and judicial opinions for the justices on appeals ranging from constitutional law actions and criminal prosecutions to multi-million dollar real estate litigation.
