Leading NYC Law Firm, Meister Seelig & Fein, Expands to Long Island to Attract the Area’s Best and Brightest Legal Talent
JERICHO, N.Y. & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Meister Seelig & Fein LLP (MSF), a leading New York City-based business law firm driven by entrepreneurial energy and focused on delivering tangible, value-added results, announced today the opening of its new, state of the art offices in Angelo Gordon’s and WE’RE Associates’ 100 Jericho Quadrangle in Jericho, New York. The move follows MSF’s prior expansions to Stamford, Connecticut and East Brunswick, New Jersey. MSF will attract the best and brightest of Long Island’s 25,000 resident lawyers who want the challenge and opportunity presented by working at a mid-sized firm in a friendly, collaborative environment — without having to spend hours per day commuting.
“The talent pool of attorneys who live in Nassau and Suffolk Counties is extraordinary. In the post-Covid world, it makes perfect sense to make it easier for great lawyers to hone their skills and build their careers at a dynamic firm that’s close to home”
Matthew E. Kasindorf, MSF Partner, Chair of the firm’s Commercial Real Estate Group and Professor in NYU’s Master’s Degree Program at the Schack Institute of Real Estate, who is also a Jericho resident, together with his partners, launched the idea of opening an office in Jericho as they witnessed colleagues challenged by the pandemic, who love being lawyers, but are now seeking a work opportunity that doesn’t include the additional stress of commuting. “The talent pool of attorneys who live in Nassau and Suffolk Counties is extraordinary. In the post-Covid world, it makes perfect sense to make it easier for great lawyers to hone their skills and build their careers at a dynamic firm that’s close to home,” said Kasindorf. “Through our recent expansions, we are providing a great solution for accomplished and talented lawyers who are facing the challenges of work/life balance. We are extremely excited about the opening of the Long Island office as it will give us the opportunity to attract the best attorneys that Long Island has to offer while providing the superior service that our clients rely on. MSF’s accomplished team and platform, enhanced by the skilled resources of lawyers who want to live and work on Long Island, will make for a combination that is destined for immediate success. I encourage lawyers who embrace a culture of excellence to contact us so that we can discuss plans to work and grow together.”
Kasindorf noted that the new Jericho offices aren’t for the dozen or so members of the Meister Seelig team who already live on Long Island and work in the New York City office. Instead, the Jericho office will be a vibrant hub for new Long Island attorneys and Long Island-based clients to experience the energy, camaraderie, and top-notch lawyering that Meister Seelig & Fein has provided for over 28 years.
Meister Seelig & Fein already has a formidable Long Island-based clientele and understands how Long Islanders think and do business. With the opening of the new Jericho office, MSF intends to expand all its major practice areas, including Commercial Real Estate, Litigation, Corporate, Tax, Intellectual Property, Estate Planning, Criminal Defense, Crisis Management, Employment and Hospitality. The seamless integration of these practice areas positions Meister Seelig & Fein as a unique one-stop provider for Long Island’s most sophisticated businesspeople and their companies.
