Herzog, a partner in the firm’s Management and Professional Liability Practice Group, focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation in both federal and state courts as well as in various alternative dispute resolution (ADR) forums. He has been counsel of record in nearly 50 reported decisions, and has had primary responsibility for all stages of matters from inception through appeal.

Ron also devotes a portion of his practice to counseling and defending other attorneys. He has successfully obtained defense jury verdicts, summary judgments, and dismissals in matters involving claims of attorney malpractice, breach of duty of loyalty, and aiding and abetting improper actions of trustees, among other issues.

For the last decade, Ron has presented at the annual ALI-ABA seminar on accountants’ liability. He is highly regarded among his peers, and regularly appears on lists such as Metro New York Super Lawyers.
