Advertising Law

I have worked with multiple lawyers from Olshan Frome Wolosky for three years. They have been amazingly customer focused, really worked to understand my (sometimes rapidly evolving) needs, and responded quickly and effectively. I am quite happy with both the process and the results of the engagement. In particular, I will highlight the work of Andrew Lustigman as being superb.

Olshan Frome Wolosky has been a true advocate for our clients and for us. We were a first time activist with no knowledge. We are running a campaign that many have said is among them most professional they have ever seen. From strategy to litigating we have the A+ team, and when the stakes are this high that is a comforting feeling. I wouldn't use anyone else. They are a great member of our team, and we are grateful they are on our team!

Olshan Frome Wolosky is excellent firm, with excellent partners and staff. I work with several attorneys at the firm, some of whom have counseled me for almost 20 years and multiple companies. Advertising Law is a key specialty and their practice in that area, headed by Andrew Lustigman, stands out from others. They have a particular expertise in the life sciences area, cost-effective use of arbitration to resolve matters and defending Lanham Act allegations.

I work with Olshan Frome Wolosky often and I am always impressed with them. The firm is a throwback to the "old days" when young associates were mentored and taught the right way to do things, and when civility and expertise were not only expected from a law firm, but delivered.

Real Estate Law

Olshan Frome Wolosky provides great expertise, service, and results all within a reasonable fee structure. It is a mid-size firm in lawyer count and cost, but not in talent - they can (and do) stand tall against any of the "white shoe" firms. The litigation and leasing groups are extremely responsive, as well as creative, clear, expedient, and concise in their recommendations, advice, and counsel. They aggressively (but not obnoxiously) pursue the desired objective and results, but with an eye towards pragmatism and cost-effectiveness, which generally is (and has been) to the client's benefit.

Mergers & Acquisitions Law

I first worked with Olshan and Steve Wolosky specifically in the early '90s. Steve and his firm helped our company with a public offering. Steve, besides being a great lawyer, is smart, hardworking, responsive and has a nice personal touch. I had not spoken with Steve in several years when I called in 2011 to help with the sale of our company. We picked up right where we left off and Steve, Mike Neidell and the rest of the firm again did an outstanding job with our transaction. Firebirds was a relatively small deal, and in terms of the way our transaction was handled, you would have thought it was a multibillion-dollar deal. Steve and Mike worked late nights and weekends when needed over the course of several months to ensure that our transaction would get done to our satisfaction and that our best interests would be protected. In addition to the great respect we have for Steve, Mike and the entire firm, it was apparent that the firm representing the buyer, Angelo, Gordon, had similar high regard for Steve, Mike and the firm as well. I wouldn't consider using another firm for a transaction, or any other need for that matter.

My personal experience with the firm is related to the securities, corporate and capital markets legal team under the leadership of Mr. Steve Wolosky and Mr. Ken Silverman and includes the joint work in various corporate transactions and securities issues. The firm has a strong team and renders a valuable and excellent service which includes a very high professional level of service as well as aggressive, as needed, response time. The team is able to achieve in a short time a comprehensive and deep understanding of both business and legal needs of the client and is able, using its experience, expertise and highly motivated professionals, to provide excellent valuable, cost effective legal services which cover all aspects of the transaction and is "hands on" with respect to all details of the transaction.
