Catherine Savio is an associate in the Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. She represents a wide range of clients from individuals to national and international companies in federal and state courts, arbitrations, mediations, and administrative hearings.
I litigate a vast array of commercial disputes and white-collar matters pertaining to financial services, securities, hedge funds, partnerships, real estate, intellectual property, construction, government contracts, and entertainment. I develop and implement litigation, discovery, settlement, arbitration, and mediation strategies, prepare witnesses and parties for depositions and arbitration testimony, take and defend depositions of witnesses and parties, and negotiate complex commercial settlements. I am involved in hearings, ex parte matters, and matters involving post-judgment relief. I also draft motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, motions for emergent relief, and various discovery motions. I have significant oral advocacy experience and have appeared as lead counsel at trial and second chaired multiple trials before arbitration and mediation tribunals.
I am focusing on alternative dispute resolution and other means to guide clients through litigation in a most cost-effective manner. I am also following developments in intellectual property law as companies rely more on social media as a manner of communicating with clients and colleagues.
Before joining NP, I worked as a litigator at another firm for four years, and as a Dean Acheson Stagiaire at the General Court of the European Union where I conducted legal research and drafted memoranda in a variety of areas of European law in both French and English.
I was a judicial extern to the Honorable Jerome St. John, Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division. Additionally, I served as a law clerk at an Atlantic City-based law firm.
I was a member of the Seton Hall Legislative Journal staff. I also volunteered for the Seton Hall Law Civil Practice and Litigation Clinic, where I handled a variety of litigation matters, primarily focusing on assisting low-income clients who were victims of mortgage fraud scams.
