Zebersky Payne Shaw Lewenz (“ZPSL”) was founded in 1997 on principles of honesty, community, lasting client relationships, and above all, hard-work and an unwavering commitment to excellence. ZPSL’s commitment to those principles has propelled the firm to national recognition as one of the top boutique law firms in the country. ZPSL and its lawyers have represented individuals, entrepreneurs, emerging businesses, and Fortune 500 companies across the United States and the world
High-Stakes Litigation & Trial Work
Comprised of trial tested attorneys with training from top laws schools and law firms across the country, ZPSL represents clients in high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation in a broad range of industries and practice areas. ZPSL’s nimble, elite team is uniquely suited to handle matters involving business torts and partnership disputes, securities and stockholder litigation, consumer class action litigation, catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and more. Because of its ability to navigate state and federal courts, arbitration tribunals and, of course, trial, ZPSL regularly works with the largest firms in the world as local counsel, trial counsel, or consulting counsel. The firm has obtained plaintiffs’ verdicts and settlements of over half of a billion dollars and has successfully defended clients to limit or eliminate liability.
After recognizing a market gap for sophisticated middle market transactions, ZPSL created a Business Transactions Practice Group with big law lawyers, but without big law rates. The distinctly positioned team has the ability to represent clients in a broad spectrum of business and transactional matters while maintaining both excellence and reasonable client budgets. The ZPSL Business Transactions Practice Group handles mergers and acquisitions involving major companies, represents businesses from their formation through their growth and sale, and advises clients on capital raises, finance, securities, and international trade. Its clients range from privately-held and public corporations, to partnerships, limited liability companies, and other business organizations in virtually every sector of the economy, including manufacturing, technology, blockchain and digital currency, retail, real estate, manufacturing, e-commerce, supply chain and logistics, international trade and investment, and telecommunications.
