About Us

Our Mission

When we decided to establish a new law firm, we set out with three goals:

  1. To collect an exceptional group of lawyers and staff who, together, would be well-poised to respond with ingenuity and flexibility to the challenges that lie ahead.
  2. To fuse together a high-stakes commercial practice with a cutting-edge public interest practice for the mutual benefit of both; and
  3. To provide fierce advocacy that sets the standard for excellence and to do it from a firm whose ethic is rooted in fairness, integrity, and justice.

In this sense our law firm is both “new-fashioned” and “old-fashioned.” Our mission at Kaplan & Company, LLP is to provide the highest level of client service from a firm that has timeless values but is built for the future.

"I think the first duty of society is justice."

"Robbie never misses the forest for the trees. She is strategic and practical but keeps her sense of humor at all times. Most important, she’s really taken the time to understand our business and its transformational effect on the world."
Darren Weingard, General Counsel, Luxe

Top-Tier
Credentials

Our team is made up of only the best and brightest and has the academic records, clerkships, awards and record of victories to prove it. And our clients enjoy the service of the top talent at every level of our teams – from the senior partner to the most junior staff member assisting on our cases.

"It’s a great opportunity to have a commercial litigation boutique firm coming out of New York with the kind of deep experience that Robbie and her team have. Smaller firms can be more nimble and are often more efficient in how they work.”
Laura Buckland, SVP & Chief Litigation Officer, T-Mobile

Innovation and Integrity

In our lawyers, we value inventiveness, imagination, dedication, grit, collaboration, and innovation. We welcome the opportunity to push substantive law and procedure forward in creative and ingenious ways. We also know that a lawyer is only as good as her reputation—not only for mastery of the law, but also for ethical and collegial conduct—so the integrity of our team is paramount.

"Kaplan and three other high-powered lawyers have launched what should soon become one of the nation’s leading litigation boutiques."
Above the Law

Efficiency

We have an unflagging commitment to get our clients’ work done efficiently and at the highest possible level of quality, skill and craftsmanship. Because our team of superstar litigators is collaborative and nimble, our clients are able to enjoy superior representation at below-market rates.

"[Kaplan] is building a new firm in her own formidable image: a traditional litigation boutique that is also a force to be reckoned with in civil rights causes such as the Time’s Up legal and media campaign to address sexual injustice.”
Columbia Law School Magazine

Law in the Public Interest

As lawyers, we are officers of the court and servants of the people, duty bound to uphold the rule of law and the statutory and constitutional protections that the law promises to everyone.  We put public service at the heart of our practice; we don’t believe in sidelining that responsibility to pro bono teams or pro bono hours. We are committed to litigating cases that advance the public interest and we will always treat those cases exactly the same way that we treat any other case.

“In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.”

Albert Einstein

Equity and
Inclusion

We are committed to fostering a workplace in which lawyers and staff from all backgrounds are welcomed, supported, and given every opportunity to contribute, develop, lead, and reach their highest potential. Our clients can count on getting the very best representation because we recruit and retain the very best talent, regardless of how they look, love, or pray. For us, diversity is a core value as well as a sound business practice—in an increasingly interconnected global economy, a diverse team not only reflects the diversity of our clients, but also ensures our lawyers have the perspectives and experience required to address the complex and varied challenges our clients face.

We are invested in a model of practice that values collaboration over rigid hierarchy. Our clients are best served by lawyering that benefits from the insights and fresh ideas of every member of every team.
