For the 11th consecutive year, Herrick’s real estate department was ranked one of New York City’s top commercial real estate law practices. Specifically, Chambers USA praised the speed of response and technical abilities of Herrick’s full service real estate department, as well as the firm’s strategic approach to a wide range of legal concerns. Chambers USA also once again named Mitchell A. Korbey a leading individual in land use and zoning law, noting his role as a former commissioner of the New York City Board of Standards and Appeals, as well as his “specialized understanding of how city agencies do business.”


For the fifth year in a row, Herrick’s litigation department was ranked for excellence in New Jersey commercial litigation. The firm’s “impressive client roster” and “ability to handle a wide spectrum of litigation, including complex commercial disputes, real estate litigation and commercial foreclosures” was highlighted. Two Herrick litigation partners were also named leading individuals in New Jersey. In products liability, Ronald J. Levine was once again ranked, and cited as “very well respected” and “particularly well known for…consumer products and food and beverage cases.” In commercial litigation, Scott Tross was also once again ranked, and cited for his “wealth of experience in real estate litigation” and “widely recognized knowledge on foreclosure law.”

For the fourth year in a row, Herrick’s sports law group was ranked for excellence nationally. In doing so, Chambers USA cited Herrick’s client roster of “some of the most storied names in American sports,” as well as an ever-expanding roster of teams, leagues and investors” including World Surf League, Venezia F.C. and the New York Racing Association. Herrick chairman Irwin A. Kishner was also named a leading individual for national sports law.
