Since 1967, Goetz Fitzpatrick LLP has been a litigation powerhouse and a trusted adviser to businesses and entrepreneurs.
50 years ago, good friends Peter Goetz and Gerry Fitzpatrick were feeling restless. Both had built strong careers in engineering and construction, but discovered there were new and exciting opportunities in these fields which could be pursued through the practice of law. With a leap of faith and dogged determination, Goetz and Fitzpatrick eschewed their burgeoning careers and opened the first iteration of Goetz Fitzpatrick LLP. During their initial years of practice, they navigated the often rough and tumble landscape of New York City construction with loyalty, honesty, accessibility, and commitment to their clients, the same principles that guide the firm to this day. Over the past 50 years, each partner that has come on board and helped grow Goetz Fitzpatrick into the full-service, mid-sized law firm it is today proudly continues to provide the same level of service upon which Peter and Gerry built their reputation. Our clients understand that we are always accessible and attentive while working tirelessly to both define and sharpen the cutting edge of construction law, real estate, and the firm’s other core disciplines.
