Howard J. Finkelstein
Welcome to the Law Offices of Howard J. Finkelstein

Howard J. Finkelstein has been practicing law for nearly 30 years, more than 25 for large law firms. On January 1, 2009, Howard decided to resign his partnership to open up his own law practice, focusing on finance, capital markets transaction and general corporate law.

Howard has represented some of the world’s largest companies, including multinational corporations and global banks, and has also represented start-up entrepreneurs. He has handled numerous complex and first-of-a-kind transactions as well as the simpler ones. In all cases he is always focused on getting the deal done. He views his clients as his business partners rather than customers. His role is not merely to be a mechanical document-production unit, but to provide legal and business advice to help his clients succeed.

In 2002, Howard discovered the world of microfinance and since that time he has become an expert in that burgeoning financial sector. His work has been instrumental in bringing nearly $1 billion of fresh capital to microfinance companies in more than 50 countries to help improve the lives of people who live on $2 or less a day. He is an advocate for the sustainable investment sector and is constantly on the lookout for business opportunities that will create double- and triple-bottom line investments.
