Practice Areas

Trusts & Estates

Our estate planning lawyers help clients with all aspects of estate planning, including wills and trusts, incapacity planning, and succession planning for family businesses. We strive to meet each client’s unique planning goals while minimizing estate and transfer taxes. We also help our clients navigate the emotional and legal challenges associated with administering estates and trusts, and assisting elderly and disabled family members.

Family Law

Wyse Kadish helps individuals, couples, and families navigate challenging family law issues. We bring not only deep expertise, but also patience and empathy to these trying situations. We help clients resolve a range of family law issues, including divorce, custody disputes, paternity suits, prenuptial and domestic partnership agreements, and other matters. Our approaches include litigation, negotiation, mediation, and collaborative services.

Litigation

At Wyse Kadish, we help our clients address disputes by providing exceptional prosecution or defense for complex legal matters. For every engagement, we listen carefully, assess the matter, and help our clients weigh the options. In addition to trying cases in the courtroom, we have extensive experience guiding clients through negotiations, mediation, and arbitration. Over the past two decades, we have successfully handled litigation in a broad variety of areas, including business and contract disputes, employment claims, injury and damage claims, construction defect cases, and will and trusts contests.

Real Estate

Wyse Kadish has extensive experience helping clients buy, manage, and sell commercial, residential, and multi-tenant real estate. Our services include forming entities, negotiating and preparing contracts, and closing deals. We also help clients address legal issues tied to property ownership and management, including boundary disputes, lease terminations, and damage claims.

Business and Corporate Transactions

At Wyse Kadish, we work closely with our business clients to understand and meet their objectives. We offer legal counsel on transactions, business entity formation, regulatory compliance, asset purchases, stock sales, and other transactions. Wyse Kadish provides responsive, cost-effective legal services to start-ups, established companies, and professional practice groups.

Architectural & Construction Law

We have a long history of helping architects, owners and contractors negotiate contracts and resolve construction-related disputes.

Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy

We help clients collect and secure payment of debts owed to them and, if necessary, protect their rights in Bankruptcy Court.

Employment Law

At Wyse Kadish, we know that business leaders want to focus on growth and operations—not legal matters. We enable businesses to move forward successfully by minimizing employment risks. We help our business clients comply with all EEO, wage and hour laws; draft and enforce contracts and agreements; and maintain a fair, equitable workplace. While our compliance programs help prevent employment disputes, we have a strong track record defending our clients against claims, lawsuits, and regulatory audits.

Condominium and Homeowner Association (HOA) Law

At Wyse Kadish, we have represented homeowner associations since 1957. We have extensive experience with the particular laws which pertain to homeowner and condominium owner associations, but also other fields of law which are frequently involved in association affairs such as civil litigation, bankruptcy, real estate, corporations, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Fair Housing Act. We pride ourselves on quality service for all association needs.

Intellectual Property Law

Wyse Kadish provides practical expertise with trademark, copyright, trade secret, and e-commerce matters in a wide array of industries.

Mediation

Wyse Kadish attorneys can help clients navigate challenging family law issues, will contests, and other estate problems, disputes in employment law, and closely-held business matters with mediation services.
