Advancing and Protecting the Interests of Employees and Entrepreneurs

Founded in 1977, the firm is comprised of attorneys who represent employees in New Jersey and New York who have been wrongfully discharged, whether by closely held businesses or Fortune 500 companies.

The attorneys in our entrepreneurial practice provide innovative and strategic guidance to the firm’s clients who are seeking to start, grow or restructure a business, purchase another business or sell their interest in a business or to protect their shareholder or other equity interests.
