New York, NY – Phillips Nizer LLP is pleased to announce the selection of Perry S. Galler, a senior litigator and the firm’s administrative partner, as a 2015 BTI Client Service All-Star.  Mr. Galler was one of 354 individual attorneys in the nation selected as a result of nominations and in-depth, independent interviews of general counsel and legal services procurement executives in the world's leading organizations conducted by The BTI Consulting Group, Inc.  The annual definitive report identifies a highly selective group of attorneys who are “influencing and changing the legal industry.”

BTI Client Service All-Stars are attorneys BTI Consulting identifies as a “rare breed of attorneys who combine exceptional legal expertise with practice advice, business savvy and innovative, effective solutions (that) make clients’ lives easier.”  The attorneys represented are truly the best of the best.  No attorney can self-nominate, refer a client to be interviewed, pay or otherwise find a way into this coveted report.

In addition to being a litigator, Galler is a skilled arbitrator and has served as panel chairman in various arbitration proceedings.  Throughout his career, his clients have included corporations, partnerships, closely-held businesses, not-for-profits and individuals.  

“Perry embodies the tradition set by our founder Louis Nizer – the client always comes first.  This, above all things, runs deep within our firm’s DNA from our attorneys to our support staff,” said Marc Landis, Phillips Nizer’s managing partner.  “Perry is and has always been a skilled professional, effective, pragmatic and the consummate legal counselor.  We are proud that BTI has honored him in this manner.”

Galler joined Phillips Nizer after law school and served as the firm’s managing partner for almost 20 years until his election to administrative partner in 2014.  He earned his J.D. from New York University School of Law (’72), and his undergraduate degree from the City University of New York at Brooklyn College (’67).  He is admitted to practice in New York, the Court of Appeals for the Second and Eleventh Circuits, as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts.

For over two decades, Galler has been counsel to The Jewish Week, a highly respected print and online newspaper serving the Greater New York Jewish community.  He is also a former president of the Yeshivah of Flatbush in Brooklyn, New York.
