About the Firm

The trend today in the legal profession favors mergers and growth, “platforms and synergies” and multinational offices with many hundreds of lawyers. In 2006, we bucked this trend by opening our own civil and criminal litigation boutique.

Our clients—who run the gamut from artists, creators and entrepreneurs to publicly held corporations—understand that the outcome of litigation depends on the quality and experience of the individual lawyers fighting for you. Not on firm size, “platforms” or offices in exotic locales.
