As the New York Office of Zumpano Patricios, ZPP’s lawyers and counselors have a peerless history of successfully resolving our business clients’ disputes at every level of litigation and arbitration, including through trial, final hearing, and appeal. We are regularly retained by our clients, including individuals and private and public companies, both defendant and plaintiff, to handle their most important and complex matters and be the.  We are both thought-leaders in our substantive areas of practice, and zealous litigators, advocates, and trial attorneys that fight and fight hard for our clients’ interests.

Our senior litigators having tried or arbitrated dozens of domestic and international cases, and unlike many of our peers, we actually try cases to verdict, judgment or award, throughout New York, South Florida, and nationally and in cross-border settings. Our proven track record of success speaks for itself.  We also help shape the law in the states in which we practice through a successful appellate practice, and we are proud that trial and appellate courts have held that our matters involve novel issues and have published opinions about our cases.

Our senior partners include the most recent global head of litigation and employment for a leading diversified Wall Street financial services firm, a leading authority in the cutting-edge area of AI and ethics, including robotics and a bet-the-company litigator, and a former Special Assistant for National Security Affairs for Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, and Legal Advisor for the National Security Council

Our clients’ goals are of paramount importance to us. As business counselors first, we consider all the options, first evaluating whether litigation can be avoided through alternative measures. We develop a winning litigation strategy with our clients at the outset (fine-tuned as the case progresses), and then strive to put our clients in the best-leveraged position at every stage in the litigation process for them to decide whether to settle on favorable terms or try the case.

We also understand that our clients are more likely to obtain optimal results if we are prepared to try the case successfully if necessary — and counsel on the other side of the dispute knows it.   Our litigation team architects our cases, implement our strategies, and strives to maximize client outcomes. We are backed by an array of capabilities and resources, which allows us to represent clients across borders, industries, and practice areas. We utilize state-of-the-art technology to help us better serve our clients.
