Professional Experience

Mr. Levine is an experienced corporate transactional and compliance lawyer with a focus on cross-border transactions, financial and commercial matters, who has served clients from start-up entities to companies traded on U.S. and foreign exchanges, from clients engaging in their first cross-border transaction to clients with a truly global reach. In all, Mr. Levine has negotiated and closed transactions in more than 20 countries on five continents, and has advised companies based in the United States and companies based in other countries on transactional matters, business structure, outsourcing and cross-border compliance issues including import/export, FCPA/Bribery Act and local standards and requirements. In so doing, Mr. Levine has established partnerships with local lawyers throughout the world, which enables him to provide a truly international practice in a highly efficient manner.

Mr. Levine has served as Special Counsel to the Audit Committee of a New York Stock Exchange-traded company in connection with the investigation of alleged financial reporting misconduct by a foreign subsidiary. The investigation resulted in a restatement of the company’s earnings and disciplinary action against the individuals involved. An investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was resolved without any penalty or finding of wrongdoing against the company.

From the start of his career, Mr. Levine has also advised manufacturers, distributors, transportation companies and service providers with respect to compliance with federal and state environmental and worker health and safety laws and regulations, as well as evaluating environmental risks in transactions across the world.  Mr. Levine has negotiated cost reimbursement agreements on over 100 state and federal environmental cleanup sites, shepherded dozens of sites through “brownfields” programs, and negotiated favorable resolution of state and federal agency enforcement actions across the United States. 

Throughout his career, Mr. Levine has negotiated and closed deals and advised clients on business matters in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic, Italy, China, Japan, India, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand, among others. Not surprisingly, Mr. Levine loves to travel in his free time, returning to favorite parts of the globe and exploring new ones. Ari is also a life-long Philadelphia sports fan and is thus well acquainted with suffering.
