Goetz Schenker Blee & Wiederhorn is a full service insurance defense law firm with fully staffed offices in New York City and Livingston, New Jersey. Originally a practice of just four lawyers in 1998, the firm has grown today to over forty attorneys with national and international reputations for providing effective legal advice and representation to insurance companies and self-insured corporations. Goetz Schenker Blee & Wiederhorn devotes a substantial portion of its practice to matters involving premises liability, product liability, toxic torts, construction defect, lead, mold and asbestos contamination, construction (including violations of New York State Labor Law), motor vehicle liability, first party claims, fraud investigations, and subrogation. Additionally, the firm maintains a highly distinguished appellate practice, and has argued various cases before the New York Court of Appeals, the state’s highest court.
Since its founding, the firm has relied on several core beliefs: hard work, responsive and timely communication with clients, and the early formation of litigation plans designed to outline strategic goals and methods of achievement. These beliefs form the backbone of Goetz Schenker Blee & Wiederhorn’s continued success in the constantly changing, competitive landscape of the metropolitan legal industry.
In addition to its legal work, Goetz Schenker Blee & Wiederhorn offers educational activities and training seminars to each of its clients, specifically tailored to fit any need. The firm’s attorneys, many of which have worked previously in the public sector or for major corporations, strive to ensure disciplined compliance with client guidelines, and explore all options, including Alternative Dispute Resolution, whenever practical.
