Entrepreneurship With Purpose
When a school dares you to “Challenge Convention. Change Our World.” you can expect to find a community of innovators and leaders. So, few people were surprised to find Clark University ranked one of the top 20 entrepreneurial universities in 2014 by Forbes, due to its large proportion of alumni and students who are founders or owners.
“The Clark University culture sparks so many entrepreneurial endeavors because it attracts people whose impulse is to act on their desire to make a difference, rather than just talking about it,” explains Catherine Usoff, Ph.D., dean, Graduate School of Management (GSOM).
Competent, Confident and Connected
Rarely does one find a business school so devoted to helping its students define and carry out their career aspirations.
“We call it our ‘Career Ready’ focus,” says Martin Roth, dean of the University of Hartford’s Barney School of Business. “We make a determined commitment that when students graduate, they are going to be competent, confident and connected.” …Read More

Business Lawyers Who
Practice Outside the Box
When an air cargo company sued a repair station, alleging a negligent installation of cargo doors, and the case was tried twice and reversed twice on appeal, the defendant turned to the law firm of Levitt LLP to take a fresh look, as co-lead counsel for the third trial. At issue was whether the alleged product defect had caused the plaintiff to go out of business, because the FAA grounded two of its planes. The defendant faced $1 billion in exposure.
A unanimous jury found for Levitt LLP’s client, and the verdict was affirmed on appeal. After three trials, the case was over.
“The case was complex, but we proved the alleged product defect was a smokescreen,” explains attorney Steven L. Levitt, founder and principal of Levitt LLP. “The plaintiff’s financial problems had nothing to do with our client. In SEC filings and internal documents, it discussed all sorts of other, smaller issues affecting the company financially, but what it argued was the most important thing that drove it out of business and ‘forced’ it to merge with another carrier – the grounding – didn’t appear at all.”
Every business faces unique legal challenges, and outcomes will always vary. Regardless of circumstances, Levitt LLP (formerly Steven L. Levitt & Associates, P.C.) approaches each case aggressively, with the goal of achieving a positive solution for the client, often using an unexpected strategy.
“A lot of lawyers are boxed in by what their clients tell them,” Levitt explains. “They will say, ‘Based on what you have told me, here are the possibilities.’ We’re different. We look for details the client might not have told us, but based on our experience, are likely to be there. We answer questions our clients don’t think to ask.”
A Personal Approach to Business
When it comes to business litigation, business transactions and commercial real estate, Levitt LLP offers large-firm capabilities with small-firm flexibility. More than a lawyer, Levitt also has a background in business and accounting, enabling him to offer creative solutions to business problems. He and approximately half of his team have achieved the status of Super Lawyer®.
Through the years, Levitt LLP has successfully gone head-to-head against some of the most powerful law firms in the U.S. Clients have included businesses of all sizes, from sole proprietorships and medical practices to Fortune 100 companies. Other law firms often seek advice from Levitt LLP.
Levitt’s business background was useful in a case involving a disputed purchase price for a corporate acquisition. Levitt saw through the other side’s manipulation of numbers to show sales they claimed were fictitious, and at best consignments. Levitt proved the company’s value was inflated, saving his client tens of millions of dollars.
For a law firm that’s all about business, Levitt LLP’s approach is surprisingly personal.
“We believe we provide the greatest value by learning as much as possible about a client’s business,” Levitt says. “We will walk through your factory or spend time talking with your staff to learn your business. We love exceeding our clients’ expectations and giving them a result they didn’t think was possible.”
