Profile

Calvin is a seasoned advocate and counselor whose practice includes complex commercial and employment litigation; and government investigations and compliance. Calvin has a meticulous approach to handling his clients' matters that focuses heavily on their business or personal objectives to determine the most effective course of action during the pre-litigation and litigation stages.

Calvin is passionate about his clients, getting to know their businesses from the back office to the C-suite. When matters cannot be resolved, Calvin brings to bear over two decades of trial and litigation experience before numerous state and federal courts, arbitrations, and administrative agencies.

Calvin's commercial litigation practice includes the representation of publicly traded companies, middle market and closely held businesses, financial services firms, and individuals in complex business and civil disputes. His representative matters include the prosecution and defense of a wide range of actions including contract disputes, business torts, unfair trade practices, trade secrets, breaches of fiduciary duty, environmental claims, and fraudulent conveyances. Calvin has significant experience litigating disputes focused on defending and protecting clients on claims of trade secret misappropriation in numerous areas, including the financial services, health services, waste management, and publishing industries. Calvin's employment practice includes representing businesses on claims of discrimination and wrongful discharge, and violations of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements.

Calvin also represents institutional and individual clients in responding to and defending against federal, state, and administrative governmental investigations and prosecutions. His representative matters include financial crimes and fraud (including banking, health care, mail, wire, investor, securities, antitrust, insurance, tax, bankruptcy, and credit card), criminal diversion, public corruption, and environmental crimes. Calvin's practice includes representing health care providers and practitioners in criminal and administrative licensing proceedings. Prior to entering private practice, Calvin served as an assistant district attorney for the Office of the District Attorney, Bronx County, in the Economic Crimes Bureau of its Investigations Division.
