Our Firm

The firm employs over 70 attorneys who counsel a broad range of clients, including private business owners, corporate executives working at both public and private companies, major real estate developers and organizations, venture capitalists and individuals worldwide.

The knowledge in these sectors and prior experience gained at major New York City law firms, allows our attorneys to provide the same effective legal counsel on complex matters; but do so at a value unmatched by those same large New York firms.

Our practice areas include Bankruptcy, Workouts & Creditors’ Rights; Business & Real Estate Taxation; Construction; Corporate/Business; Crisis Management, Investigations & Constitutional Law; Government Strategies; Labor & Employment; Litigation; Mental Health, Guardianship & Elder Law Litigation; Private Wealth & Taxation; Real Estate; Social Media, Software & Privacy; Tax Exempt Organizations; Trust & Estate Litigation; and Trusts & Estates.

Further differentiating Meltzer Lippe is the simple phrase stated at the onset. The phrase that has guided our firm and its attorneys over the years; to serve our client’s legal needs by

“…doing the things we believe clients want and not doing the things we believe clients don’t want.”

It is an important phrase in understanding the value system and culture in place at Meltzer Lippe.
