Gary Trachten Commercial Law Attorney - Kudman Trachten & Aloe LLP

Gary E. Trachten
Gary E. Trachten Gary Trachten - Partner Gary Trachten, a founding partner in 1986, has a practice concentrating on employment law and commercial litigation. Providing both transactional and dispute resolution services, he regularly represents inter-dealer brokers, traders, portfolio managers, investment bankers, corporate officers, physicians, sales persons, middle managers and other employees. His business clients, for commercial as well as employment matters, have included companies in the fashion apparel, hospitality, banking, cosmetics, music production, restaurant franchisor, flavor and fragrance, building products and other industries. He has earned the respect of his peers in the legal community, who have given him the highest possible rating for his legal abilities and adherence to ethical standard, rating him AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review RatedSM in Martindale-Hubbell®. He has also been awarded Thomson Reuters Super Lawyers® status for the New York metro area every year in 2010 - 2017. Whether wearing the hat of counselor, negotiator or litigator, Mr. Trachten never loses sight of all of the conflicting interests and complexities at play. He is forthright in his analyses and advice to his employee and employer clients - unconcerned with whether his message may not sit well. When negotiating employment, termination, settlement or other commercial agreements, his style is to be credible: forward leaning, but not overreaching - finding ways to insure protection of his client's expectations while fairly addressing the legitimate concerns of the party across the table. As a litigator, he is aggressive, credible, creative in crafting legal arguments, thorough and practical. And he is careful always to reach for and don the right hat at the right time. Expanding expertise and perspective Mr. Trachten has with considerable frequency presented continuing legal education talks and papers about wrongful termination claims, tax issues in employment cases, use of experts, representation of highly paid employees, negotiating employment and consultation agreements, and other topics. He has made these presentations to audiences of lawyers and judges through the Practicing Law Institute; New York University Law School; National Employment Lawyers Association, and the American, New York County, New York City and New Rochelle Bar Associations. His preparation of these presentations and his interactions with theses audiences contribute to Mr. Trachten's staying on top of legal developments and having a broad and growing perspective on the legal and practical issues that arise in his practice. As co-editor (2005 -2009) of The New York Employee Advocate, a publication of the New York affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association, Mr. Trachten has written many articles, including pieces on severance offers, substantive and procedural contractual protections against dismissal without just cause, and corporate officer indemnity rights under New York's Business Corporation Law. Community and political leader Mr. Trachten has long been actively involved in his New Rochelle and Westchester County community. He has served as a volunteer arbitrator for the New Rochelle City Court, as a member of the Board of United Way of New Rochelle, and a member of the Mayor's Davids Island Task Force. He has been a member of the Board of the Westchester Jewish Council since 2008, has served on its Executive Committee from 2011-2015, and currently is the Chair of its Westchester Jewish Music & Arts Festival. He currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Board of Hillels of Westchester, which serves four college campuses. In the political arena, Mr. Trachten has been a Vice Chair and Council District Leader of, respectively, his political party's county and local committees. He has also served as a trained volunteer poll watcher in national (out of state) and local elections.
