Marc Rowin is a founding partner of Lynch Rowin. Although his work spans numerous practice areas, Mr. Rowin’s main focus is on commercial litigation and he has tried and settled a wide variety of matters. Mr. Rowin’s vast array of clients and legal experience spans virtually all industries. He represents several of the largest U.S. corporations, including a large retail department store chain, a major telecommunications company, and a nationally known software design firm.

In 1981, Mr. Rowin was one of the initial founding partners of what was then Lynch Rowin Burnbaum & Crystal. Over his nearly four decades of legal experience, he has advised and counseled clients in countless types of situations, from a nonprofit housing group in suit against a municipality’s zoning ordinance constitutionality, to private individuals in complex mortgage defaults. His capabilities and distinguished legal prowess are so well regarded that he has been retained on two occasions as an expert witness. Indeed, his work quality is so superb that a New York County Supreme Court Justice has commented that his "conduct of the trial was impeccable." (Extract v. Board of Managers of Beaumont Condominium, Index No. 112189/98, Supreme Court, N.Y.Cty., June 1, 2000).

His imaginative, insightful work has led to numerous successful results, including a recent complicated case, where he represented a married couple who had been defrauded and whose mortgage was being foreclosed upon pursuant to its use as collateral for a commercial loan. Using a handwriting expert as well as his own additional investigative work, Mr. Rowin determined that the notary who had approved a critical power of attorney signature, was in fact out of the U.S. at the time of the alleged signing. Having proven the document was not a bona fide mortgage, he achieved a successful result for his client.

Mr. Rowin is admitted to practice in New York, the U.S. Supreme Court, and several courts of appeals. He received his B.A. from Queens College in 1969 and his J.D. in 1972 from Harvard University Law School, where he was Comments Editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review.
