Our Firm

The partnership between Partners Jack Harari & Barry Weidenbaum began in elementary school.

You could say that our law firm had its origins back in the 1970s, when partners Barry Weidenbaum and Jack Harari, two of the youngest kids in class, teamed up to win a 2-on-2 soccer tournament at their grammar school in New York. It was here that they first learned the importance of teamwork and started a relationship built on honesty and trust that continued throughout high school and college. About 25 years later, they teamed up again to form Weidenbaum & Harari, a Manhattan-based law firm, focused on serving the legal needs of the real estate and construction industries.

Over the years, Weidenbaum & Harari has grown to become a successful law practice by cultivating those same concepts of teamwork, trust, and honesty that Jack and Barry began back in grammar school. In fact, it is the character of our attorneys and support staff that is a hallmark of the firm.

From the beginning, we employed a team approach, where each client is assigned one Partner and one Associate to handle their transaction. As our reputation for personal service grew, we built our business through referrals from prior clients, leading NYC-area real estate brokers, building owners, contractors, and construction suppliers who appreciate our legal intelligence, hands-on approach, and creative solutions. We have successfully closed thousands of real estate transactions. We guide, educate and protect our clients, many of whom are first time buyers and sellers, throughout the real estate process.

Our attorneys possess a powerful combination of integrity, enthusiasm, and persistence, as well as a rich and diverse mix of legal skills. We work closely with our clients, keeping them informed of their case’s progress, and acting decisively to control the cost of our services while remaining focused on the client’s goals.
