Resolving Disputes and the Issues That Cause Them With Creativity and Determination

Since our founding in 1983, we have prided ourselves on getting the job done for our clients facing complex litigation challenges.

Led by Michael Brown, our focused litigation team cost-effectively represents our clients in critical litigation issues in trial and appellate courts at both federal and state levels, before administrative tribunals, in arbitration, in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and in proceedings involving government agencies.

“Mike [Brown] is an extremely effective and tough litigator. He’s also a strategic thinker both inside and outside the courtroom.” – Don DeCarlo, Director, AmTrust Financial Services, Inc. and former Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Travelers Group

Ohrenstein & Brown’s attorneys focus on those matters that lie at the heart of the dispute, identifying the core interests that drive the conflict and developing strategies to resolve them, often creatively, in a manner that reduces costs while increasing the likelihood of a successful result.

“We hire O&B when we need aggressive litigators to get us through difficult matters. For a case where we need focused attention, brainpower, and aggressiveness, Mike Brown is the first guy I would think of.”– Ivy S. Fischer, Esq., General Counsel of HUB International Northeast Ltd.

Whether we reach a resolution through negotiation, through the courts, or through mediation or arbitration, we guide our clients through every phase of the dispute, always focused on achieving their goals as expeditiously and effectively as possible.
