At Weil, Mr. Yolkut focuses on a wide variety of complex disputes, including high-stakes First Amendment and other constitutional issues, contract, fraud, antitrust class actions, DOJ and other governmental investigations, intellectual property rate-setting, copyright infringement, defamation, civil RICO, Article 78, and the False Claims Act. Mr. Yolkut also has an active pro bono practice, where he focuses extensively on religious freedom cases. Has successfully represented the East End Eruv Association and the Bergen Rockland Eruv Associations in a series of high-profile federal civil and constitutional rights cases against three municipalities in Long Island, NY and three municipalities in Bergen County, NJ. Most recently, his team secured for the Congregation Shomrei Torah of Clifton, NJ, one of the largest-ever recoveries under the federal Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act in connection with years-long delays and disparate treatment by the Clifton Planning and Zoning Boards that prevented the Congregation from building a house of worship.
