Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP brings together a high-stakes, cutting-edge litigation practice and a pioneering public impact practice in one modern and progressive law firm. Kaplan Hecker’s highly experienced lawyers serve clients across a wide range of matters, including commercial litigation for clients like Airbnb, Uber, and Fitch Ratings, white-collar criminal defense, and complex regulatory and securities cases – all benefiting from the legal team’s significant trial experience and track record of success. Kaplan Hecker has been named by Benchmark Litigation as “Boutique Firm of the Year” in 2022, 2021, and 2020. In 2019, Benchmark Litigation also recognized us as one of the “Top Boutiques” in the country, just two years after our founding. The publication has also consistently given the firm its highest ranking as a “Highly Recommended Law Firm – New York,” making Kaplan Hecker one of the very few litigation boutiques – and the only firm founded by women – to achieve that top designation.
Chambers and The Legal 500 have also recognized us as having one of the country’s top commercial litigation practices. In its profile, Chambers noted that Kaplan Hecker is “recognized for its excellence across an array of litigation-related matters” and is “respected by the market for its deep bench of heavy hitters.”
Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is more than a value of our firm, it is who we are. Our firm was founded by women and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Today, over 76% of our attorneys identify as women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, or some combination thereof. Across all of our work, we strive to make sure that our policies, the way we practice, and opportunities for advancement at our firm all actively reflect our prioritization of building an equitable and inclusive workplace. We are extremely proud that The American Lawyer has recognized this work, naming Kaplan Hecker its 2021 inaugural “Best Diversity Initiative” award recipient.
The firm balances its commercial practice with a groundbreaking commitment to the public interest. From securing a historic $26 million verdict against the white supremacists who organized the violence in Charlottesville, VA, to taking extraordinary efforts to defend the administration and certification of the 2020 Presidential election, Kaplan Hecker has placed public service at the center of its practice with notable results.
