Who We Are

Since 1979, the firm has been a significant force in business litigation and real estate law in New York City. With the skill and sophistication of a large law firm and the responsiveness and efficiency of a small firm, we approach every matter, every case, every transaction with fresh eyes and an innovative mindset. By consistently delivering outstanding service and maintaining laser focus on our clients’ goals, we have earned the trust of Fortune 500 companies, major real estate investors, and other leading law firms.

We set a high bar.

To maintain our position as a top-tier law firm for decades, our attorneys must meet a higher standard. We expect nothing less than excellence – day in, day out. We’re consistently recognized alongside much larger firms for our exceptional performance, and while we appreciate the accolades, the highest compliment comes from clients who award us with their business, year after year, decade after decade.

We forge trust.

Driven by collective brainpower and a wealth of experience, our team’s broad knowledge base generates insightful analysis and creative solutions. Our long-term working relationships lead to a nuanced understanding of our clients’ business realities and objectives.

We’re fully invested.

We are a service organization, first and foremost. We deliver a level of personal attention, high-touch service, and responsiveness that bigger firms can’t. Where big firms put a bevy of lawyers on every matter, we work in lean teams so every dollar is invested in serving our clients.

We deliver results.

We maintain our focus on the destination. What do you really want to achieve? What’s the most efficient way to get there? Those two questions drive our approach to every matter and deal. That’s why we get results.
