Edward Charles DeVivo

About Us

Mr. De Vivo has handled litigation and corporate matters across the United States and in Europe. He has served as the Lead Counsel in cases he has handled with great continuity from pre-trial through the conclusion of trial, and then successfully on appeal in the highest appellate state and federal circuit courts in the United States. He is widely published in international law and has been a member of the New York Bar for over 40 years.

After winning a Fencing Scholarship to New York University, Edward studied Philosophy and Linguistics, particular to the cross-over between these two subjects: Descartes' Theories of the Finite Body in the Infinite Mind, and the Acquisition of Language (Cartesian Linguistics). Winning All American Honors and being selected by then-President James H. Hester as NYU's candidate to The Rhodes Scholarship competition, Edward graduated New York University as the President of the original NYU Honor Society, "Perstare et Praestare," and then attended The University of Notre Dame Law School. At the very beginning of his law practice with a Wall Street law firm, he was assigned to the defense team in two different aviation disasters. While working, he also completed his Masters in Philosophy at NYU by attending evening courses and writing his Masters' Thesis.
