    About Norris McLaughlin New York Attorneys

    Norris McLaughlin is a multi-practice law firm uniquely positioned to represent middle-market companies, Fortune 500 corporations, and individuals. While the firm’s breadth of services covers all areas of law, the Norris McLaughlin New York attorneys have extensive experience in business, intellectual property, immigration, and cooperative (“co-op”) and condominium law.

    The attorneys at Norris McLaughlin come from diverse backgrounds, hold degrees from top U.S. law schools, and regularly serve as leaders in bar associations and various trade groups. They have earned a strong reputation in virtually every area of practice within the realm of commercial law. With many of its attorneys selected as The Best Lawyers In America© each year, in addition to its active repertoire of speaking engagements and legal publications, the firm possesses large-firm talent in a small-firm setting that allows its attorneys to provide service and value to their clients on a personal level. It is the goal of Norris McLaughlin to accommodate the needs of every client with experience, strategic planning, and common courtesy.

    The firm opened its first New York office in 1999. In response to the changing needs of the business community, the office expanded and eventually moved from the original space to the office building at 875 Third Avenue in 2004. In 2006, the firm merged with Szold & Brandwen, adding significant real estate, financing, and litigation expertise to the firm. The merger allowed the firm to provide enhanced services to clients and strengthened its commitment to providing a broad range of legal services. Most recently, Norris McLaughlin left its New York home-base of 16 years with goals of continued growth and modernization. This new space in Times Square Tower gives the New York attorneys and staff access to state-of-the-art facilities as well as the technological capabilities to respond more effectively to the demands of the firm’s 21st Century clients.
