Our Firm

Newhouse & Faino LLP provides nationwide legal services to clients operating in the new economy, particularly logistics and transportation companies, and helps those clients solve their most important problems. The firm is founded on the principle that sophisticated, partner-level attention to clients yields the best results—those that are tailored to a client’s goals, performed at the highest level, and delivered efficiently.


Jeff Newhouse's practice focuses on litigating independent contractor class and collective actions in state and federal courts throughout the country, helping clients create defensible independent contractor models, and advising clients on independent contractors' classification in connection with mergers and acquisitions. Jeff’s clients range from fast-growing start ups to Fortune 200 companies, but their common thread is a desire to implement and capitalize on new economic models that utilize independent contractors. He is a former equity partner of an AmLaw 100 firm.
