We have extensive experience in virtually all disciplines of law affecting businesses and the people who own them including: bankruptcy, corporate and securities, employment, healthcare, intellectual property, litigation, not-for-profits, real estate, tax, and trusts and estates.
Our firm is also nationally recognized for our ‘cutting edge’ sophistication in the fields of: equipment leasing, financial services and lending, creditor’s rights, business succession and estate planning for high net worth individuals, as well as sweepstakes and other forms of promotional and direct marketing in both traditional media and the Internet.
With a team of 50 lawyers, we pride ourselves on being large enough to properly staff even complex matters while at the same time remaining committed to our history and firm culture of providing our clients with the close personal attention they deserve.

Moritt Hock & Hamroff LLP was founded in 1980 by Neil J. Moritt upon his departure as a partner from a large firm with offices in New York City and on Long Island. Alan S. Hock and Marc L. Hamroff joined the firm shortly thereafter, and the steady growth since then is a testament to the quality of legal services consistently provided to our clients.
Initially, the firm’s practice was devoted to the representation of commercial lenders and financial institutions in connection with their litigation, collection, workout and bankruptcy litigation needs in the New York metropolitan area. During this time, the firm also focused on legal issues affecting companies engaged in the business of direct marketing to consumers through promotions, which included direct mail, sweepstakes, contests and space advertising.
By the early 1990’s, the firm evolved into a full-service commercial law firm with extensive experience in the disciplines of general business litigation, equipment leasing, creditors’ rights, bankruptcy law, direct marketing, advertising and new media law, trademark and unfair competition, real estate, business succession planning, and corporate law.
In April 2000, the firm emerged as a leader in tax and trusts and estates after several attorneys from a prominent Long Island based law firm joined Moritt Hock & Hamroff. In January 2005, the firm opened an office on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to better serve its clients. In May 2006 and May 2007 the firm continued to expand its area of practice by establishing a not-for-profit practice area and healthcare practice area.
Throughout the process, the firm has sought to grow intelligently to meet its clients’ needs without outgrowing them. Today, we pride ourselves on being large enough to properly staff each matter, but small enough to continue to provide close, personal attention to each client.
