About Us

“Zealous advocacy” and “sound advice” are the hallmarks of RLR’s notably diverse practice. Our lawyers represent corporate as well as individual clients, including financial institutions, small and large businesses, developers, and cooperative housing corporations and condominiums, throughout the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area. With offices in the heart of midtown Manhattan and in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, RLR’s attorneys and staff use state-of-the-art facilities and technology, and hands-on, close personal attention, to deliver to our clients a wide range of services with an emphasis on creativity, efficiency, quality, and responsiveness.

Founded in 1991, RLR has substantial experience, in both litigation and transactional matters, in many areas of the law, including real estate acquisitions and sales, real estate financing, corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, construction, securities, cooperatives and condominiums, intellectual property, matrimonial and family law, trusts and estates, art law and employment law.

As a small, collegial firm, RLR provides its clients with the highest quality legal services in the most cost-effective, efficient manner. Unlike attorneys at many larger firms, where several attorneys must be consulted in various specialized departments, many attorneys at RLR have experience in transactional as well as litigation-related matters, and matters are often handled by only one or two attorneys. RLR’s attorneys, moreover, pride themselves on their ability to give their clients practical guidance, always with the understanding that legal and business issues often merge. RLR understands that the only way to be successful counselors at law is to listen carefully, and then respond promptly and effectively to clients’ concerns.

RLR prides itself on lean, efficient representation of clients, always keeping in mind the cost of legal services. The firm often represents clients who regularly retain larger law firms but who desire the same high-quality legal work at a lower cost with more hands-on attention from senior lawyers.
