New Jersey and New York
Commercial Litigation and Real Estate
From our offices in Hoboken, New Jersey and New York City, we serve as local counsel for businesses and law firms throughout New York and New Jersey. Local counsel serves a vital role in the representation of clients, particularly in complex commercial litigation.
We are frequently chosen as local counsel because of our extensive trial experience, commitment to innovative and aggressive representation, and our ability to actively practice law in the States of New Jersey and New York. As a result, we are very familiar with the applicable local rules, likes and dislikes of the local judges, and the subtle yet important nuances of the courts. Clients and law firms that have engaged us as local counsel have found our services invaluable to their litigation efforts.
Through twenty years of experience in commercial litigation, business law and real estate, we have become familiar with the many reasons, both legal and practical, that compel attorneys to refer cases:
- The referring attorney is not interested in trying cases.
- The complexity or time-consuming nature of the case mandates that the originating attorney refer it to a firm capable of handling the volume of expected work.
- Conflicts of interest prevent attorneys from handling matters themselves, thus making case referrals to other counsel necessary.
- For financial, personal or other non-legal reasons, the referring attorney simply does not wish to represent the client.
If you have a complex case involving business or real estate and you wish to refer it or engage New Jersey / New York co-counsel, or local counsel call (201) 217-1500 and ask for Richard Mackiewicz. We would be happy to discuss our qualifications to represent your client.
