esPhil Chapman concentrates in counseling New Jersey business owners of small to medium sized companies, including a business that is family owned. In a just published survey for 2016 of the Best Lawyers in New York City and Metropolitan New Jersey, I am listed under Corporate Law. I have been selected as a Lead Counsel in Business Law by the Review Board of Lead Counsel, an on-line service which provides information to consumers and businesses to evaluate an attorney’s ability and credibility. The information is based upon reviews by clients and peers; and in order to earn a Lead Counsel Rating, an attorney must demonstrate significant legal experience and receive multiple peer recommendations advocating his or her legal ability.
