The law offices of New & Karfunkel, P.C. are located in West Caldwell, New Jersey. With over 100 years of combined experience, the lawyers at New & Karfunkel, P.C. specialize in ERISA matters affecting multi-employer Taft Hartley Benefit Plans and Employer related benefit and labor issues. Serving clients on many other matters, the firm focuses on representing Trustees of multi-employer benefit funds, employers contributing to such funds and employers signatory to union contracts. The firm’s attorneys have been representing such clients since the 1950’s. The experience and expertise that is provided to our clients is unsurpassed in the New York/New Jersey area.

The firm also regularly handles real estate, commercial transaction, and elder care issues on a regular basis.

The following list is representative of the types of claims and issues routinely handled by the firm:
  • Multi-Employer Benefit Plans
  • Management Side Labor Relations
  • Employer Associations
  • Commercial Law

The firm represented a group of Taft Hartley Funds in the first RICO action brought by the United States Justice Department against a union and its benefit funds for imposition of a Trusteeship. In addition, several of our Taft Hartley Fund clients have been with the firm in excess of 40 years. It has been involved in “cutting edge” litigation throughout that time in the ERISA field, creating new law.

New & Karfunkel, P.C. prides itself in giving personal attention to its client's needs and its knowledge of the labor and benefits and other and other areas of law.

In addition to its unionized Employer clients, the firm represents several Employer Associations for labor and/or ERISA issues, affording daily consultation, handling grievances, negotiating collective bargaining agreements and conducting educational presentations.
