Whether you operate a small business with only one employee or you employ hundreds of people, one thing is clear: when legal issues arise the most important decision you will face is where to turn for counsel and legal advice. The attorneys at our firm have spent decades representing individuals and business entities of all sizes. Our attorneys understand what is most important to all businesses - the bottom line.

At Rudner & Paleudis, LLC we pride ourselves on the breadth and expanse of our attorneys’ knowledge and understanding of the business world. Our attorneys hail from varied and diverse backgrounds. With years of experience in the hospitality industry, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, the entertainment world, and the courtroom, our attorneys come equipped with the practical real world experience that allows them to provide crisp, clear, and fairly priced advice to their clients.

Our attorneys appear before local, state, and federal agencies such as the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA), the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA), the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), the United States Patent and Trademark office (USPTO), and the United States Copyright Office. When appearing before these agencies our attorneys use their legal and real world training to advocate for, and obtain the best possible result for, our clients.


Our attorneys assist individuals, corporations, limited liability companies, and other entities whenever legal needs arise. Our client’s range in size from single member LLCs to large multi-tiered holding corporations. At Rudner & Paleudis, LLC we regularly assist with the formation of business entities and the preparation of operating agreements, shareholders’ agreements, leases and other agreements that are vital to the successful start-up of any business. Our attorneys also represent existing companies in need of purchase and sale agreements, buy-sell agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and other contracts that serve to protect our client’s interests in the event of inevitable business complications. We represent individuals and entities buying and selling real commercial property. The firm represents not-for-profit corporations formed under the New York State Not-For-Profit Law.

At Rudner & Paleudis, LLC, we represent bar owners, restaurateurs, hoteliers, liquor stores, liquor importers, microbrewers, wineries, and other corporate entities. Having spent years representing licensees, our attorneys are aware that businesses rely upon their ability to serve alcohol and that every day that passes without a liquor license means substantial lost revenue. We appreciate the time sensitive nature of all matters pending before the New York State Liquor Authority, and other licensing agencies, and we work expeditiously to facilitate the processing of our clients’ applications.

In addition to assisting clients with their applications to the New York State Liquor Authority, our attorneys handle renewal applications, alteration applications, applications for approval of corporate change, 500-foot rule hearings, SLA violations and all other matters before the New York State Liquor Authority.

An unfortunate by-product of operating a successful business is that the successful business owner will likely become involved in litigation. Whether your business is being sued, or considering whether to commence litigation, the attorneys at our firm have the knowledge and experience to assist you and will zealously represent your interests.
