our history and our inspiration
Duval & Stachenfeld LLP was founded by Bruce Stachenfeld, Patrick Duval and Terri Adler in 1997.
From its beginning, the Firm was known for its high quality work in complex real estate transactions. However, it wasn’t until the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/2009 that the Firm blossomed into a major real estate player. This Financial Crisis resulted in dramatic changes in the real estate legal environment throughout the world, including a significant impact in New York City, which ultimately presented incredible opportunities to the Firm.
We think our story is exciting and interesting and gives the reasons for what we are today and, of even greater importance, “why” we are today.
