Jeffrey J. Bushofsky

With 20 years of experience, Jeff is an accomplished trial lawyer who represents private equity firms and their portfolio companies in complex transactional litigation, health care disputes, and securities cases. Jeff has taken national consumer fraud class actions to trial, litigated multi-district actions in the health care and securities areas, and led cases involving technology, professional malpractice, sports and entertainment law, and white collar crime. Drawing from his litigation experience, Jeff leads internal investigations of portfolio companies for private equity clients to assess and minimize risk to fund managers and their investors. He also advises on deals for private equity clients regarding litigation risk and due diligence, as well as the negotiation and drafting of terms bearing on post-closing disputes.

Jeff is committed to pro bono work. In early 2014, he led a pro bono team in the first civil rights case under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Jeff also handles fraud and family law matters for indigent and disabled individuals, as well as asylum cases.
