Building a successful law firm, especially in an environment as competitive as New York City, requires years of dedication, tireless effort, and constant relationship-building. When it's time to transition out of practice, for whatever reason, you don't want all of that work to disappear. Your efforts have created goodwill and value over the years, and you deserve to extract some of that value out of the practice you've created.
Winding down a practice has personal, as well as practical, considerations. Your practice is more than case files, and when you retire, you're leaving behind more than file cabinets full of paper. You're leaving the clients who have come to rely on your counsel, many of them for years or even decades. You want to be able to look them in the eye and assure them that they will be represented as well in the future as you have done in the past.
There are many ways to transition out of legal practice, some decisive, others gradual. Whether you prefer to make a swift exit to enjoy your retirement or make a geographic move, or wind down your practice slowly over time, the Law Offices of Andreas Vasilatos, PLLC can help. We work with other attorneys in the five boroughs of New York City to help them transition out of practice in the way that works best for them.
Each sale or succession plan we develop is unique, based on the circumstances and goals of the retiring attorney. We will collaborate with you on a plan that will serve your needs and those of your clients, whether that means a direct buyout of your practice, coming alongside your practice on an "of counsel" basis and gradually taking cases over, or some other configuration.
At the Law Offices of Andreas Vasilatos, PLLC, we understand that you want the clients who have placed their confidence in you to be able to have equal faith in their new attorney. We are an established law firm with a solid reputation in New York City as well as Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester Counties.

We take pride in offering our clients effective advocacy and personal attention, and we look forward to doing the same for yours.
We invite you to contact us to discuss your needs regarding law firm sale or succession. We look forward to working together to develop a plan that is right for you.
