Prior to forming PKA Law, Joseph Paykin worked for a prestigious Wall Street firm. He formed a partnership with Charles Krieg in 1994 in order to provide specialized and customized representation to their clients.
In 2009, Thomas Adams joined his childhood friends Paykin and Krieg and they formed PKA Law. Adams became head of the corporate department due to the extensive knowledge he gained during his career in the financial services industry. His background includes working in a substantial Wall Street firm and in-house counsel positions with financial institutions, including a Fortune 500 ratings agency.
The three partners created PKA Law with the goal of representing clients as if our attorneys were actually in-house counsel. This novel approach to representation was created to ensure that we provide maximum benefit to our clients. To that end, we always search for the most cost-effective solutions, always weighing cost within the context of the value added.
