Garfunkel Wild, P.C. (GW) was founded more than thirty years ago with a single purpose in mind — to attend to the unique business and legal needs of clients in the health care industry. We have never wavered from that commitment. No other law firm in the greater metropolitan area represents as large and diverse a group of clients in the health care industry. To better serve our clients, GW expanded beyond New York State and opened our office in New Jersey in 2000 and an office in Connecticut in 2007.
While our initial focus was on the health care industry, GW has grown to meet the demands and challenges facing our many clients in other industries. To serve our broad client base, we have not simply become a larger law firm. Rather, we have added practice groups and individual attorneys to expand and compliment GW's expertise.
Today, GW is well situated to meet the legal and business needs of our clients in complex transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, public and private financing, construction, high-tech equipment acquisition and financing, significant federal and state litigation, environmental, creditors' rights and sophisticated estate planning. In addition, we are able to efficiently serve small businesses and individual clients in a full range of areas such as contracts, commercial transactions, real estate, environmental, creditors' rights, litigation, wills and estate administration.
We have maintained our preeminence by working hard to adapt to our client’s needs in an ever-changing business, regulatory and competitive environment. Our clients receive counsel that is, first and foremost, legally correct, pragmatic and cost effective. GW instills this work ethic in all our attorneys. We provide the highest level of personal service to our clients regardless of the size of the client or the size of the matter.
