Our legal team's primary focus is New York estate litigation and administration, including will contests, probate litigation, inheritance disputes, trust litigation, and Surrogate's Court cases involving beneficiaries, claimants, executors, and trustees. We will handle matters in New York City area courts, including those in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Westchester, and Nassau counties, for clients worldwide.
Our approach to New York trust and estate litigation and will contests is to offer large-firm quality, small-firm attentiveness, and cost-conscious representation. We strive to provide "Concierge-Level Service" to our trust and estate litigation clients because we understand the grief, stress, conflict, fear, uncertainty, and outrage that many of them experience. They need an attorney who is both a strong, experienced courtroom advocate and a caring, compassionate human being. That combination of qualities has become the hallmark of our trust and estate litigation practice. Where appropriate, and upon client request, we offer a multidisciplinary collaborative approach, working with a psychologist, family business succession expert, and professionals from our firm to defuse and resolve estate controversies before they explode into costly, protracted litigation.
In addition to New York trust and estate litigation and will contests, we also handle commercial litigation, white collar defense matters, and tax controversies, as well as provide a range of general corporate, corporate securities, and corporate finance services. We troubleshoot problems for businesses, professionals, executives, and high net-worth individuals through strategic counseling, assistance with negotiations, supervision of investigations, representation before government agencies, and trial advocacy. The breadth of our experience in commercial transactions, business litigations, and fraud investigations is a major advantage in trust and estate litigation, which may involve complex, sophisticated business holdings, as well as accusations of fiscal improprieties.
We invite litigation and transactional engagements from throughout the United States and overseas. We are pleased to serve as local counsel, coordinating counsel, or in a consulting capacity.
