Our Practice

The New York office’s relationships with the business community and key New York metropolitan area institutions have been the catalyst for our continued growth and expansion to our position at the vanguard of the world’s leading law firms. Weil's four departments — Corporate, Litigation, Business Finance & Restructuring, and Tax, Benefits, and Executive Compensation — form the core of the New York office.

Achievements, Community Service and Pro Bono

Weil was recognized by the New York Legal Aid Society with its 2005 Pro Bono Publico and Public Service Law Firm Award, the Society’s highest law firm award, for our “outstanding pro bono commitment to The Legal Aid Society and its clients.” The firm has been a long-time supporter of the work of the Society and our lawyers and legal staff have contributed innumerable hours on crucial matters referred to us by Legal Aid. For instance, we represented prisoners who were denied medical treatment and abused, we counseled micro-entrepreneurs and non-profits regarding new and growing businesses to revitalize and sustain neighborhoods and we assisted foster children in expediting their adoptions. In addition, Weil partners successfully led a team of New York office attorneys in assisting with the financial restructuring of the Society.

Weil further expanded its pro bono commitment to Legal Aid by undertaking the representation of elderly and disabled immigrants as well as low-income families threatened with eviction in Khrapunskiy v. Doar. The firm participated as invaluable co-counsel in this action and helped to establish the right of New York's poor, elderly and disabled immigrants to receive federal and state disability benefits.
