The mid-sized law firm with two offices in New York and one in New Jersey will be the
Alliance's representative for the New York metropolitan area

New York, NY – Phillips Nizer LLP announces its selection to the International Alliance of Law Firms, a worldwide legal association of 55 firms in 41 countries.  The firm has been admitted as the Alliance representative for the New York metropolitan area.  The firm is headquartered in New York City.  This follows an extensive effort to assess and credential potential member firms in these critical markets.

Phillips Nizer is an entrepreneurial based mid-sized law firm whose guiding principle is "Resourceful Representation." The firm was founded in 1926 by Louis Nizer, considered one of the most outstanding trial lawyers of the twentieth century, and Louis Phillips, Vice President and General Counsel of Paramount Pictures. Today, the firm carries on in the tradition of its founders, with 75 attorneys providing personalized services -- counseling and representing its business and individual clients -- in a wide-range of domestic and international practice areas: 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. The firm's lawyers, several of whom are multi-lingual, have strong ties to Europe, Israel and Asia.

Phillips Nizer managing partner, Perry Galler, explains his firm's position: "We are incredibly pleased to have joined the Alliance. Our domestic and international client base continues to grow substantially and our strategic relationship with the Alliance gives us access to leading law firms around the world."

Wendy Horn, Executive Director of the Alliance commented: "Phillips Nizer is a perfect fit for our organization. The firm is dynamic, highly talented and successful with a first class U.S. and international client base in our key business sectors. They are team players and match our international model: an independent firm bound by common quality standards and business culture, not merger.”
