Michelman & Robinson Opens Office in New York City


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Michelman & Robinson, LLP—which maintains offices in Encino, Santa Ana and San Francisco—yesterday announced the opening of a New York City location in a release.

Managing Partner Sanford Michelman said that the opening of the new office “underscores our objective to grow strategically in selective markets throughout the country,” and was a response to “tremendous demand” from clients.

The office will be led by former Duval & Stachenfeld corporate partners David Schwartz, Douglas Morea, and Charles Friedman, whom Michelman praised as “lawyers of the highest caliber.”

Schwartz said that he was looking forward to offering clients “a significant new breadth and depth of services to meet their legal needs,” and building “a significant presence for the firm in New York” by recruiting additional lawyers.

Morea said that he was “very excited to be associated with a law firm as dynamic and sophisticated” as Michelman & Robinson, and said his objective as chair of the firm’s Corporate and Securities Department was to “increase the depth” of the firm’s practice in that field in order to provide “a full spectrum of corporate and securities legal services to both public and private middle-market businesses.”

Michelman & Robinson’s practice areas include business and commercial litigation, administrative law, employment law, intellectual property, securities, real estate, taxation, construction insurance coverage and bad faith, health care, trusts and estates, bankruptcy, and writs and appeals.
