Firm Overview

Schlam Stone congratulates its team of Jeffrey Eilender, Jonathan Mazer, Samuel Butt and Michael Marcus for an astounding victory in the Appellate Division, Second Department in Chiu v. Chiu, a business divorce and minority interest valuation case. We were hired by Winston Chiu (a minority owner of a commercial building, whose interest was misappropriated by his brother the majority owner) after prior counsel lost his first trial and a $200,000 plus judgment was awarded against Winston. Our team got the first judgment vacated and on re-trial got him an award of over $1 million. Just days ago, on appeal, the Schlam Stone team had that award increased to over $4.2 million.

Criminal Defense

Our Practice

Our practice comprises all aspects of civil litigation, government and internal corporate investigations, and transactional and legal counseling. Whether through litigation or corporate counseling, we are often asked to solve our clients' most urgent needs.
Civil Litigation & Appeals
Our litigation practice focuses on complex commercial litigation. We fight to preserve and enhance the value of our clients' businesses by representing them in major, complex litigations. Often, we can achieve a decisive victory at the beginning of a case.

Government & Internal Investigations, White Collar Criminal Defense
Our government investigations and white collar criminal defense practice provides clients with aggressive, nuanced representation during what is often the most difficult and pivotal moment of the client's life. Having been prosecutors ourselves, we bring insight and experience in dealing with the government to every representation. We have an experienced cadre of trial lawyers, but our focus is on achieving the most effective outcome for our clients, so our goal is normally the fast and favorable resolution of criminal matters well before trial.

Corporate Counseling & Transactions
Our transactional and legal counseling practice focuses on helping our clients deal with transactions and organizational issues that affect their continued existence and profitability. Our transactional lawyers bring years of experience doing complex deals-both as outside lawyers and in-house general counsel-to bear on our clients' legal problems. This gives them the perspective necessary to achieve simple, cost-effective and value-enhancing solutions.

We know that our clients' needs are best met when served by a skilled and business-savvy lawyer who understands the client's business and who deals with a matter from beginning to end. We are committed to forming a long-term partnership with our clients to meet their business needs both now and in the future.
