History[edit]

The firm was founded by former New Jersey Attorney General Arthur J. Sills.

The firm and many of its attorneys were selected for inclusion in Chambers USA Guide to America's Leading Lawyers for Business[1] which ranked the real estate, bankruptcy and health care practices first in New Jersey and the corporate, litigation, employment and labor, and intellectual property practices in the top three in New Jersey in the 2008 edition. Martindale-Hubbell has named the Firm to its Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers.[2] Many of the firm’s attorneys are regularly recognized for excellence by peers and clients in other national publications such as Best Lawyers in America[3] and Super Lawyers.[4]

On 9 January 2009, Sills Cummis merged with the New York City based law firm of Silverberg Stonehill Goldsmith & Haber, bringing its attorney headcount to 30 in New York and 165 firm-wide.[5]
