Litigator Edwin F. Chociey, Jr. believes that preparation and attention to detail are essential components of effectively representing his clients. “I don’t assume anything about my cases,” he says.

Ed has developed a diverse commercial litigation practice. He frequently litigates in the areas of trade secrets, restrictive covenants and unfair competition. Among other types of matters, he also litigates in the areas of employment, insurance, transportation and logistics, hospital and health care, construction, intellectual property, products liability, utilities and estates. 

Ed represented Cooper University Hospital and Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in a highly public challenge to a human subject research study pursuant to which the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services granted certificates of need to certain hospitals, which lacked on-site cardiac surgery back-up, to perform elective angioplasty.  The controversial practice of permitting elective angioplasties to be performed at such hospitals is the subject of a research study that contravenes American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology guidelines. The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that the Department had illegally adopted the regulations pursuant to which the certificates of need were granted, and were therefore invalid.
