Clark, Atcheson & Reisert was founded over twenty years ago by veteran maritime lawyers who began their legal careers in large established New York City admiralty firms. Looking for a simpler, more agile model that was efficient and highly responsive to its clients,the new firm’s approach emphasized personal service and lean but skillful staffing of matters often by a single partner who was thoroughly familiar with all the

facts and issues and who, mostimportantly, knew how to get results. Schooled at leading maritime academies and equipped with real-world shipping industry experience both at sea and ashore, the firm’s founders understood their clients’ problems and could more readily identify solutions without time-absorbing layers of junior partners, associates and paralegals. As a consequence, the client’s objectives were satisfied at less cost.


This time-tested approach remains as it was twenty years ago, except that the firm’s partners have even greater experience and the firm’s practice has broadened into real estate, commercial transactions and general business advice. When clients contact Clark, Atcheson & Reisert, they receive individual attention and legal advice from seasoned practitioners whose experience and knowledge in their given field is unsurpassed.
