A WINNING APPROACH
Whether working with a large business, a local Bergen County company or banking institution, a top U.S. insurance company or an individual, Harwood Lloyd follows a service-oriented philosophy, offering clients personal attention and the advantages of a large firm. Unlike many large law firms, the size of our client’s business is not a factor in the quality of service we provide. We believe personalized service is the key to resolving our clients’ legal matters as expeditiously and economically as possible. Our clients appreciate this and often remark that our service compares very favorably with New York law firms.
BUILT ON A LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE
In 1975, Richard Ryan, the late Frank V. D. Lloyd, and the late Victor C. Harwood founded Harwood Lloyd. Their high standards and tradition of legal excellence were based on the counsel of Mr. Lloyd’s father, Francis Van Duyne Lloyd, a former Bergen County Judge and Deputy Attorney General. Today, our practice boasts an impeccable reputation and a team of more than 35 attorneys that have been carefully selected to ensure that the firm can meet the increasing demand for high levels of sophistication in every segment of New Jersey and the metropolitan area’s expanding market. Headquartered in Hackensack, New Jersey, the firm has a branch office in New York City.
A DYNAMIC LAW FIRM IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Continuing our tradition of offering both private individuals as well as the shareholders, directors and officers of privately held businesses a broad base of services, our major practice areas now encompass five broad categories; and given the breadth of knowledge of our attorneys, there really isn’t any legal matter we can’t handle.
Our hallmark is our capability to serve major businesses and corporations as well as smaller businesses and individual clients. We’ve grown and added new areas of practice but never lost sight of our mission: to provide high-quality legal advice and assistance to our clients. One measure of our success is the many clients that have grown their businesses with our assistance over the last 40 years.
Another distinguishing factor in the success of Harwood Lloyd is our team approach. No matter how large the team working with a Harwood Lloyd client, one attorney is always assigned to act as their general counsel. There is always a comfort level that has to be achieved between attorney and client in order to work closely and effectively. Providing a single point of contact enables our clients to access their team with one simple phone call.
The result of this philosophy, organizational structure and gathering of talent is that Harwood Lloyd is now recognized as one of Bergen County’s premier law firms and has gained the respect of its peers throughout New Jersey. Indeed, when Peter Ciolino, a former assignment judge in both Passaic County and Bergen County, left the bench to begin his private practice, his first choice for a firm was Harwood Lloyd.
We have found that our clients recommend us to their associates, friends and families; and what makes us even more successful is our determination to continue to expand our talents and to attract new businesses and clients that are making a home in the metropolitan area.
