A Message from Ronald S. Bienstock
Over the last thirty years, we have been invited to join numerous larger law firms, seeking to have us merge our national entertainment, media and IP practices with theirs. Up until now, those offers, while interesting, were not a good fit.
Recently, however, we have been approached by what we feel is the right firm with the right fit. After much deliberation and with great excitement, I can announce that, as of May 16, 2016, Bienstock and Michael will be merging with Scarinci Hollenbeck, sh-law.com. Our merger gives us new and broader practice areas, including: commercial real estate law, cyber security law, environmental and land use law, insurance recovery and liability law, labor law, public law, trusts and estates law, and complex litigation (see the attached for the full description of the new firm’s practice areas).
Most members of our firm are making the move with us. In making this move, we will now have a total of 60 attorneys and over 60 staff members, which will enable us to work with you much more efficiently. I will be partner/chair of the entertainment practice area and co-chair of the IP/media practice group at the firm’s main office in Lyndhurst, NJ. Jill Michael will be a partner in the NYC office. We will be bringing with us our passionate representation style and devoted work for all of our clients.
Although we will be in a larger office, our business practices with you will remain the same. We value the relationships we have developed over the past 30 years and we appreciate your trust. The same “boutique,” personal feel of our firm will remain exactly as it has always been.
Anticipating that there may be some questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at our Hackensack office.
You may continue to contact me at my email, email@example.com or at my new office (201) 896-4100 as of May 16th.
