sophisticated and complex corporate and commercial matters,
involving a wide range of manufacturing, distribution, financial
and other entities. His diverse practice has included the
acquisitions and dispositions of businesses and a variety of
commercial contracts, as well as more general corporate advisory
work, not only for public and privately-owned enterprises, but
for families and individuals as well. He has, in this practice,
put to good use his magna cum laude degree in accounting from
the City College of New York School of Business and Public
Administration (now Baruch College), where he was the Editor of

In addition to his corporate and commercial law practice, Mr.
Wald has participated extensively in major litigation,
particularly in cases involving novel Constitutional or
statutory issues. Among these cases have been appeals before the
United States Supreme Court and the New York Court of Appeals

jurisdiction of federal and state courts over foreign entities.
In other major cases, he succeeded in establishing key
principles of commercial and import-export law, particularly in
the letter of credit area.
