Our firm is an entrepreneurial-based mid-sized law firm whose guiding principle is "Resourceful Representation." We carry on in the tradition of our founders, including Louis Nizer, by providing personalized services -- counseling and representing businesses and individual clients -- in areas such as, litigation, arbitration and mediation, corporate and commercial transactions, real estate, estate planning and administration, tax, banking and finance, securities, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property (trademark, copyright and new media), licensing and franchising, and matrimonial.
