Firm Details

Zuckerman Spaeder enjoys a reputation as one of the nation’s premier litigation firms. We have earned this reputation by successfully managing high stakes litigation disputes for over four decades. We are known for our trial skill and also for our ability to work effectively outside the courtroom to advance our clients’ positions with prosecutors, regulators, and opposing counsel. Our lawyers routinely handle high-profile cases in white collar defense, government investigations, complex commercial disputes, health care litigation, professional ethics disputes, class actions and a range of other matters. We pursue cutting edge legal theories and find creative solutions to complex legal problems. When the stakes are highest, clients count on Zuckerman Spaeder.

At our core, we are a tight-knit partnership of inspired and experienced trial lawyers.  We regularly try cases throughout the country in matters that capture headlines, change industries, and advance the cause of justice for our individual clients. When it comes to recognitions and awards for the legal work of partners, our boutique firm is frequently ahead of law firms many times our size. Over a third of our lawyers have served in government positions as prosecutors, public defenders, regulators or government officials presiding over important policy issues which gives us valuable insight and experience in trial tactics, criminal investigations, and regulatory matters. 

Our firm has thrived as a result of our litigation success, but also because of our commitment to treating our clients with personal attention, dedication and respect. 

Unlike many law firms, we take a lean approach to staffing cases – using focused teams of experienced attorneys where possible who interact often with our clients, delivering quality work product and customized service. No client is taken for granted, and every client receives hands-on attention from partners who ‎personally ensure work quality, efficiency, and results.
