About our New York, NY: office

Phillips Nizer LLP has been engaged in a wide-ranging international and domestic legal practice since 1926. Our size and diversity of our practice enable us to be a full-service law firm in virtually all areas of law while affording clients close contact and working relationships with partners and associates.

Our attorneys focus on the realities of our clients' continually evolving business needs. Whether we are working with individual clients, a small start-up company or an international corporation, we use teamwork to respond to these issues with practical, cost-effective and innovative legal solutions. We see our firm as an entrepreneurial-based mid-sized New York law firm whose guiding principle is "Resourceful Representation". Our firm carries on in the tradition of our founders, with attorneys providing personalized services -- counseling and representing its business and individual clients -- in areas such as, 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.
