Olshan's clients range from public companies, hedge, venture capital, private equity and other investment funds to entrepreneurs and private companies worldwide. Clients choose Olshan for innovative strategies and sophisticated, game-changing advice in corporate, securities law and shareholder activism, complex commercial, corporate and securities litigation, bankruptcy and creditors' rights, real estate, intellectual property and advertising. Olshan is recognized by The National Law Journal as one of the top 20 midsize law firms in the U.S. on the "2012 Midsize Hot List". Since its founding, Olshan has offered an alternative to the AmLaw 50 law firm business model with responsive, independent and client-focused legal counsel provided by the firm's senior lawyers.


Olshan's Corporate group represents public and private issuers, underwriters and investors, including hedge funds, venture capital firms, investment advisers and high net worth individuals.

Our Activist group is widely recognized as the nation's premier practice in representing activist investors in contested director elections. Lawyers in the Activist group have been involved in seeking Board representation at over 300 public companies. The Activist group counsels clients on a wide variety of activist strategies, from proxy contests, consent solicitations and hostile takeovers to letter-writing campaigns and behind-the-scenes discussions with management and boards of directors.

The Litigation group represents funds, banks and other investors involving securities fraud allegations, broker-dealer disputes, lending, and contests for corporate control. Additionally, the group includes former prosecutors who maintain a white collar defense and whistleblower practice and general commercial litigators involved in a wide array of business and contract disputes involving software development, sales of businesses, sale of goods, executive raiding, real estate, partnership, restrictive covenants, licensing, trademark and copyright.

The Real Estate group's clients include purchasers and sellers in sale and exchange transactions, developers and borrowers of construction and permanent financing for projects of all types throughout the U.S., and commercial landlords and tenants. The group also represents entrepreneurs and investors capitalizing on opportunistic purchases of, or investments in, defaulted or troubled loans and projects.

The Intellectual Property group offers expert counsel and litigation capabilities to enable businesses and individuals to establish, protect and exploit their trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.

The Advertising, Marketing & Promotions group focuses on advertising and marketing law including advertising clearance, promotions, contests, sweepstakes and social media programs, regulatory investigations and litigation, consumer fraud defense, advertising litigation, competitor challenges, direct marketing, health and dietary supplements law, privacy issues, direct marketing, and telecommunications marketing.

The Tax & Personal Planning group provides sophisticated tax and financial planning services to corporations, partnerships/LLCs and other business entities, high net worth individuals, families, fiduciaries of complex estates and trusts and not-for-profit clients.

The Employment Practices group assists employers in managing their relationships with employees and independent contractors, including preparation of employment contracts, investigations into allegations of discrimination and harassment, counsel on workplace testing and FCRA compliance, and training on employment law.
