About Alderman & Alderman, LLC

Myles Alderman and his wife Linda Alderman formed Alderman & Alderman, opening their doors on January 1, 1992 with offices in the "Stilts Building" at 20 Church Street in Hartford, Connecticut. Before forming Alderman & Alderman, Linda had been an attorney at the law firm of Robinson & Cole, where she focused on environmental law, land use and zoning since 1987. Myles started his career as an attorney at the law firm of Reid & Riege, where his practice was focused on business insolvency, creditors' rights and commercial law.

Frank Browne was "of counsel" to Alderman & Alderman from its start. Frank had worked with Linda at Robinson & Cole, where he had been an attorney in the corporate law and business formation practice group and he had worked with Myles in leadership of the Connecticut Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section. Shortly, after Alderman & Alderman was formed, Eric Gruber, who practiced commercial litigation and creditors rights in New York, joined the firm as the second "of counsel" attorney. Eric had been a friend of Myles and Linda since their days together in law school. Morris Pollack was introduced to Alderman & Alderman when, as senior Intellectual Property counsel for Litton Industries he retained the firm to represent his company's interests in various matters. When Morris decided to return to private practice, he joined Alderman & Alderman as of counsel.

From 1992 - 2013, Alderman & Alderman was also fortunate to have many very capable law students and attorneys work with us. Some of Alderman & Alderman's alumni eventually left the firm and Connecticut to practice with larger firms, such as Wilkie, Farr & Gallagher and Paul Weiss in New York City. Some others went on to become partners in other well respected firms in Connecticut.

As a result of complications from a very rare illness Linda was forced to take a leave from the practice of law starting in 2006. Clients that had turned to Linda Alderman for her environmental expertise were referred to other highly skilled environmental lawyers. The balance of the firm's practices continued to thrive.

In 2013, Myles Alderman accepted the invitation to join Halloran & Sage as Chair of that firm's Bankruptcy, Creditors' Rights and Restructuring Practice Group. In the fall of 2015, Myles returned to practice with his former colleagues at the firm that is now known as Alderman & Alderman, LLC. See, Connecticut Law Tribune Article.

Myles had this to say about his decisions: "It was an honor and a privilege to be tapped to chair the Bankruptcy, Creditors' Rights and Restructuring Group at Halloran & Sage. I am pleased with what we accomplished. However, in the final analysis I found that there were too many conflicts that precluded me from serving clients that sought my services and that I missed practicing with my good friends with whom I had practiced for so many years."
