BROOKLYN, N.Y., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move that reflects both the stature and sizable business opportunities that have become synonymous with New York City's most populous borough, the law firm of Abrams Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara and Wolf, LLP, today announced the official opening of a newly constructed 23,000 square-foot office complex on the seventeenth floor of One Metro Tech Center in downtown Brooklyn.
The new office brings together attorneys who have been practicing in four locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan. The consolidation results in a complement of 22 Abrams Fensterman attorneys and 16 support staff. 37 percent of the employees at One Metro Tech live in Brooklyn. In the past year, Abrams Fensterman has grown, State-wide, to over 80 attorneys.
"Brooklyn's deep and rich history has given birth to one of the most exciting commercial and residential markets in the country," said Howard Fensterman, Managing Partner of Abrams Fensterman. "With business growth putting Brooklyn at the center of national advances in innovative technology, food manufacturing, the real estate and restaurant industries, the arts, film and television, architecture, applied design and the performing arts, we have watched our Brooklyn practice expand exponentially. Under the leadership of Frank Carone, a native of Brooklyn, Executive Partner of the firm, and head of our Brooklyn office, we have grown organically for the past five years and most recently, by merging some of the most respected Brooklyn-based legal talent into our firm," Fensterman added.
Over the past year, sixteen attorneys from Caruso, Caruso & Branda, the office of Lawrence F. DiGiovanna and Michael Coscia, and most recently Gerber & Gerber have joined our team at Abrams Fensterman, enhancing the firm's leadership in matrimonial, real estate, and insurance defense as well as employment and labor law.
According to Howard Fensterman, Brooklyn benefits from a unique, multi-cultural population that translates into one of the most creative and productive work forces in the country. "For those who have lived and worked in Brooklyn for the better part of their lives, there is no mystery to the surge in the borough's economy and attractiveness. Brooklyn natives and those who gravitate to this exciting borough are hard working, creative and well equipped to take on the challenges of today's complex, global marketplace," Fensterman pointed out.
Abrams Fensterman's Brooklyn team is especially experienced in counseling clients and litigating matters involving land use and zoning at the administrative, state and federal levels. Additionally, Abrams Fensterman's Brooklyn office helps clients in need of assistance in dealing with government institutions and the firm helps clients investigate or litigate the complex issues regularly associated with these matters as well as exploration of partnerships with government agencies or entities.
"As the largest law firm in the borough, Abrams Fensterman has the perfect combination of sophisticated legal minds, knowledge of the local and political landscape, and the celebrated Brooklyn-grit to help our clients succeed commercially and with their personal matters," added Fensterman. "It is for this reason, and with a sense of tremendous responsibility and humility that our Brooklyn team has adopted the slogan, 'WE ARE BROOKLYN – LAW'".
