The New York Lawyer Referral Group (NYLRG) on LinkedIn was originally created by Alan in 2008 to help build better professional relationships between attorneys who practiced in New York State. Since that time the NYLRG has grown to over 1700 members. Businesses both domestic and international which operate in New York are recognizing the value of the NYLRG as the starting point for the formation of expertise-based legal teams to assist with growth opportunities and conflict resolution.
