Fox Rothschild LLP issued the following announcement on April 17.
Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Brett A. Berman, who was featured in the 2019 edition of the coveted annual 40 Under 40 list by the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The list highlights current and future leaders across various industries in the region.
Berman, a partner in the firm’s Philadelphia office, has been successful in a number of precedent-setting commercial and business litigation matters as well as real estate, banking and construction disputes.
Over the past several years, Berman has developed a niche practice advocating for major market taxi companies who turn to him for assistance in protecting their financial interests and the livelihoods of their drivers against unregulated ride-sharing services. He has represented taxi and transportation providers in high-profile litigation around the country, including Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and New Orleans. Berman represents New York City cab drivers and taxi medallion groups in halting the congestion taxes that would implement additional passenger fees to ride-hailing businesses – the first of its kind in the country. He continues to play a leading role in shaping opposing arguments to the tax and has enabled taxi operators to stay on the streets in a time of large-scale market disruption.
In his banking practice, Berman represents national and community banks on a variety of matters and has personally handled more than two dozen multimillion-dollar foreclosure and confession of judgment litigations. He also frequently represents clients in multimillion-dollar cases related to shareholder disputes and construction litigation, including construction defects, violations of the Condominium Act and breaches of fiduciary duties by board members.
Berman is an active member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Philadelphia Bar Association. He serves as president of the Belgravia Condominium Association and vice president of the Rittenhouse Square Community Coalition – positions that enable him to advance community safety policies – and is a former legislative and government Fellow of the prestigious Eagleton Institute of Politics.
Berman is also a board member and vice president of access to the American Jewish Committee, where he works with government officials and leaders to combat anti-Semitism and extremism.
He earned his J.D., with honors, from Rutgers School of Law, his M.B.A., with high honors, from Rutgers University and his B.B.A., cum laude, from George Washington University
