2013 Legal Leaders Wall Street Journal
We don’t just answer the questions, we question the answers.
We are game changers. Attorneys whose presence dramatically alters the dynamics of any transaction or litigation. Our lawyers are the finest in New York City. We are a full service, multidisciplinary, boutique law firm that has secured and negotiated multimillion-dollar settlements and transactions on behalf of our clients in litigation, real estate, corporate and intellectual property matters. In litigation, our firm’s success rate is exceptional. While justice may be blind, we are pleased it often sees things our way. We have earned the reputation of commanding both respect and reverence from our peers and adversaries alike. We continue to maintain the highest possible rating of “AV®” by Martindale-Hubbell®, the country’s leading lawyer rating service.
Our philosophy is simple. We put people first. Always. Which is why, on every assignment we undertake, we are motivated by one consistent goal – to understand our client’s objectives and work with each client as if we had no other. Our clients welcome this approach and have helped build our sterling reputation for insightful counseling, timely advice and constructive contributions to their business. Our part in earning that reputation has been founded on knowing our clients’ business, so they don’t have to teach us about it.
We are trusted legal advisers in complex transactions and major disagreements. Emerging businesses trust us to guide them through their growth and development. Businesses involved in disputes turn to us to develop and implement effective litigation strategies. Our legal advice is straightforward, pragmatic and based upon articulated risks and rewards. We are innovative, creative, relentless and unwavering in our commitment to the achievement of our clients’ objectives. This dedication to client service defines our firm’s culture and drives our professional success. To our clients we devote the legal talents and skills of our attorneys, delivered with hard work, excellence and integrity. Beyond diligence and expertise, our lawyers bring sound business judgment, imagination, open-mindedness and accessibility, thereby augmenting our effectiveness as both advisers and counselors in the service of our clients’ objectives. These are values that enhance value.
Our clients represent the diverse and sophisticated nature of our practice and range from all major businesses and industries. We are privileged to work with the world’s most recognized, reputable and respected individuals and institutions as well as many start up entrepreneurs, visionaries and risk takers. Unwilling simply to answer the questions, we persist in questioning the answers until our clients are satisfied with the result. There is no nobility in apathy. We not only identify with our clients’ matters but align ourselves 100% with their goals and concerns so that they are never alone. Our mathematics is simple, our clients + us = 1.
We continue to reflect on our accomplishments with a deep and dual sense of gratitude and humility. As always, we gratefully acknowledge the ever-present and beneficial hand of the One above for the numerous and wondrous blessings with which He has favored us. We are privileged to be one of New York City’s preeminent firms and honored to be recognized as Legal Leaders®.
