Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP Opens Offices in Burlington, Ontario and New York City
The Burlington office is located at 1100 Burloak Drive and the New York City office is at 415 Madison Avenue in Manhattan.
Nearly a year ago, LMWF expanded to the east by opening an office in Albany. The expansion into the dynamic Southern Ontario and New York City markets is consistent with the firm’s strategy to grow beyond its Western New York base.
“As part of our strategic plan to offer our legal services to a broader geographic client base it made sense for us to expand into the New York City and Southern Ontario markets,” said Kevin Cross, Managing Partner, Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP. “We already conduct substantial business in both markets and now is the perfect time to continue our growth as a firm by having a physical presence in these growing and dynamic regions.”
Led by partner Thomas J. Keable, the firm’s Canadian Cross Border Practice Group, consisting of more than a dozen attorneys, will continue to assist Canadian companies and LMWF’s Canadian partners (law firms, accounting firms, etc.) with U.S. transactions and activities, including in areas such as entity formation and structuring, estates and trusts, financing transactions, general corporate, intellectual property, litigation, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, private equity, contractual matters, and securities and venture capital.
In New York City, more than half a dozen attorneys from the firm’s Buffalo office will spend time representing clients on any variety of the firm’s more than 20 practice areas out of the office space in Midtown Manhattan. “We have a number of middle market private equity, independent sponsor, and company clients in the NYC metro area – and we are thrilled to have an office there to better service their needs” notes John J. Koeppel, Partner and Leader of the firm’s Private Equity Practice.
