About Our Firm
Experience that Makes a Difference
The beginnings of the firm started in 1968 by Rene L. Basile, Esq., a trusted and sought-after Corporate Tax Attorney to a major global telecommunications company (International Telephone & Telegraph, Inc.) as well as the largest public accounting firm in the world (Arthur Andersen LLP). Mr. Basile's focus was on tax implications and effects on business operations and transactions at the local, state, federal and international levels.
Today, our firm provides litigation and restructuring services and counsel to public companies on the OTC Markets, NASDAQ, and the NYSE. Our firms' services include representing private and public companies in complex financial and securities litigation in federal and state courts around the country as well providing transactional services in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, employment, compliance, and vendor contracting.
In continuing the commitment to focus on business law and related matters, this firm maintains the belief that an attorney should be a key business advisor, as well as a legal technician.
Our attorneys include former senior federal and state prosecutors, federal judges law clerks and executives at public companies and are dedicated provide a business-focused and practical approach to problem solving. We use our considerable experiences to provide our clients with proactive legal services, helping to avoid problems before they arise and taking care of them when they do.
