Barton LLP is comprised of an elite team of former partners of “BigLaw” who have joined together to create a progressive law firm. We view legal services as business services and our attorneys and staff are business people serving business clients to advance their business goals, which is why we say, “Barton Means Business – Changing the Way You Think About Lawyers.” Barton works at the intersection of law and business to provide client access to the legal acumen, business resources and relationships needed for success in an increasingly complex economic environment. Barton was featured as “Ones to Watch for 2016: The Best Boutique Law Firms” and was also named Best for Commercial Litigation in New York by Acquisition International magazine. Barton was recently nationally recognized by Law360 as one of 10 law firms “giving BigLaw a run for its money.” Ten of Barton’s attorneys were named Super Lawyers in Thomson Reuters’ 2017 annual survey of the top 5% of lawyers in the nation.
