Firm Profile

We deliver sophisticated legal services at cost-effective rates, giving our clients peace of mind by fiercely safeguarding and promoting their interests at every turn. We call it Resourceful Representation®.

Phillips Nizer is a mid-size firm – by choice. Our lawyers know each other well and enjoy practicing together on important and challenging legal work for valued clients. Our talent and experience allow us to handle virtually any matter, large or small, in any subject area. We are nimble, flexible, creative and adaptable – traits required by the fast-paced and evolving world in which lawyers practice today.

We listen to clients, work with them to develop plans of action, and then implement the resulting strategies skillfully and efficiently. And, we stay with assignments until they are completed to our clients’ satisfaction. We are not afraid to pursue new or different paths, but we also avoid reinventing what already works well and is otherwise suitable.

At Phillips Nizer, the client always comes first. This is true today, and it has been true since the firm was started over 90 years ago. That helps explain why the firm, and many of its lawyers, have been recognized as top practitioners by leading commentators and publications assessing legal qualifications and credentials.

Phillip Nizer is deeply committed to diversity. The firm is proud that this commitment was recently featured in the New York Law Journal. The firm also actively supports the implementation of the report issued by the New York State Bar Association entitled “If Not Now, When? Achieving Equality for Women Attorneys in the Courtroom and in ADR,” which was co-authored by a Phillips Nizer partner. Another firm partner serves in a leadership role on the NYS Bar Association’s Committee on LGBT People and the Law.

The firm has offices in New York and New Jersey, but it handles matters throughout the country. Phillips Nizer is a member of Ally Law (https://ally-law.com/), an alliance of over 60 law firms in more than 40 countries committed to delivering local business intelligence with global depth and reach to their clients. The firm is the Ally Law member in the New York metropolitan area. Through this membership, Phillips Nizer has the ability to work for its clients in multiple jurisdictions.
