Meeting Sponsor


Every business has or will experience the current employee who makes legal threats, has initiated a legal proceeding, or is having his or her counsel actively solicit co-worker witnesses or potential deposition testimony.

Participants will be able to explain best practices associated with: 

  • best practices in guiding management
  • avoiding the proverbial snowball effect
  • de-escalation
  • legal insulation
  • and most importantly, not skipping a beat in business operations.



Ari Karpf is the managing partner of a multi-office law firm overseeing litigation in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  He is based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He is licensed by the highest Courts in each of these three states, and he is also licensed to practice before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and 4 other district courts. 

Mr. Karpf’s legal focus throughout his career has been in the areas of employment and civil rights litigation. While continually representing corporations during his legal career, he has primarily represented individuals. Common areas in which he litigates include but are not limited to class-action wage litigation, executive and business-related contracts, discrimination, wrongful termination, whistle blowing, FMLA, ERISA, labor regulations, and other aspects of the employment setting.  He also regularly appears before agencies such as the Department of Labor, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, National Labor Relations Board, and the  Division of Civil Rights. 

Mr. Karpf is a very accomplished trial attorney, and he has tried many cases as co- or lead-counsel throughout the tri-state area in state and federal courts.  He currently serves as a co-coordinator of the Public Interest Panel for the United States District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Therein, he serves as a mentor to attorneys in the greater-Philadelphia area seeking guidance or experience in the areas of employment law(s) and assists coordinating pro-bono representation. Mr. Karpf is also a frequent author and lecturer. He typically authors publications for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (“PBI”) several times per year, and he lectures at Continuing Legal Education seminars.
