The Law Office of Steven Riker is a New York-based law firm, which provides high-quality legal services at cost-effective rates to a diversified clientele in the New York metropolitan area. The Firm's practice areas include commercial and business litigation, real estate transactions (buying/selling/leasing), landlord/tenant law, contracts, business formation, hotel/hospitality law, employment law, trusts and estates, and political asylum. The Firm represents individuals and entities in actions involving breach of contract and fiduciary duty, shareholder and partnership disputes, specific enforcement of real estate contracts, brokerage disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, mechanic's liens, employment disputes, and Surrogate's Court and estate matters. The Firm also represents owners, developers, landlords, and tenants in commercial and residential real estate acquisitions, lease transactions and related financing transactions. The Firm counsels businesses in a broad range of matters, including the formation of limited liability companies, corporations, and partnerships, the preparation and negotiation of operating agreements, shareholders' agreements, and various corporate governance documents, and obtains employment-based visas for their workers. The Firm also represents individuals and fiduciaries in various Surrogate Court's proceedings involving Wills, Trusts, and Estates.

The Firm's clients have included large publicly-traded companies, corporate executives, prominent individuals, and many small business owners. However, every client and every project, whether big or small, receives the same level of commitment, diligence and ingenuity which distinguishes the Firm's practice.

The Firm, due to legal/ethical obligations, seeks to keep the identity of its clients and their actions confidential. However, representative clients of the Firm have included judges, attorneys, prominent individuals/families, and large companies. Several matters handled by the Firm have been reported in both domestic and international newspapers. Lawsuits and transactions successfully handled by the Firm have ranged from hundreds of thousands of dollars to as much as thirty million dollars.
