New York, NY, January 5, 2014 –

Karlinsky LLC has tapped Murray D. Schwartz as Corporate Counsel, further strengthening the Firm’s business operations and initiatives and enlarging its practice to encompass corporate law and mergers and acquisitions. While the New York City-based firm continues to focus on civil and business litigation, this acquisition will enable a broader range of service offerings and a deeper level of client support in both litigation and corporate practice.

Mr. Schwartz will advise Karlinsky LLC on governance and management, strategic planning and growth, and marketing and public relations. He will likewise continue an almost 40-year practice in corporate law and mergers and acquisitions, principally to mid-market entities. His combined business and legal experience derive from his serving at counsel and partner level for leading law firms, including Herrick Feinstein LLP; Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP; and Pryor Cashman LLP as well as senior executive for publishing concerns. Mr. Schwartz’s input on the Firm’s structure and development and policy implementation will deepen its leadership role in dispute resolution.

Said Martin E. Karlinsky, the firm’s managing member, “Mr. Schwartz and I practiced law together as partners during 2006/7, and found that we were a good fit. His substantive expertise as a lawyer expands our ability to offer additional services to existing litigation clients, and our existing platform and client base offer him new clients that can use his expertise.”

A member of the New York State Bar Association, Mr. Schwartz is a 1974 graduate of New York University School of Law where he was an editor of the NYU Law Review. He is active with the Advisory Board of the New York University Medical School Center for the Study and Treatment of Pain.
