Zachary B. Grendi, Associate
Zachary B. Grendi joined ZEK’s Connecticut office in May 2015. Zach now splits his time between the firm’s New York and Connecticut offices to service his growing client base.
Zach’s practice focuses upon complex commercial litigation in the state and federal courts located in New York and Connecticut. He seeks to litigate his matters in a cost effective and aggressive manner.
Zach has represented the firm’s institutional lending clients in numerous matters before the Connecticut Appellate Court and two matters before the Connecticut Supreme Court.
