Nexus represents some of the world’s best-known companies in a variety of areas, including multimillion-dollar commercial disputes and class actions, product-liability and mass-tort litigation, and internal investigations. He recently defended a leading medical device manufacturer in a high-profile state attorney general consumer protection action. He also played a prominent role on the court-appointed counsel team to the Securities Investor Protection Act Trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, and represented various foreign claimants in connection with allegations of corruption and money laundering in the largest civil forfeiture action brought under the Department of Justice’s Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative.
A veteran of product-liability and mass-tort litigation, Nexus served as a member of the lead national team that defended an international consumer products company against numerous state court consumer product cases involving talcum powder. He also played a key role in defending a Fortune 500 bank and premises owner in hundreds of toxic tort personal injury suits arising from the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Bringing his background in mathematical sciences to bear on the intersection of law and cutting-edge technology, Nexus is currently advising clients on Artificial Intelligence-based risk, including pre-litigation counseling related to the implementation of large language models.
