Our Firm

More Than Trusted Counselors – An Indispensable Client Resource

Valuing communication and personalized client service above all else, New York-based Gellis Law Group is a highly focused, boutique Firm providing comprehensive corporate, commercial, international, and intellectual property legal services through a wide network of domestic and international associates. Our dynamic team has built its reputation by nurturing long-term relationships with clients. Responsibility for the quality of our work invariably rests in the hands of a few experienced counselors, all easily accessible to our clients.

Aside from years of in-house experience of the founding managing partner, the success of the Firm is based on a network of highly skilled attorneys concentrating in international trade, commercial disputes, regulatory compliance, patent, trademark and copyright matters.

We are not just another group of attorneys handling matters for outside clients. We position ourselves as outsourced corporate counsel – trusted business partners, sharing our clients’ goals and strategies and offering them the invaluable insight of our experienced practitioners.

All of our lead attorneys and counsel served and – some continue to serve – as in-house legal counsel to highly successful corporations. We are not just another group of attorneys handling matters for outside clients. We position ourselves as outsourced corporate counsel – trusted business partners, sharing our clients’ goals and strategies and offering them the invaluable insight of our experienced practitioners.

While Gellis Law Group provides comprehensive legal services to a wide range of clients – from large international oil and gas development and logistics companies, to medium and developing businesses, and professional practices – we concentrate on three types of services:

START-UPS AND TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES

We offer prudent, budget-focused guidance to these growing ventures, providing much-needed strategic legal advice to help them get off the ground: from establishing suitable corporate entities to prioritizing clients’ legal work to meet short- and long-term business needs in the most efficient manner. Our services include comprehensive intellectual property support, counseling on matters pertaining to financing of operations, and negotiating with investors.

OUTSIDE COUNSEL FOR SMALL AND MID-SIZE COMPANIES

Handling the entire range of tasks typically managed by an in-house counsel, we provide these clients with comprehensive corporate and commercial legal support and regulatory compliance services. These include: drafting agreements with employees, contractors, and vendors; negotiating business and corporate transactions; reviewing commercial lease agreements; and guiding them through mergers, acquisitions, expansion or attrition of lines of business.

INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS AND MATTERS

Our Firm works with a diverse, sophisticated group of corporate clients, advising them on cross-border transactions, market entry, optimization of corporate structures, international licensing, as well as import and export customs compliance matters.

Our team’s integrity, attention to detail, years of experience, accessibility, flexibility, and proven expertise mean that once clients start working with Gellis Law Group, they soon become committed partners relying on us as their essential strategic resource. Clients consistently continue relying on our services as their operations grow and evolve through business cycles. While our caseload is diverse, we take a consistent, proactive approach that helps our clients avoid business disputes, stay within their budgets, and find solutions to meet their long-term legal needs.
