Stein Adler is a New York City law firm,
created by big firm lawyers committed to having a small firm touch with clients.
We cut our teeth at some of the country's largest and most prestigious law firms, but now we're out to reshape the role of outside counsel. Unlike the typical lawyer-client dynamic, we forge deep and impactful relationships with clients by becoming an ingrained part of their business, and approaching their endeavors with a mindset that adds value at every turn. That’s why we call ourselves embedded counsel.
Whether you’re executing a complex transaction, tackling a business opportunity or trying to resolve a contentious dispute, we’ll stand alongside you, and we’ll be deeply invested in your success.
Sophisticated real estate developers rely on our legal advice on site selection, due diligence, land assemblages, development rights transfers, joint ventures, and other aspects of projects in the five boroughs of New York City, and other cities.
Our strong understanding of the real estate market helps us creatively and efficiently resolve disputes involving acquisitions and sales, construction and neighboring access, leasing, financing, title insurance, fraud, partnership battles and dissolutions, and other complex matters.
Our litigators have successfully resolved many types of complex disputes in state and federal courts, handling everything from case inception through judgment and appeal. We also advise clients on the alternative dispute resolution process, including mediations and arbitrations.
We have successfully documented, negotiated and closed a substantial number of large and mid-market transactions across the country, including single asset and portfolio acquisitions and dispositions, debt and equity financings, commercial leases and joint ventures.
We advise employers, officers and executives on a wide range of workplace issues, disputes and litigation in New York and New Jersey, as well as in internal investigations, government audits and administrative proceedings.
We frequently defend factoring companies, merchant cash advance companies and other alternative finance providers against usury, fraud, RICO and breach of contract claims, as well as attacks on judgments, emergency applications and plenary proceedings.
