Longtime Albany Law Firm Adds Named Partner and Recommits to Downtown Albany with New Office Location



Longtime Albany business law firm Nolan & Heller announced today that as it moves to a new downtown location at 80 State Street it has been renamed Nolan Heller Kauffman, adding Madeline H. Kibrick Kauffman, one of the firm’s two managing partners, as a named partner.

Since its founding in 1964, Nolan Heller Kauffman has provided a full range of legal services in business and commercial matters, including corporate and commercial real estate transactions, commercial litigation, banking, creditors’ rights, bankruptcy and reorganizations, corporate law, environmental law, governmental relations (including regulatory issues involving liquor licensing and gaming), land use, zoning and planning law, municipal law, and securities.  Its clients include publicly traded and privately held businesses, financial institutions, commercial real estate owners and developers, contractors, entrepreneurs and start-ups, municipalities and state government agencies. 

Kauffman has been with the firm since 1987, serving both domestic and international clients. She is one of only a few women to become a named partner of a well-established Capital Region law firm.  Kauffman concentrates her practice in the areas of creditors’ rights, commercial loan workouts and restructurings, commercial lending, commercial and real estate transactions, business counseling and contracts, cash management documentation, complex commercial litigation and large-scale collections.  She is a member of the American Arbitration Association Roster of Neutrals, holds an “AV” ® Preeminent™ Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating, and has been selected to the Upstate New York Super Lawyers list since 2012. Kauffman has served as counsel to the Albany County Business Development Corporation since 2013.  She is a graduate of Union College and Albany Law School.

“For decades, Nolan & Heller has served clients throughout New York State and beyond, providing them with creative and innovative solutions to complex problems. I am extremely proud that the firm to which I have dedicated my entire career now bears my name, along with the names of its founders, Howard Nolan and Mark Heller, and that of his son, my fellow managing Partner Justin Heller,” said Kauffman.

Nolan Heller Kauffman moved from its offices at 39 North Pearl Street in Albany earlier this month and now occupies 7,000 square feet of office space on the 11th floor of 80 State St. in Albany. Its staff of 20 includes 15 attorneys and five support staff.

“We are thrilled to renew our commitment to maintaining our offices in downtown Albany, as we have for the past 55 years,” said Heller.  “We have earned a reputation as one of the Capital Region’s top law firms – delivering Wall Street quality legal services and results – and we look forward to continuing to do so from our new location.”
