Jared Levine is a counsel in the Litigation Group at Crowell & Moring's New York office.

Jared's practice focuses on complex litigation at both the trial and appellate levels, with an emphasis on commercial disputes arising from financial transactions, post-closing merger and asset sale disputes, business torts, shareholder litigation, consumer class actions, product liability claims, and white collar civil defense.

Jared appears regularly in state and federal trial courts, as well as commercial arbitrations, where he represents clients from a broad range of industries, including private equity firms, automotive manufacturers, health insurers, financial institutions, commodity and securities trading companies, and software developers.

Jared also devotes a substantial portion of his practice to pro bono litigation and has represented dozens of individuals in immigration proceedings, employment disputes, criminal appeals, and landlord-tenant litigation. Between 2013 and 2018, Jared received six consecutive Pro Bono Publico Awards from the New York Legal Aid Society. In 2017, he argued a successful appeal before the Third Circuit and obtained reversal of a deportation order on behalf of an illiterate, bisexual, Muslim man who fled violent persecution in his native Guyana. In 2018, he obtained a voluntary remand from the Department of Justice in an appeal before the 11th Circuit on behalf of a Kenyan asylum seeker whose family had been repeatedly targeted by a violent criminal gang.

Jared graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers School of Law in 2010, where he was class valedictorian and the recipient of the Saul Tischler Memorial Award, the Harry A. Moore Prize, and the Rutgers Outstanding Scholastic Achievement Award for International Law. While in law school, Jared was elected co-chair of the Rutgers Moot Court Board while also serving as a judicial intern to the Honorable Dickinson R. Debevoise, U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and the Honorable Delissa Ridgway, U.S. Court of International Trade.
