Our Firm

“... doing the things we believe clients want and not doing the things we believe clients don't want."

Meltzer Lippe has embraced a natural fusion between tax, corporate and real estate law. As a result, the firm has become a unique source of legal counsel for public and private companies, closely held family businesses, planning for high net worth businesses and high net worth individuals.

Our firm is home to six keystone practice groups: Tax, Corporate, Real Estate, Trusts & Estates, Labor & Employment and Commercial Litigation. Within these groups are specialty practices that have been developed to meet the evolving needs of our business, commercial, and high net worth clients. These practices include: employee benefits, partnerships, social media & privacy law, tax exempt organizations, tax controversy and wealth preservation.

The expertise and knowledge of our attorneys have grown in stride with the needs of our clients.  Our attorneys have experience in many industries and business sectors, including financial services, real estate, manufacturing, retail, security, information technology, software and healthcare. 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.

Values

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.
