Land Use & Zoning Law

I have had very good experiences with Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel's land use and zoning law practice. They are knowledgeable, and, more importantly, when the information requested is not at their fingertips, they have the resources on hand (other lawyers in-house, governmental contacts) to get knowledgeable quickly.

Insurance Law

I work with Kramer Levin attorney Dan Rabinowitz, who is a complete gem and a rare find. He manages all transactions and analyses that we do with the firm. He is low-key and loathe to market himself, but is vastly knowledgeable regarding insurance regulations and pending developments, knows most of the players (government and private sector people), is immersed in insurance regulatory “speak”, and, miraculously, marries that technical attention to detail beautifully with an outstanding corporate and commercial business sense. In essence, he understands every detail of the technical issues and knows how to translate and contextualize those for us regular folks. He gives pragmatic advice, where he will fully describe any risks involved, but is not afraid to take a stand and put those risks in perspective for the client. He is very comfortable taking a specific point of view, when asked for it, although of course he will defer to the client’s wishes. He is responsive, always delivers, and listens to the client’s needs and addresses them. The firm also provides extraordinary value for money relative to the large NY firms, whose expertise is less than Dan’s, and whose hourly rates exceed his. He is always my go-to, trusted, outside counsel for all things insurance regulatory, and he always makes himself available, no matter how busy he is.

Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law

I have worked closely with Josh Brody at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel. There is no better bankruptcy attorney that I would rather work with after having had the pleasure of working closely with some very talented individuals. What makes Josh unique (outside of his commercial attributes - responsive, client friendly, respect from peers) is that he does more than just provide counsel and advice as it pertains to the law; he finds angles and ways to create value and generate actual PNL for clients.

They are excellent at assessing risk and helping to build the most solid cases possible, and as a result, we have been extremely successful in our visa acquisition across all of our offices. I trust them deeply and truly enjoy working with them.

Securitization and Structured Finance Law

Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel's securitization group is second to none. The firm's team provides creative, constructive counsel that makes esoteric ABS deals possible and repeat deals run smoothly. They help us focus on the real risks inherent in a transaction and help us devise appropriate structures to deal with those risks. They also do their best not to let deals get bogged down in analysis of theoretical risks that pose no real world threat. I always appreciate their counsel whether, it the tenth deal we've worked on together for an issuer or the first.

Their expertise is not limited to case law; the team offers advice informed by the ideal balance of legal knowledge, dispute resolution and negotiation experience and business-saavy / business acumen, leading to cost-conscious counsel. There is only one other firm that I would reference with this balance. I find their advice invaluable and would highly recommend them for any IP dispute matters.
