Derek Zisser has over a decade of experience litigating high exposure construction, premises liability, commercial, products liability, environmental, professional liability, insurance coverage as well as trucking and transportation cases. He serves on MGC’s Trucking Rapid Response Team. “I go above and beyond for my clients by learning their business, as well as their methods and operating procedures, so that I can understand the big picture instead of just focusing on the events leading to a lawsuit,” says Derek. “Gaining a total understanding of my clients and their work not only assists me in analyzing the alleged accident or occurrence that led to the lawsuit, but ensures effective and efficient representation in responding to discovery and dealing with various employees or members of the company.”
Prior to joining MGC, Derek focused on automobile, complex multi-party litigation, construction, general liability, products liability, as well as transportation and trucking matters at an insurance defense litigation firm. He has extensive experience litigating gig or sharing economy as well as retail and hospitality cases, and also previously served as assistant editor of the bi-annual Labor Law Update, which examined the latest developments regarding New York’s Labor Law and construction accidents. Derek also completed a semester externship in the Nassau County Commercial Division and volunteered there after taking the bar examination.
Derek is a dad to three children, including twins. Outside of MGC, he enjoys running and exercise, going to the beach, listening to live music, and cheering on the New York Rangers as well as the Liverpool Football Club.
