Erik G. Moskowitz
Erik specializes in civil trial law, including employment law, business law, and commercial litigation.
Erik represents businesses and individuals in all aspects of commercial litigation, including tort claims, employment actions, probate litigation, contract disputes, and intellectual property matters. Erik practices at all levels of the state and federal court systems and administrative agencies, from the lowest small claims court to the U.S. Supreme Court, from initial client meeting through trial and, if necessary, appeal.
Erik’s employment practice focuses on HR advising, policy drafting, and litigation. Erik holds a SHRM-CP certification and as the former Director of HR for a mid-size Austin law firm, he is uniquely qualified to advise employers both big and small on regulatory compliance and litigation avoidance techniques.
There’s no denying the fact that civil litigation is expensive and time-consuming. When businesses and individuals get caught up in litigation they don’t just need zealous representation, they need guidance and counseling to make sure they’re doing what’s most cost-effective and appropriate for their businesses and for their lives. Employers faced with employment litigation also need a representative who understands the business environment and their employees’ essential job functions. Erik works hard to get businesses and individuals out from litigation and back to their primary work as quickly as possible.
Erik is a New England transplant. He practiced litigation for six years at a medium-sized firm in New Hampshire representing small business, banks, and cities and towns.
Staying active is important to Erik. He doesn’t golf, but he’s always happy to take his clients rock climbing. He’s been climbing and instructing for over fifteen years.
Erik is also active in the legal community. He’s a member of DRI, the Defense Research Institute, and the Tufts University Lawyers Association. He taught undergraduate competitive mock trial at the University of New Hampshire and remains an active mock trial judge for regional competitions.
Erik has a Bachelor’s in English and Music from Tufts University where he wrote short fiction, conducted the Tufts Symphony Orchestra, and played classical trombone. He has a J.D. from the University of New Hampshire School of Law, where he also received his LL.M. in Intellectual Property, Commerce, and Technology. While in law school, Erik competed in national moot court and mock trial competitions.
