Ben joined Seeger Weiss in 2024 after over two decades with Dechert LLP where he was a leading litigation partner representing corporate defendants in a wide array of significant civil and criminal matters.
Ben is widely considered one of the nation’s experts in eDiscovery, pioneering many of the best practices now commonly deployed by companies facing multidistrict litigation, coordinated litigation in state courts, or parallel criminal and civil investigations in multiple jurisdictions.
While at Dechert, Ben was the driving force behind the creation of the firm’s eDiscovery Advisory Team which provided eDiscovery advice and support for the global Litigation Team and the Preferred Vendor Program which improved the quality of eDiscovery vendor services while reducing the associated costs for Dechert’s clients.
Ben held several leadership positions at Dechert, including chair of the Product Liability and Mass Tort group, co-chair of the Complex Commercial Litigation group, and co-chair of Dechert’s Innovation Task Force. Ben was also a member of the firm-wide Information Governance Steering Committee and for many years served on the firm’s Hiring Committee in Philadelphia.
Prior to joining Dechert, Ben served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. During law school, Ben worked on Capitol Hill for Representative Mo Udall and in the Transnational and Major Crimes Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.
