Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

Gary Yeung focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, arbitration, and government investigations. He represents major corporations and financial institutions in federal and state courts, and before arbitral tribunals and government agencies such as the SEC and the DOJ. He has experience with a broad range of commercial disputes, including those involving breach of contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and business torts, as well as bankruptcy-related disputes.

A New York City native, Gary prides himself on taking a no-nonsense approach to problem-solving. When disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation, Gary makes full use of every tool in the litigator's arsenal to deliver wins for his clients.

Gary has experience handling every stage of litigation, from the initial drafting of pleadings through fact and expert discovery, summary judgment, trial, and appeals, as well as helping guide clients through mediation and settlement negotiations. He has represented U.S.-based and international clients in a variety of industry sectors, including banking and finance, retail, telecommunications, energy, health care, technology, travel and hospitality, pharmaceuticals, and professional services.

Gary is committed to advancing the public good and maintains a robust pro bono practice, representing individuals and nonprofit organizations in matters involving asylum and immigration status, human trafficking, housing discrimination, tenants' rights, and gender equality.

While at Cornell Law School, Gary served as a Managing Editor on the Cornell International Law Journal and President of the American Constitution Society. He was a summer intern at the Kings County District Attorney's Office in 2013, where he assisted in prosecuting misdemeanor and felony cases, and a summer associate at Hogan Lovells in 2014.
