Shapiro’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, including disputes concerning the licensing and implementation of system-wide software systems, partnership law, hedge fund litigation, bankruptcy litigation, lender liability, securities, and corporate governance. He has represented corporations, partnerships, trustees, investment firms, and individuals in litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country and before arbitration panels.
