Dallas, Texas (PressExposure) January 31, 2008 -- Diamond McCarthy, a boutique law firm specializing in the investigation, litigation, and cost-effective resolution of complex business disputes on a local, national, and international stage. announces the opening of its new office in New York City. Taking almost 10,000 square feet on the 39th floor of the New York Times Building, the groundbreaking new headquarters of the New York Times on Manhattan's West Side.
As Managing Partner Allan Diamond explained, "We wanted our New York office to reflect our firm's reputation and values." The New York Times Building has been heralded as architecturally innovative and part of the eco-friendly building revolution, which is consistent with our firm's reputation for legal innovation. The Firm's offices have floor to ceiling unobstructed panoramic views looking to the East, South and West at the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, southern Manhattan's bridges, the Hudson River and the Statute of Liberty They are quite simply, breath-taking.
Founded by a group of attorneys, Diamond McCarthy is committed to providing innovative legal solutions to their clients' most complex problems - wherever those problems arise. From their inception, they have addressed the most significant and complicated issues facing their clients across the Continent, through the Caribbean, and into Europe.
Their national and international presence continues to expand, with their international docket including objectives for clients from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, the Cayman Islands, the Republic of Colombia, and the Philippines, as well as their domestic docket that includes matters pending before federal and state trial and appellate courts from coast to coast. No matter where their clients may be or where their problems may arise, Diamond McCarthy is committed to solving its clients' problems and getting effective results.
Richard Janvey, who has been practicing in New York for the past 35+ years (formerly with Debevoise & Plimpton, LLP, Arthur Young, and his own firm, Janvey, Gordon et al), has become a partner in the Firm and is heading up Diamond McCarthy's New York office. Joining Richard is Joan Secofsky, also with 35+ years of experience (formerly with Skadden Arps, Proskauer Rose and others).

Consistent with Diamond McCarthy's "single firm approach," its New York office already is involved in all aspects of the Firm's complex commercial litigation/trial and insolvency practice. "The demands of our international trial practice require that we approach case staffing on a firm-wide basis, rather than office by office," Diamond said. "That permits us to devote our resources to the cases for which they are best suited and most needed, rather than being hindered by physical geography." As Janvey added, "Our New York office provides Diamond McCarthy with valuable new resources, while permitting the Firm to better serve its clients in New York and abroad."
The Firm's sub-prime litigation task group, formed earlier this year, will be collaborating and working with the New York office, and the Firm currently is planning to launch one or more new sub-practice group areas to be spearheaded out of the New York office.
