Corey S. Kupfer is Partner at the Hamburger Law Firm and is also Director,
Entrepreneur Services at MarketCounsel, an affiliated business, regulatory, and compliance consulting firm for entrepreneurial investment advisory firms nationwide. Corey oversees the firm’s Business and Commercial Practice Group, concentrating on the lifecycle of entrepreneurial business entities including corporate and contractual services, business combinations, reorganizations, and mergers & acquisitions, succession planning and transition strategies. Mr. Kupfer also manages the real estate, intellectual property, litigation and labor and employment law practices of the firm.
Mr. Kupfer joined the Hamburger Law Firm in 2010 when the firm acquired Kupfer’s entrepreneurial corporate law firm, Kupfer & Associates, PLLC. Mr. Kupfer founded his firm in 1991 to address the needs of entrepreneurs. Throughout, his passion has always been in advising his business clients, structuring transactions and negotiating deals.
A successful entrepreneur from the age of 15, Corey is a rarity among attorneys – he both understands and appreciates how business people think. He knows that every business transaction has a window of opportunity that can be missed when faced with untimely legal delays or over-lawyering.
Corey believes his role as counselor is to foster business dealings by assessing and managing risk, not by restricting the options and opportunities of his clients. His ability to serve as a trusted advisor, strategist, and deal maker is a rare and valuable quality that has won the respect and long-term loyalty of his clients.
In 2011, the New York Enterprise Report, a leading publication for entrepreneurial companies, honored Corey with their Best Corporate Attorney and the Attorney of the Year awards.
Corey received his Juris Doctorate from New York University School of Law in 1985, where he was a member of the Annual Survey of American Law. He was admitted to the Bar of the State of New York in 1986 and within 6 years had established his own practice. In preparation for that he was first associated with the New York office of Chicago-based Seyfarth, Shaw, Fairweather and Geraldson working primarily on public offerings, private placements and leveraged buyout transactions and labor and employment law matters. He later gained extensive experience in a broader range of corporate and real estate matters through his association with the New York law firm Herrick, Feinstein.
Corey is active in many non-profit and public interest organizations. For example, he is a member of the Board of Directors of the New York Chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization. He previously served on the Boards of the Coro New York Leadership Center, an organization dedicated to civic involvement that trains future leaders in the private, public and non-profit sectors, and 1+1+1=ONE, an organization committed to using art and civic dialogue for positive social change in the areas of race relations and young women’s empowerment. He also provides pro bono legal services to numerous other organizations.
Corey is married, travels extensively, and golfs poorly.

I have known and worked with Corey for years. He has a great ability to problem solve and find creative ways to get things done whether the matter at hand is reletivley small or a multimillion dollar deal. I would continue to recommend Corey with the highest of confidence.
