Yosef joined the firm after spending four years at Debevoise & Plimpton and another four years at O’Melveny & Myers, where he was promoted to counsel. While at these firms, he represented major financial institutions and insurance companies in high-stakes litigations and internal investigations. At these firms, he won his first trial, drafted winning briefs, argued before various state and federal trial and appellate courts, and shepherded clients through investigations brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, the New York Attorney General’s Office, and the SEC. Yosef also acted as lead plaintiff’s counsel in two pro bono cases involving a 9/11 widow’s right to compensation and the rights of prisoner to practice his religion under the First Amendment and federal law.

Here at MSE, Yosef has developed expertise in commercial disputes, real estate litigation, and professional liability claims against national law firms. Yosef has drafted briefs, at both the trial court and appellate levels, resulting in the dismissal of multi-million dollar claims against MSE’s clients; has taken and defended critical depositions; and has spearheaded successful negotiations resulting in very favorable settlements for our clients.

Yosef graduated from Columbia Law School in 2000, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and was named Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Law and Social Problems. Before law school, Yosef attended Yeshiva University where he majored in Economics.
