Biography

Richard M. Goldstein is a senior partner in Proskauer’s Litigation Department.

After graduating from New York University School of Law, he served as a law clerk for the Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Since that time, Richard’s litigation experience has encompassed a wide array of complex and celebrated matters, including litigations and class actions in a variety of industries and practice areas.

For example, Richard has extensive experience litigating intellectual property disputes, including false advertising, commercial defamation, deceptive practices, unfair competition and related business torts, as well as patent and copyright matters. Clients he has recently represented in such matters include Church & Dwight Co., Inc. and The New York Yankees.

Richard is also a member of Proskauer’s well-known Sports Law Group. He has significant and varied experience in the area of sports business and law, having handled high-profile matters ranging from sports and sponsorship marketing to stadium safety to the application of the Americans with Disabilities Act to professional sports leagues and facilities. Richard has been interviewed by the national media and has written and lectured on these topics. Among the clients he has represented in sports law matters are The New York Yankees, the National Hockey League, Texaco Inc., The Ladies Professional Golf Association and the ATP Tour.

Richard also has substantial experience in commercial real estate and construction related litigation, having represented such clients as Vornado Realty Trust, Credit Suisse and numerous other owners and developers. These matters typically have involved extremely complicated commercial relationships as well as extensive real estate holdings. In this regard, Richard has been invited to lecture on the litigation aspects of complex real estate transactions, including issues relating to the formation of binding agreements and damage limitation clauses.

Richard is the principal litigator in the firm’s Lodging & Gaming Group. He has counseled numerous operators and owners regarding strategic alternatives and has represented them in litigation and arbitration proceedings. Companies he has represented have included Meridien Hotels, Inc., The Pivotal Group and Swissôtel Management (USA) L.L.C.

In the securities field, Richard has represented high-profile clients, such as one of the major national accounting firms, in securities litigation matters. For example, he established important precedent in the First Circuit in the successful dismissal of a securities fraud class action complaint. He also has represented clients in contested proxy litigation and related shareholder suits.

A "lawyer’s lawyer," Richard’s practice has included representing attorneys in law firm dissolution cases. While most such matters have been settled favorably, Richard also has successfully tried such cases to judgment in his clients’ favor.

Education
JD
Class of 1974

Founded in 1835, New York University School of Law has a record of academic excellence and national scholarly influence. One of the first law schools to admit women, it has been long committed to welcoming students of diverse backgrounds, people who had been discriminated against by many other institutions. Located on the University's campus in Greenwich Village, NYU Law has been a leader, and continues to be, in areas such as law and business, clinical education, public service, interdisciplinary colloquia and global studies.

BA with High Distinction, Phi Beta Kappa
Class of 1970

Penn State is a multicampus public research university that educates students from Pennsylvania, the nation and the world, and improves the well being and health of individuals and communities through integrated programs of teaching, research, and service. Penn State, founded in 1855 as an agricultural college, admitted its first class in 1859. Today Penn State is one of four “state-related” universities (along with the University of Pittsburgh, Temple University, and Lincoln University), institutions that are not state-owned and -operated but that have the character of public universities and receive substantial state appropriations.

Note and Comments Editor

At the height of the political turmoil of the late 1960s, a group of activist students and professors at N.Y.U. School of Law came together and discussed the ways in which legal scholarship could respond to the injustices suffered by those relegated to society’s margins. These students and faculty felt that the dominant legal discourse found in countless law reviews failed to address sufficiently the gross inequities that existed (and continue to exist) along the lines of race, gender, class, sexuality, age, and ability. The response of these students and academics was to establish the N.Y.U. Review of Law & Social Change. As the foreword to the first issue states, Social Change was “created to provide an outlet for student scholarship and analysis in areas of the law of particular interest to socially concerned attorneys.” That first issue contained four student-written articles, the commitments of the authors reflected in their topics: ineffective assistance of counsel for the poor, tactics for squatters in abandoned New York City buildings, reformation of laws regarding retaliatory evictions, and the legality of maximum grant regulations for welfare recipients. As stated in the foreword to that first issue, the founding members of Social Change sought to “provide a forum for law students at New York University, and perhaps others, who are anxious to develop creative solutions through law to social problems.” Over the past thirty years, Social Change has remained true to that commitment, while growing in scope and stature. Originally an annual publication, Social Change now publishes four issues per year. In addition to publishing the work of N.Y.U. students, we also now publish articles by nationally-recognized scholars, legal practitioners, and activists.
