In addition to its general practice, Sullivan PC has been fortunate to develop a reputation as one of the more sophisticated law firms representing clients faced with complex problems with a public sector component. The areas of greatest success are construction law, environmental law, integrity and litigation challenges to government. Every year Sullivan PC achieves at least one watershed result in one of its many challenges of government. The accomplishments of the firm’s lawyers range from: the most successful track record representing companies seeking payment for work at the World Trade Center disaster; to the dismissal of the first environmental criminal prosecutions brought by Robert Kennedy, Jr. and the Brooklyn DA; to the representation of the region’s heavy trucking industry in persuading the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to maintain access to the Throgs Neck Bridge; to achieving the one of the more significant court decision in liquor licensing preventing the closure of controversial nightclubs, restaurants and wineries.
Sullivan PC represents many national and public companies. However, the firm’s general practice has benefited greatly from its initial client base of owner/operators of $5-$200 million businesses. Owner/operators are typically very demanding with little patience for legal work which, although excellent, goes on forever and does not improve the company’s bottom line. This constant client demand for timely, cost-effective legal production has developed a firm ethic that ensures the practical serving of a client’s needs.
