LKLSG was founded on the premise that large, complex matters do not require hordes of lawyers and should not entail the exorbitant cost structure associated with large law firms. We pride ourselves on our passionate team of professionals, our creative and innovative thinking, and our cost-effective services to solve complex business and financial issues. LKLSG’s founders have worked together for several decades, establishing a firm based upon dedication, hard work, collegiality, “out-of-the-box” thinking, efficiency, and most importantly, putting our clients first.
The Firm has been nationally-recognized by U.S. News & World Report – Best Lawyers, placing the Firm among the best local law firms in Miami and even earning national rankings.
The Firm has been recognized by the South Florida Legal Guide as a “Top Law Firm” in South Florida. The Firm has received a 5.0 rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which is the highest rating available. Members of LKLSG are honored annually by their peers and clients in “Best Lawyers in America,” “Chambers USA,” “Super Lawyers,” South Florida Legal Guide’s “Top Lawyers,” Florida Trend’s “Legal Elite,” and by essentially every other publication and attorney rating agency.
We are one of the few South Florida firms that can successfully handle a “bet the company” lawsuit. Founding members Lawrence A. Kellogg, Jeffrey C. Schneider, and Stuart I. Grossman have collectively tried dozens of cases involving financial disputes, commercial transactions, theft of trade secrets, intellectual property, violations of state and federal securities laws, business torts, fraud, class actions, and employment disputes in state and federal courts, bankruptcy courts, and arbitrations. For the last three decades, founding members David M. Levine and Thomas R. Lehman have also been renowned for their expertise in handling complex, six to nine-figure bankruptcies.
Founding members David M. Levine, Jeffrey C. Schneider, and Lawrence A. Kellogg have been pioneers of some of Florida’s largest and most publicized federal equity receiverships, whether as receivers or representing receivers, in SEC, CFTC, and FTC proceedings.
In addition to our specialties in complex commercial litigation, bankruptcy, and receiverships, we practice in the following areas of the law: securities and enforcement proceedings, insurance, labor and employment, professional malpractice, construction law, real estate, class actions, consumer protection, intellectual property, lender liability, probate and trust litigation, partnership and corporate disputes, trade secrets, and fraud in all of its myriad of forms.
