Gil Feder

Gil is the Chair of Reed Smith’s U.S. Real Estate Litigation Group.

While he litigates all types of commercial cases, Gil specializes in commercial real estate matters. Gil has extensive experience in representing a wide array of New York property owners and developers in complex commercial, partnership, and joint venture disputes. He has successfully handled significant real estate disputes for Sears, Fortress, BNY Mellon, Capmark Bank, GE, W.P. Carey, Lockheed Martin, UPS, and Norsk Hydro. He has litigated highly publicized real property, mortgage, environmental, zoning, condemnation and commercial lease disputes.

Gil has extensive trial and appellate experience and routinely litigates high-profile matters in both the New York State and the Federal Court systems. He has also arbitrated and mediated disputes before the American Arbitration Association and JAMS. His client base includes some of Manhattan’s well known real estate developers including Donald Trump, as well as celebrities including Iron Chef Morimoto.

Gil’s appellate practice has included many appeals at the New York Court of Appeals and at the New York Appellate Divisions. His most recent successful appeal at the New York Court of Appeals on behalf of The Dreyfus Corporation resulted in a landmark decision regarding the doctrine of employment at will.

Gil often represents clients in employment disputes and restrictive covenant litigations. He has also litigated election challenges for several religious and charitable institutions.

As part of Reed Smith’s securities litigation team, Gil routinely handles litigation matters on behalf of some of the world’s premier hedge funds and private equity funds. He has also successfully handled lawsuits on behalf of investors in hedge funds.
