Since our founding in 1977, we at Cohen Pollock Merlin & Small have, in a significantly changed legal environment, held fast to our original philosophy: to provide sophisticated and responsive legal services to individuals, institutions, and businesses by a group of highly qualified legal practitioners.
Through controlled growth consistent with our philosophy, we have successfully achieved a dynamic, yet stable law firm, minimal in size. While creating and maintaining the personal relationships characteristic of our firm, each of our attorneys has expertise in one or more areas of vital importance to our clients, thus enabling us to serve all of our clients' needs. All of our attorneys are admitted to practice before appropriate local, state and federal courts and agencies including the U.S. Supreme Court.
The heart of our practice is practical business and personal law with a concentration on our clients’ business development and planning, and the protection, preservation and enhancement of our clients’ assets. We have established a practice that encompasses general business transactions, mergers and acquisitions, tax and estate planning, probate and estate administration, commercial real estate, secured lending, franchising, technology law, bankruptcy, creditors’ rights and commercial litigation.
Our dispute resolution practice focuses first on the pure business economics, endeavoring to promptly assess and advise clients to enable the most cost effective decisions as early as possible so as to avoid, whenever possible, protracted and expensive dispute resolution processes.
At CPM&S, we combine practical advice, seasoned negotiation skills, and an emphasis on cost-effectiveness to provide clients with timely and result-oriented service. From our office in Atlanta, Georgia, we serve a national client base and provide counsel to international clients as well.
We are especially proud that our unique approach has generated many long-term, multi-generational relationships with our clients. If we can be of service to you, we welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your needs.
