The Law Office of Steven Riker is a New York-based law firm which provides high-quality legal services at cost-effective rates to a diversified clientele in the New York metropolitan area. The firm maintains a general commercial practice, with an emphasis on commercial and business litigation, real estate transactions, contract negotiation, corporate formation, and hotel/hospitality law. The firm represents individuals and entities in actions involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, shareholder disputes, partnership disputes, specific enforcement of real estate contracts, landlord-tenant disputes, mechanic’s liens, brokerage disputes, employment disputes, and Surrogate’s Court and estate matters. The firm also represents owners, developers, landlords, and tenants in commercial and residential real estate acquisitions, lease transactions, and related financing transactions. The firm counsels businesses in a broad range of matters, including the formation of limited liability companies, corporations, and partnerships, the preparation and negotiation of operating agreements, shareholders’ agreements, and corporate governance documents, and obtains employment-based visas for their workers. The firm also represents individuals and fiduciaries in various Surrogate Court’s proceedings involving wills, trusts, and estates.

Specific areas of practice include:

Dedication, Practicality, and Integrity

Steven Riker, Esq., the principal of the firm, is well-known as a tireless, dedicated, and highly effective advocate for his clients. He devotes great time and effort to both educate his clients, and advocate on behalf of their interests, and takes a practical, common-sense approach to each representation. At each initial client meeting, Mr. Riker will review the new matter analytically, and in significant detail. At such time, he will give an honest and straightforward assessment of the case or transaction, develop a strategy, and gauge the probability of success, forever mindful of the costs involved. While legal fees cannot always be predicted with certainty, Mr. Riker believes that a discussion of the likely effort needed to achieve his client’s goals should be had at the inception of the representation, to ensure that the client is well-informed, and further, to ensure that the client’s goals can realistically be met in a cost-effective and minimally disruptive manner, whether to his/her business or personal life. All options are explored when addressing business disputes, including litigation, settlement, and mediation, and all decisions are made in full consultation with the client. Thus, at the heart of each and every representation, is a principled belief that open and honest communications are necessary for a successful outcome, and Mr. Riker encourages and fosters such an environment with all of his clients.

Since being admitted to practice law in 1994, Mr. Riker’s reputation for integrity and vigorous representation of his clients has steadily grown throughout the New York metropolitan area. For this reason, he frequently receives referrals from other attorneys, court personnel, and even judges. Mr. Riker also receives court appointments from Supreme Court and Surrogate’s Court justices to represent minors and incapacitated individuals in litigation matters. Due to his zealous advocacy and scrupulous decorum, Mr. Riker has even been called upon to represent former justices, prominent attorneys, and their families in their own legal disputes. As a consequence of his recognized knowledge and expertise, Mr Riker has also been requested to lecture at Continuing Legal Education seminars on litigation and real estate topics to other lawyers.

From the small business owner to Fortune 500 companies and well-known public figures, the Law Office of Steven Riker provides all of its clients with the same level of dedication and diligence.
