Brown Stone Nimeroff LLC is a woman-owned law firm founded in 2007 by Mary Kay Brown, Antoinette R. Stone and Jami B. Nimeroff, serving clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. The firm has been certified as a woman-owned business by the City of Philadelphia, the State of New Jersey and the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
Before founding their firm, BSN’s founding partners practiced law at large Philadelphia law firms, including one of the largest firms in Pennsylvania. Collectively, BSN’s lawyers have more than sixty years of experience in representing national corporations, financial institutions, governmental entities and officers, small businesses, partnerships and individuals in business transactions, commercial disputes, constitutional and statutory claims and bankruptcy and creditors’ rights matters. The firm handles matters at all levels of the state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, as well as before federal, state and local administrative agencies.
We at BSN believe that a lawyer’s most important obligation is to serve as counselor and problem-solver, not merely as a “hired gun.” We undertake each new matter by first assisting the client in articulating its objectives and then working with the client to achieve those objectives as efficiently and effectively as possible.
We offer our clients the benefit of: • Years of experience in handling sophisticated and complex matters in federal and state courts across the country and in private arbitration and mediation • Dedication to creative problem-solving, not turning the client’s problems into “projects” • Cost-effective representation • In-depth knowledge and understanding of our clients’ businesses • An efficiently-run firm that understands the meaning of “service” • Tenacious advocacy
