About the Firm

At Harris Beach, we work hard to ensure we live up to our firm’s vision: “Client Solutions that Exceed Expectations.”

Harris Beach is among the top U.S. law firms as ranked by The National Law Journal. For 160 years our firm has been recognized for being at the forefront of innovation. Reflecting our forward thinking culture, the firm has invested in consulting subsidiaries in order to deliver holistic approaches as needed to the many opportunities and challenges our clients encounter. Clients tell us it is our entrepreneurial view to problem-solving that makes our firm a valuable collaborator. We recognize first and foremost we are in a service profession and make our strongest investments in our people, supplying them with the tools and technology they need to deliver high-quality services to meet our clients’ goals.  
 
Our reach is not limited by our brick and mortar locations.  We mobilize professionals with the best-suited experience to serve clients where they need us, whether regionally, nationally or internationally.  While Harris Beach has a strong office presence throughout New York state and the tristate area, our capabilities extend far beyond. Many of our practices are national in scope. The firm also has a network of regional firms across the county to draw upon. We serve the needs of many foreign companies with their investments across the U.S., including mergers and acquisitions of U.S. entities. For clients making international investments or seeking intellectual property protections, we can access a large international network of law firms we routinely work with and know we can rely upon.  
 
Through the strategic application of our resources, relationships, legal experience and consulting expertise, we build the right team to get the job done for our clients – efficiently and cost-effectively. Every person at Harris Beach is committed to being accessible, productive, responsive and technologically sophisticated to provide the utmost value to our clients.
