Founder & Managing Principal
Corey S. Kupfer
Corey is actively and personally involved in the corporate practice area of the firm including sophisticated corporate structuring, high-level strategic advice, and mergers, acquisitions, succession and other deals, while overseeing the firm’s other practice areas. He is a strategist, negotiator and dealmaker.
A successful entrepreneur from the age of 15, Corey is a rarity among attorneys – he both understands and appreciates how business people think. He knows that every business transaction has a window of opportunity that can be missed when faced with untimely legal delays or over-lawyering.
As a member of the New York Chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization since 2008, a Board Member since 2010, and Chapter President from July 2014 - June 2016, Corey has been a passionate advocate and leader in the entrepreneurial space. EO has over 11,000 members in over 40 countries and the New York Chapter is the largest in the world which has provided phenomenal contacts and resources for Corey and his clients.
Corey is a frequent speaker at entrepreneurial, business and securities industry conferences and events on many topics including authentic negotiating, deal-making and structuring, entity and platform design, mergers and acquisitions, entrepreneurship, visioning and planning, employee attraction and retention vehicles, authentic conversation about race and building authentic business relationships.
In 2011, New York Enterprise Report honored Corey at its Best Accountants and Attorneys for Growing Businesses Awards with its General Corporate Law and Attorney of the Year awards.
