Chambers USA

The latest edition of Chambers USA once again ranked Herrick’s real estate, New Jersey litigation and sports law practices for excellence, in addition to naming five Herrick partners as leading individuals in these areas.

Real Estate

For the 12th consecutive year, Herrick’s real estate department was ranked one of New York City’s top commercial real estate law practices. Chambers USA praised the department’s public sector experience and its facility with securing land use and zoning permits, citing the team as an established real estate group “assisting clients with the financing and execution of complex acquisitions and developments.” Having “a great breadth of knowledge,” the team was also noted as being “the kind of [lawyers] you look for to support your business as it grows.” Two Herrick real estate partners were recognized for excellence -- Belinda Schwartz for New York Real Estate and Mitchell Korbey, once again, for Zoning and Land Use.


For the sixth year in a row, Herrick’s litigation department was ranked for excellence in New Jersey commercial litigation. The team was noted for its “effective strategies” in handling a wide spectrum of civil litigation, and for an “impressive client roster” that includes financial institutions and food and beverage multinationals. Two Herrick litigation partners were also named leading individuals in New Jersey. In products liability, Ronald Levine was once again ranked and cited as “a brilliant lawyer” who’s “almost encyclopedic.” In commercial litigation, Scott Tross was also once again ranked and cited for his extraordinary legal skills, and invaluable expertise ranging from land use and partnership disputes to foreclosure claims.

Sports Law

For the fifth year and counting, Herrick’s sports law group “continues to be a go-to firm” for clients and was, once again, ranked for excellence nationally. Chambers USA recognized the team for its work with “some of the most storied names in American sports,” as well as its “ever-expanding roster of teams, leagues and investors” including clients such as Ultimate Fighting Championship in last year’s multi-million dollar bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. Herrick chairman Irwin Kishner was once again named a leading individual who drew praise for his “expertise and uncanny understanding of the work" and for being “clearly ahead of the curve.”
