Vetone Ivezaj,

Legal Administrative Assistant:Vanessa Smith


Vetone represents businesses in complex environmental and commercial litigation.

Vetone’s practice focuses on defending commercial and environmental class and mass actions, including those targeting facilities for negligence and nuisance claims based on alleged community impacts to air and property. This year, AmLaw Litigation Daily recognized her for her work in a case in the Southern District of Florida, in which the judge denied class certification in a suit involving 20,000 commercial waste collection customers across the state, having highlighted significant variation in the underlying contracts. 

In addition to her environmental work, Vetone serves as Secretary of the New York City Bar Association’s Environmental Law Committee and is a member of B&D’s Pro Bono Committee. Prior to joining Beveridge & Diamond, Vetone was a litigation associate at a law firm in New York City, where she served as second chair in an arbitration involving claims for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duties, and fraud in the inducement and successfully secured an award for $23.6 million for the clients, a public company and one of its subsidiaries.

Vetone attended Georgetown University Law Center, where she worked on a case heard by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and was a law clerk with the Department of Justice’s Environment and Natural Resources Division.
