Seth joins the firm after completing two judicial clerkships in Pennsylvania. Most recently, he finished a two-year clerkship with the Honorable Harvey Bartle III of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Seth was assigned to half of the criminal and civil matters in Judge Bartle’s chambers, including one of the nation’s largest multidistrict litigation. Before clerking for Judge Bartle, Seth clerked for the Honorable Abbe F. Fletman in the Civil Trial Division of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.
Seth has experience drafting virtually everything a trial court requires. He has written nearly one-hundred court opinions on motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, and various complex discovery disputes. These also include memorandum in support of Judge Fletman’s decisions before the Pennsylvania appellate courts. Seth’s writing has involved everything from constitutional and criminal issues to the resolution of complex commercial disputes. As a clerk, Seth took ownership over the progression of his cases, keeping abreast of their status and substance and attending every court conference to assist with the speedy resolution of discovery disputes and to draft the focused, easily digestible opinions characteristic of the judges for whom he clerked.
Seth started his legal career as a financial research analyst for a premier securities fraud litigation firm in New York, evaluating the quality of mortgage-backed securities to support federal securities fraud claims in connection with the subprime mortgage crisis. Then, Seth transitioned to a role as a commercial litigation paralegal at Greenberg Traurig, with a particular focus on contract and patent infringement actions against large pharmaceutical companies. During law school he worked as a Judicial Intern in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
He has a passion for pro bono service, having volunteered as an attorney for Philadelphia VIP and served on the Executive Committee for the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
