About Us

Matalon ♦ Shweky ♦ Elman is a boutique law firm with expertise and experience in all phases of commercial litigation and transactions. MSE attorneys have extraordinary credentials and take pride in engineering creative solutions and approaches to their clients’ most intractable problems. MSE has successfully prosecuted and defended litigations, arbitrations, and appeals in a wide variety of practice areas and forums and has frequently litigated high-profile matters.

As a testament to our standing among those who know best, some of the nation’s most prestigious law firms turn to us when they are sued for professional malpractice and related claims.

Although we are skilled trial and appellate lawyers, MSE often seeks solutions—through mediation and negotiation—that help our clients resolve cases quickly without going to trial. In fact, two of our partners serve on the panel of mediators of the New York County Supreme Court Commercial Division. But when trial is inevitable, our experience and skill as fierce advocates in the courtroom takes center-stage, proven by our virtually undefeated record at trial.

When providing corporate counseling and transactional services, our DNA as commercial litigators enables us to bring a unique perspective to clients’ issues and helps avoid—rather than merely solve—problems. In our litigation practice, we see daily how poorly-drafted agreements or the failure to anticipate issues leads to disputes that could have been avoided. We help our clients sidestep those controversies by ensuring that the corporate documents are done right.

All MSE lawyers are big-firm expatriates, yet our size enables us to be agile and flexible. Since we are not shackled by the administrative bureaucracy or exorbitant overhead of a huge firm, we are open to creative fee arrangements that reward results.
