Our Firm

Schulman & Charish Law Group is a boutique litigation firm, with affiliates in New York and Israel, specializing in complex U.S. business litigation, international arbitration, and defense of white-collar and regulatory matters. We provide our clients with an extraordinary combination of skill, experience, and value.


Founders Eli Schulman and Michael Charish hail from top U.S. litigation practices: Eli from Cahill Gordon and Kellogg Huber, and Michael from Wachtell Lipton. Each has spent over 20 years handling complex litigations and investigations for clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 100 companies.

Our combined experience runs the gamut of sophisticated civil and white-collar-criminal matters, and our areas of special expertise include: contracts; business torts; intellectual property; securities; corporate governance; extradition; and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Teaming up with local counsel where our cases are pending, we litigate in trial and appellate courts, federal and state, across the United States.


We offer a singular value proposition, leveraging a discounted fee structure and a streamlined staffing model.

With billing rates geared toward the Israeli legal market, we charge a fraction of the rates of comparable U.S. litigators. And we seek opportunities to use our discounted rates as a baseline to structure alternative fee arrangements that reward success.

One or both of our partners handle each matter personally and directly, and customize the staffing of each individual project within a matter by tapping into a pool of talented U.S. attorneys residing in Israel, who provide excellent support at lower rates. Our scalability enables us to handle complex litigations of almost any size and scope, while avoiding overstaffing and minimizing inefficiency.

The Bottom Line

At Schulman & Charish, we litigate expertly and zealously. But we understand that litigation is not an end in itself, and we strategize with our clients to achieve optimal results with optimal efficiency.
