The firm’s history began in 1981, when Barbara Barron established a practice in regulatory, insolvency, and creditors’ rights matters. Manny Newburger joined the firm in 1983, and the practice has grown into a national presence, that retains a personal touch. Our team’s decades of experience span consumer and commercial litigation, federal and state regulatory matters, general business litigation, insolvency and bankruptcy litigation, business transactions and acquisitions, and compliance and corporate governance. The diverse background and experience of our attorneys allows for a deep understanding of the specialized needs of our clients. Our successes in both private litigation and regulatory matters have been substantial, and our experience working with corporate counsel and C-level executives enables us to assist clients in designing custom solutions that fit their specific needs.
In addition to our standard litigation services we also provide general counsel services, and we manage litigation, litigation strategy, and settlement negotiations for clients seeking to outsource those functions. Our decades of experience enable us to fine-tune strategies with the insight of a large firm and the personal attention of a small firm. At the heart of each client relationship (whether decades or hours long) is honesty — the firm’s culture is to tell clients what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.
