Founded in 1972, Berg and Duffy, LLP, is Long Island, New York’s, first international law firm. B&D’s senior partner is James P. Duffy, III, who has had a very distinguished international legal career. He has served as Chair of the International Law and Practice Section of the New York State Bar Association (“NYSBA”) and is currently involved in a number of trans-border initiatives for the NYSBA. Berg and Duffy is committed to the highest values of ethics and professionalism. We believe it is not all right to be less than excellent. B&D lawyers seek excellence in everything they do in their professional lives, their personal lives, and in their communities.
B&D specializes in domestic and international banking, finance, securities, business, and commercial legal transactions and offers its services to banks, brokerage firms, businesses, and high net worth individuals. Although small as international firms go, the Firm numbers among its clients some of the largest and best known banks, brokerage firms, and businesses in the world and has assisted them in many important transactions. The Firm’s strength, however, is being able to serve the smaller client who needs competent assistance with its international activities. These smaller clients are often not well suited to the large international law firms where, because of the client’s size, the client may not get the talent and attention of a large law firm’s top people. All Firm clients, large or small, deal directly with the Firm’s top people.
B&D is the exclusive member firm for the Principality of Monaco of Lex Mundi, the world’s leading association of independent law firms.
