The Kagen Law Firm Reviews

- Reviewed on October 06, 2018

Advice to law firm management: The firm should have a management committee, with four attorneys, assigning areas of responsibility to each one. That person could take initiative to modernize the firm in ways that would improve working conditions, efficiency, knowledge management resources to leverage for future work or business development. And 360-degree reviews. In the absence of HR, this would add oversight to keep in check the managing partner. And would actually make the firm better as a business. It would be better at the business of law, and thereby attract clients and talent to make the firm a better place for attorneys interesting in practicing law.

Pros: The firm is managed by a person who treats everybody with whom he interacts like trash. He was screaming at the cleaning ladies for closing a door after business hours. For an hour. He discriminated against attorneys raising a new family. And he provides zero benefits on any level.

Cons: No transparency. The managing partner badmouthed other attorneys at the firm, his paralegal, and his clients. He behaves in s manner that should not be tolerated by any person who is unable to maintain perspective and ignore him while looking to transition elsewhere, immediately.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Stuart Kagen should be avoided for the reasons above. But it is his firm and he needs to be kept in the loop to maintain his ego and to get more assignments.

Favorite Things About this Firm: The firm’s technology consultant is top notch. He takes care of the attorneys, is friendly and helpful, and on the cutting edge of cyber security and document management resources. He has advised improvements that any other firm would undertake as a matter of course. But these improvements get ignored.

We have represented clients in high-stakes securities litigation and business disputes since 1995. We have achieved many favorable results through negotiation, arbitration and trial. We use that knowledge and experience to seek the best possible result for every client. Disputes over money, property, ideas and control are complex. They are multilayered and often emotionally charged as well as technically intricate. At the Kagen Law Firm in midtown Manhattan, our attorneys respect that complexity, attack it and know how to cut through it. Our attorneys' credentials and decades of experience at top-tier law firms are key assets. Another asset is our determination to earn the best possible outcomes for our clients while rewarding their trust by delivering superior-quality legal services at affordable rates. Founding principal Stuart Kagen is a Harvard Law School graduate and attorney Daniel Cohen graduated from the University of Michigan Law School. Since the mid-1990s, we have been making our marks as negotiators and litigators who get results.
