Small in size but not in stature, Manhattan-based Ganfer & Shore, LLP is a dominant force in commercial litigation and real estate law.

When a high-profile securities investor defrauded countless corporations on Wall Street, Ganfer & Shore attorneys took a different approach from other litigators. Rather than suing the investor, as the other 49 plaintiffs’ attorneys did, the Ganfer & Shore team sued one of his family members instead. “We collected 100 cents on the dollar, and no one else did,” says Managing Partner Steven Shore. “We look for creative ways to attack problems in order to get results for our clients.”

The firm has a wide-ranging commercial litigation practice that includes representation of major financial institutions, real estate developers, retailers, and parties involved in complex title insurance disputes and other commercial enterprises.

Ganfer & Shore also has a sophisticated real estate transactional practice. Partner Steven Ganfer explains, “We are counsel and special counsel to large institutions and major law firms, and we’re one of the best-known firms in the City in cooperative and condominium law.” Adds partner Matthew J. Leeds, “The real estate group routinely advises clients in the conveyance, leasing and financing of properties, and is frequently involved in the transfer of hundreds of ‘unsold’ apartment units and in the purchase and sale of retail and office buildings and high-end residences.”

Ganfer & Shore attorneys are known for their experience and high-quality client representation. These traits, coupled with reasonable hourly rates and efficient case staffing, are what clients deserve.
