Nicholas J. Nastasi
As a partner in the Commercial Litigation Practice, Nick Nastasi focuses his practice on white collar criminal defense and commercial litigation matters. His practice includes handling complex commercial, business and civil litigation, including corporate director and officer liability and corporate governance matters relating to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
An experienced litigator in trial and appellate courts, Nick has represented officers, directors and employees of public corporations in connection with governmental investigations, including the IRS, the SEC and the U.S. Department of Justice. Such matters have led to disciplinary and prosecutorial proceedings, before state and federal agencies, commissions and courts.
Nick's recent and pending engagements include cases involving allegations of off-label promotion of pharmaceutical products, fraud, money laundering, tax, securities, banking, health care, insider trading, commercial bribery, RICO and antitrust law. He has represented clients in the banking and insurance, biotechnology/life sciences, and corporate transactional fields.
Prior to joining Saul Ewing, Nick was a partner with a boutique litigation firm in Philadelphia.
In addition to his legal practice, Nick is president of the Board of Directors for SpArc, an oversight board to the Arc of Philadelphia. Arc of Philadelphia was one of the first service providers in Philadelphia for people with intellectual disabilities.
