Gregory M. Dexter Of Counsel
Greg focuses on complex, real-estate, and commercial litigation. He also serves as an outside general counsel to businesses, advising them on various legal issues, including laws relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the CARES Act and its Paycheck Protection Program. He was co-counsel of record in Manning v. Merrill Lynch, in which the United States Supreme Court ruled unanimously in his clients’ favor. Prior to the grant of certiorari, Greg was the primary brief writer in the U.S. Supreme Court and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Those underlying motions, made by several of the country’s largest financial institutions, were resolved entirely in favor of Greg’s clients.
In 2018 and 2019, Greg secured reimbursement of substantial attorneys’ fees under contractual fee-shifting provisions; reimbursement of attorneys’ fees as frivolous-litigation sanctions; multiple post-judgment awards enforcing his clients’ judgments and court orders; spoliation sanctions against litigants who destroyed evidence, including an adverse-inference charge that promptly resolved his client’s case favorably; significant insurance coverage settlements; and favorable summary-judgment decisions, including a decision that clarifies the scope of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act in real-estate transactions.
A 2009 graduate of Tulane University, cum laude, and from Temple University School of Law, cum laude, in 2012, Greg was a member of the Temple Law Review and has been published in multiple law reviews.
While in law school, Greg was a judicial intern for the Honorable Petrese B. Tucker, U.S.D.J. (E.D.P.A.), the Honorable Susan D. Wigenton, U.S.D.J. (D.N.J.), and the Honorable Peter E. Doyne, A.J.S.C. (N.J. Sup.).
Upon graduation, he was awarded the Terrence H. Klasky Memorial Award for being the outstanding graduate in banking, negotiable instruments, and consumer protection.
