About Us


Ellis Law Group is committed to achieving three important objectives for its clients:

  • providing the highest quality legal advice
  • vigorously representing their interests
  • assisting them in fulfilling their goals as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible

Educated in the nation’s finest universities and law schools and trained in major law firms, Ellis Law Group attorneys are well-versed in the intricacies of sophisticated business law. We combine large-firm expertise and reach with personalized attention and boutique–firm efficiencies to provide unparalleled value. As a result, our clients find that we are an attractive alternative to large-firm representation.

Our clients benefit from having access to a full range of fundamental legal disciplines within one firm. At the same time, our extensive network enables us to work with top specialists in niche disciplines and in other states and countries. This affords our clients necessary expertise and jurisdictional coverage without the burdensome costs associated with the overhead of large firms. We have significant cross-border experience, representing U.S.-based business in the international arena, as well as foreign businesses and individuals with their U.S. legal affairs.

We represent companies—from startups to public corporations—across many sectors, along with institutional and individual investors. Individuals also seek our counsel in a variety of business-related matters.

Emerging Companies/Venture Capital

ELG’s growth and success is rooted in our historically strong EC/VC practice, as Paul Ellis has been working in this sector of the legal market for more than 20 years. Along the way, he co-founded the New York Technology Council, which is now the 60,000+ member New York Tech Alliance/Tech Meetup, and has sat on the boards of both organizations. Among his activities in support of the startup ecosystem, Paul leads and moderates a long-standing series of panels and webinars on legal issues for startup companies that have featured some of the most prominent VCs, founders and other professionals in the industry.

ELG represents founders, companies and investors that are truly changing the world, many of which have had great success. We have a deep and abiding commitment to supporting them at every step of their journeys, not just through our legal advice, but as trusted advisors and wise, strategic counsel.

Our clients include some of the most creative and innovative individuals of our time. But as accomplished as they are in their various fields of endeavor, they look to us for guidance in the fundamental issues in growing and protecting a startup company, a responsibility which we take seriously.

ELG is particularly committed to its smaller clients, as we recognize that their needs for sophisticated, cost-effective legal counsel are no less than our larger clients. Yet, we recognize that a smaller company may have difficulty receiving the attention it needs in many of the larger firms servicing the startup economy. For that reason, our pledge to our clients is that, regardless of size, they will always receive the attention from us that they need and deserve.
