Firm Details

Neal Gerber Eisenberg is a leading law firm dedicated to handling sophisticated matters for entrepreneurs, public companies, and private businesses and their owners. Our attorneys provide legal business solutions to public and private entities of all types—including Fortune 100 companies, financial institutions, nonprofits and high net worth individuals—in connection with domestic and global business transactions and litigation. The firm has built more than thirty years of trusted partnerships with clients that span the globe, and we meet each unique client need with the same personalized service and collaboration that provide the most practical solutions for every matter.

Our greatest asset is our people. Attorneys and staff at every level aspire to cultivate long-lasting relationships among one another and with each client. This mindset helps to advance our shared mission to be the best providers of legal services. To every matter, we bring a client-focused approach. First, we listen to our clients and learn about their challenges. We then deploy our collective legal aptitude, experience and industry knowledge to provide sound and cost-effective legal counsel.


Shunning the “merger mania” strategy of those law firms that adhere to a “bigger is better no matter what” philosophy, the firm, instead, has chosen a calculated path of growth based on adding the “best of the best” attorneys. The firm is recognized nationally and internationally for its knowledge in many practice areas. In 2017, Chambers USA ranked 12 of our practice groups and 22 individual attorneys.


The firm’s culture of teamwork, focus on client needs and practical solutions, and willingness to adapt quickly to meet marketplace demands are key factors behind our success. In addition to making a positive difference for our clients, our lawyers strive to do the same for their communities. The firm encourages its lawyers to dedicate substantial personal time and effort to pro bono work and community service.
