The SSRGA law firm continues its expansion
Schwartz Sladkus Reich Greenberg Atlas LLP (SSRGA), a New York-based full-service law firm, announced that Turek Roth Grossman LLP will join the firm effective October 17, 2022.
Turek Roth Grossman, also based in New York, will practice as Schwartz Sladkus Reich Greenberg Atlas LLP.
“We are delighted to welcome the seasoned attorneys of Turek Roth Grossman to the SSRGA,” said Jeffrey Schwartz, co-founder and managing partner of the SSRGA. “Their depth of experience and commitment to providing superior legal services will bring enormous value to our clients.”
The announcement comes weeks after SSRGA announced an expansion into South Florida, merging with two companies there and establishing an office in Boca Raton, and the opening of a new SSRGA office at the office in Long Island in Port Washington, NY.
The firm said the expansions strengthen its appellate, administrative law and criminal appeals services and add to SSRGA’s existing practice areas in real estate, healthcare, nonprofit, litigation, business and corporations, matrimonial and family law, and trusts and real estate law.
Turek Roth Grossman’s real estate law and litigation practice serves a range of clients, including co-op and condominium boards, developers, construction companies, commercial entities, real estate agents, hotel operators, service providers, services, financial institutions, trusts and individuals.
Allen M. Turek, Jeremy S. Roth, Jason A. Grossman and Gaddi Goren of Turek Roth Grossman will become partners in SSRGA, while Jeffrey Gibilaro will join the firm as an associate. All attorneys will operate from SSRGA’s corporate headquarters at 444 Madison Avenue.
“Turek Roth Grossman attorneys are widely recognized as the leading providers of large-scale real estate and litigation services,” said Steven Sladkus, co-founder and partner of SSRGA. “The firm has a strong track record of success, shares SSRGA’s client-focused culture, and perfectly complements SSRGA’s existing practice areas.”
“We are beyond excited to join the SSRGA,” said Turek. “The SSRGA platform will expand our ability to provide comprehensive services to our customers.”
