Today’s business is global. We represent businesses overseas who need our services here in New York and New Jersey. Whether we are suing a store in Manhattan that owes money to our client, a jeweler in Rome, or whether we are working on a franchise agreement between a bistro in France and an entrepreneur in Brooklyn we handle most aspects of international business. We work with groups of foreign investors to purchase real estate and businesses locally. And we specialize in converting foreign judgments and arbitration awards into domestic judgments which we can then enforce here.
We offer both a wide variety of experience as well as many years of practice. Howard Weber has been in practice since 1982. His expertise is in such demand that he a frequent lecturer at industry seminars, conventions and conferences and he has contributed many articles and chapters to a variety of legal publications.

Joe’s expertise is diverse, whether it be preparation and review of leases (his specialty), or negotiating complex business transactions.

In fact, a client calling our office can speak to just about anyone who works here and get an answer.
