Chairman of the New York Law School Board of Trustees
Senior Partner, Abbey Spanier LLP

Arthur N. Abbey ’59 graduated from New York Law School 57 years ago. His legal education at New York Law School enabled him to build a law practice as a litigator and to start his own firm, now known as Abbey Spanier LLP. He was invited to become a member of the Board of Trustees of the Law School in 1995 and has served as its Chairman for the last 14 years.

A leading lawyer publication recently said the following about him: “This master securities litigator uses expert strategy and a straight shooter approach to win over courts and juries, netting the largest verdict ever in a securities class action trial.”
