I was happy to join my fellow Board Members of the The Foreign Press Association, as well as the Board of Governors of the Foreign Press Foundation, ringing the opening bell of NASDAQ this morning.

I am happy to announce my recent election to the Board of Directors of the Foreign Press Association ("FPA")!

I am always on the lookout for new quality colleagues on whom I can rely on for good advice and support.

Recently, at a networking function, I was fortunate enough to meet Barbara Bilello (right) who was kind enough to invite me to the grand opening of the NYC office of Regent Atlantic, a financial planning firm. That's where I also met Cynthia Aiken (Left), as well as several other fine folks. I definitely am looking forward to seeing more tales...

I'm pleased to announce continued improvements to the Laner Legal website for your viewing ease and pleasure.  Ok, "pleasure" might be a strong word, but hey, I try to make it as much fun as anyone can make business, law and legal studies.  Here are some of the recent improvements:

Revised Formatting: I also have made several ch...

On July 11, 2017, I was happy to give a talk to existing and budding entrepreneurs at the NYC Game Changers Meetup. 

During the conversation I went over the basics of different company structures: the solo proprietorship, the partnership, the limited liability company (LLC) and the corporation (both "C" & "S" corps).


I also talked about the kinds of questions company founders should ask themselves and their partners as soon as possible, hopefully...

A beautiful Friday with Hungarian Ambassador to the United Nations, Katalin Bogyay (to my left, your right), at the Foreign Press Association Scholarship Fund Annual Gala.

This was such an honor, as I am 50% Magyar on my father's side (this one was for you grandma and grandpa!).

The Ambassador was incredibly gracious and gave a spell binding speech about her own story and growth as a journalist and diplomat. (and the food, of course, was enviable...

I am excited to announce my office has moved to the Financial District!

Last week I had the pleasure of participating in a panel, at a recently organized Stuyvesant High School legal alumni networking event, which was kindly hosted by the Law Firm of Olshan Frome Wolosky LLP. 

The panel consisted of two private sector and two government attorneys, who shared their thoughts on the changing nature of the legal profession.  Perhaps key among those new developments was the role of technology and the manner in which it ha...
