Vincent Costa is a corporate lawyer with a focus on both transactional and employment matters. As a former general manager of a family-run business on Long Island, Vincent understands what business owners need from their legal advisors and he brings a practical approach to each client matter. He has successfully negotiated and closed a variety of complex corporate matters including business divorces, buy-side and sell-side mergers and acquisitions (asset and stock purchases and sales), and financings, specifically in the healthcare, retail, and technology sectors. He also has experience drafting and negotiating contracts for various business-related matters including non-competition, supply, distribution, licensing, and employment agreements.

Vincent’s practice also includes the representation of corporate clients in labor and employment matters, including wage and hour disputes and employment discrimination matters. He defends employers against investigations by regulatory and government agencies including the New York State Department of Labor (NYDOL), the United States Department of Labor (USDOL), the New York State Attorney General’s Office, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This work includes the preparation of position statements and conducting internal investigations.

In law school, Vincent served as Editor-in-Chief of Touro Law Review and his Note, “Admissibility of Field Test Results at Trial to Prove Intoxication,” has been cited by New York State courts and criminal procedure treatises.
