Nicholas Kravitz represents individual and corporate clients in matters involving professional liability, commercial and contractual disputes, catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice, and litigation related to the exploration, production, gathering and transportation of Marcellus natural gas. Nick advocates for his clients in federal and state trial courts, and in appeals before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the Commonwealth and Superior Courts of Pennsylvania, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the American Arbitration Association.
Nick’s successful and diverse litigation record is a testament to his dedication to his clients and his capacity to immerse himself in each unique case. Together with MBK partner, Frank Brier, he has successfully represented hospitals and individual medical practitioners at trial, including before the Pennsylvania Superior Court, in complex medical negligence liability and malpractice cases. He was instrumental in the dismissal of substantial theft charges brought by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the misappropriation of $500,000, affirmed by the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. Nick and Jack Dempsey together represented a gathering and processing energy client to obtain a partial summary judgment precluding a natural gas pipeline construction contractor from pursuing change order claims exceeding $20 million related to adverse weather in the Marcellus shale region.
