As a financial and operations executive and past business owner, I had the opportunity to work with Ladd and his team. Two words immediately come to mind when I think of Ladd - Integrity and Credibility. Of all the attorneys and business professionals I've met in my career, I'd put Ladd at the top of this list in those areas. There are many knowledgeable individuals, with which I've had the opportunity to work. But I get a better sense of comfort in working with someone who is also honest and trustworthy, as Ladd. He also possesses a keen business sense. Ladd and his staff are extremely professional and courteous, and quite personable too. It would be well worth your time to meet Ladd to explore how he might be a resource for you.

“As a business owner who has had multiple litigation cases, I can confidently say that Ladd Hirsch was one of the best attorneys I have worked with in the past 25 years. He has a high degree of integrity, aggressive without being arrogant and most importantly for me, he was available by phone 24/7 and explained the whole process that would be taking place and the timetable for opposition response. He also would listen patiently to my thoughts and concerns and respond to my questions  by explaining the pros and cons, which allowed me to be a part of the process. In addition, his entire staff was very professional and always made me feel like I was the most important client they were working with at the time. I highly recommend Ladd Hirsch and his team for any of your business litigation needs.”

“Diamond McCarthy provides full-service real estate expertise. As an owner and operator of substantial ski resorts from Colorado to Vermont, we rely on Diamond McCarthy to assist us in everything from the successful financial restructuring of certain of our corporate and real estate debt and the sale leaseback of resort mountain property, to various real estate-related litigation.”

Ladd Hirsch's detailed preparation for the arbitration and his tenacity during the hearing itself was the main reason that we were successful in achieving such a favorable award. Diamond McCarthy's diligence and creativity was instrumental in overcoming the other side's vigorous defense. We will miss working with you and your team.”

Matt Renner, National Real Estate Management Corporation

“Diamond McCarthy provided excellent representation to USMD Hospital at Arlington, L.P., in bringing a complex breach of contract action seeking eight-figure damages. Their work led to a very favorable settlement for USMD.  Diamond McCarthy attorneys were convicted in their purpose, diligent in their execution, and outstanding in their strategy. More than that, they were inspirational.”

Karen A. Fiducia, FACHE, President, USMD Hospital Division

“After 10 years in business partnership, our general partner sold the company for a sizable profit, but refused to distribute anything to our limited partners. I needed a trial lawyer specializing in partnership disputes, and was directed to Ladd Hirsch, one of the finest attorneys I have had the pleasure to know. Ladd listened closely to me, asked the right questions to determine my needs, worked out a fair retention agreement and mapped out a strategic plan with a defined timeline for my lawsuit.”

“It took years of research, diligent pursuit of my claims and the extraordinary skill of Ladd and his trial team to bring my case to a satisfying resolution. It was my good fortune to be represented by an energetic attorney who demonstrated not only excellent legal competence, but also ethical principles that guided his actions. Due to Ladd’s fine legal work and his personal commitment to my case, I received a proper dissolution of a family business legacy and the fair distribution of my family’s equity.”

Joseph A. Polichino, Jr., Senior Management Consultant and Private Equity Investor

“Diamond McCarthy obtained a substantial settlement that far exceeded my expectations and the expectations of the creditors’ committee that benefitted from the settlement. The Diamond McCarthy attorneys I worked with were among the smartest, most conscientious, best prepared I have ever encountered. They got a great result in a cost-effective manner in an extremely difficult case. Moreover, this firm was not afraid to put its money where its mouth was – they agreed to bear some of the risk of the litigation, which ultimately allowed them and their client to benefit from the fee arrangement. I highly recommend this firm.”
