With Newman's reputation for defeating lawsuits unexpectedly early in the litigation process, often on novel legal grounds, clients unsurprisingly turn to him with their most challenging litigation. Clients often return for their non-litigation needs as well, seeking the same creativity and nuance as they navigate complex regulatory thickets or develop forward-looking compliance strategies. Newman Nahas focuses his practice on high-stakes contract, tort, intellectual property, securities and antitrust matters across various industries and numerous jurisdictions. He has handled all stages of the litigation process, including post-trial briefing and appeals. He also concentrates on the resolution of disputes outside of the litigation process and has counseled a variety of clients on a wide range of strategic, regulatory and compliance issues. Newman also maintains an active pro bono practice and is active in several international charities concerned with the plight of refugees. Newman graduated first in his class at the University of Florida and was awarded a Rhodes scholarship to study at Oxford University, where his master's research focused on the intersection of science, philosophy and religion. He then completed his J.D. at Harvard Law School, where he was also a teaching fellow.
