Presenter Bios  
Edward Neiger started off as a bankruptcy lawyer, training under the legendary bankruptcy attorney Harvey R. Miller at the bankruptcy and litigation powerhouse, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. He founded Neiger LLP in 2008, and after meeting Joseph Steinfeld, the two hit it off and began trying cases together and doing joint representations, then decided to merge their practices in 2012 under ASK LLP. Now, with multiple areas of law practice and almost 150,000 clients, ASK LLP has grown into a modern, sophisticated law firm.
With an impressive roster of bankruptcy case involvement to his name including Enron, Lehman Brothers, GM, PG&E and representing thousands of victims of Boy Scout sexual abuse and over 100,000 victims of Purdue Pharma, Ed has devoted his career to standing up against powerful people and entities and taking an aggressive stance to fight and recover money for victims.
Ed is a passionate advocate for those affected by the opioid crisis. He is on the board of 2EndTheSitgma and works to help those suffering from addiction, including those incarcerated, get the help they need. At the same time, he fights to hold those responsible for the opioid crisis, especially governments and elected officials, accountable.
In the past, he helped Holocaust survivors recover monetary damages from the German government, including his own grandfather.
He is a member of the New York City Bar Association’s Imperfect History Committee, which explores and uncovers the racist roots of the NYC Bar Association, and, in 2020, Edward was recognized as one of the American Bankruptcy Institute’s ‘40 Under 40’ award winners.
Ed is the author of the New York Law Journal’s “Mass Torts Roundup” and “Bankruptcy Update” columns.
All of Ed’s grandparents are Holocaust survivors and came to the United States as refugees after the Second World War. He is a Brooklyn native and a first-generation college graduate, earning a JD from Fordham University School of Law where he served on the prestigious Law Review. He lives in New York with his wife and two daughters.
