Lipsius BenHaim Law is a boutique litigation firm focusing on insurance litigation and advice. Its senior partner, Ira Lipsius, was the senior partner in Schindel, Farman, Lipsius, Gardner & Rabinovich where he practiced in the field of insurance coverage for over 30 years. When the firm, after 75 years, disbanded in 2011, Mr. Lipsius opened Lipsius BenHaim Law with David BenHaim, who had been with the Schindel firm for almost a decade. Lipsius BenHaim brought with them from the Schindel firm key members of the litigation and support staff and moved to Kew Gardens, less than 20 minutes from Manhattan and two of New York's airports
Since the firm's founding in 2011 over 25 decisions argued by the firm have been reported. The firm has earned a reputation in re-insurance and arbitration with a key decision by the United States Court of Appeals in 2013 making landmark law in arbitration law. The decision was described by one of the country's largest law firms as "a new standard."
