Brother Nipun Patel

March 8, 2017-- 1PM

Iota Nu Delta would like to honor the accomplishments of our alumnus, Nipun Patel. Nipun is the first INΔ Brother to be elected to partner at an AmLaw 100 Firm.

Nipun crossed into Iota Nu Delta Fraternity, Inc. in 2002, completed his undergraduate studies at Temple University in 2005, and graduated from Temple University Beasley School of Law in 2008. 

Nipun is currently a partner in the Complex Litigation Group of Reed Smith LLP, and is a resident in the Philadelphia Office. At the time of his election to partner, he became the youngest partner at Reed Smith – a firm with over 1,700 lawyers worldwide – and only one of two diverse partners in the Philadelphia office. Nipun maintains a broad-based commercial litigation practice, with an emphasis on financial services matters, class actions, employment litigation, and commercial disputes. Nipun has practiced extensively before federal and state courts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and other jurisdictions, doing both trial and appellate work. His experience encompasses first chair trial responsibility, representing both plaintiffs and defendants.

Outside of the office, Nipun is extremely active in the community. Nipun serves on the executive committee and as pro-bono general counsel to Legacy Youth Tennis and Education; on the board and as Vice President of the South Asian Bar Association of Philadelphia; on the board of the Philadelphia Diversity Law Group; and on the Young Professionals Leadership Board of the The Barnes Foundation.

Nipun credits much of his success to the strong network and relationships facilitated by INΔ. Nipun’s clients include INΔ brothers who have gone on to successful in-house careers and supported him both personally and professionally. His story is a testament to the brotherhood and life-long bond of INΔ. Nipun also remains an active alumni mentor, ready to assist and speak with any brother who is considering a career in law, particularly with ambitions to work at a large law firm.
