Lou Pechman is excellent in negotiating employment and separation agreements. He has been a trusted advisor in my successful transition through the C suites of several companies in the biotech industry. Lou is experienced, well respected by other attorneys, and easy to work with. He is a first-rate attorney in all respects. There is no other person that I would rather have in my corner.

Pechman Law Group is an exceptional law firm in New York. My first time experience with a law group couldn't have been more clear, concise, detailed oriented and result driven. Vivianna is diligent, professional and kind, she makes sure all the details are covered but does so in a relaxed manner. Lou was a great presence to have as well during the process, you can see all his years of experience along with his team has created a positive reputation for getting great results. If you are searching for a Law Group, Pechman is an excellent choice, as they fully understand the business.

My company was sued for employment discrimination and Lou Pechman defended the case. Lou’s deposition of the plaintiff was surgical and her case unraveled and was ultimately dropped! A+ work and an amazing result.
