Attorney Profile

The owner of Rickner PLLC, Rob Rickner divides his practice between complex commercial litigation and protecting the rights of people whose civil rights have been violated in some manner. Located in Manhattan, he provides representation to individual and business clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Rickner is admitted to practice before all New York state courts as well as before all the U.S. District Courts in New York and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

In his civil rights practice, Mr. Rickner has represented clients who have been the victims of police misconduct, including excessive force, false arrest, coerced confessions and witness intimidation. He has been successful in state and federal courtrooms in many of these cases. Mr. Rickner also defends people who have been named in defamation lawsuits for the purpose of silencing them after they have spoken out. His commercial litigation experience has encompassed cases involving securities fraud, shareholder derivative lawsuits, contract breaches, self-dealing and the unauthorized use of trade secrets.

Mr. Rickner attended The University of Vermont in Burlington, where he majored in comparative religion and spent a year abroad at the University of Sussex before receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 2000. After working for two nonprofit associations, he enrolled at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor magna cum laude in 2006.
