Biography

Jonathan L. Bing is a Principal in the New York City and Albany, New York, offices of Jackson Lewis P.C.

Mr. Bing represents clients in a broad range of advocacy including advancing legislation in the New York State Legislature and New York City Council; securing funding from State and City budgets for non-profit organizations; advising on cutting through the “red tape” of government, and defending clients against investigations by the New York State Department of Financial Services and Attorney General. Representative clients include the publisher of the most successful video game of all time, the trade association for the Broadway theatre industry, and several nonprofits including the largest provider of services for domestic violence victims in New York City; the pioneer of the consumer directed personal assistant home care worker industry in New York, and the organization which created the first senior center in the nation dedicated to technology.

Mr. Bing also handles hospitality matters for clients ranging from national hotel and restaurant chains to local eateries and bars. He appears on liquor licensing and related matters before community boards, city agencies, and New York State Liquor Authority hearing officers and commissioners. 

Prior to Jackson Lewis, Mr. Bing served at the request of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as the Special Deputy Superintendent in charge of the New York Liquidation Bureau, managing approximately 75 insolvent insurance companies with more than $3 billion in assets, a budget of $60 million, and 2,500 legal matters handled by outside counsel and a 20-member legal department. Before the NYLB, Mr. Bing was elected to five terms representing the East Side of Manhattan in the New York State Assembly, where he authored 85 bills that passed the Assembly, 35 of which also passed the Senate and were signed into law, including laws which expanded the statute of limitations for workers’ compensation claims made by 9/11 rescue, recovery and clean-up workers; the no-fault divorce law; and, the adoption of the UPMIFA statute that allowed cultural and higher education institutions more flexibility with their endowments. After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Mr. Bing was chosen to organize more than 250 attorneys as the New York Coordinator of the FEMA/American Bar Association’s Disaster Legal Services program, which provided free, comprehensive legal assistance to nearly 1,000 New Yorkers affected by the terrorist attacks. Subsequent to law school, Mr. Bing served as a law clerk in the U.S. District Court for the District of North Dakota and as a labor and employment associate at an international law firm.
