Douglas S. Stanger

Doug S. Stanger has focused his career on representing business entities and their principals in effectuating their goals and meeting their challenges.  His extensive experience in entity development, contracts, real estate, tax, liquidations, and workouts has enabled him to add substantial value to his client’s endeavors. Mr. Stanger prides himself in assisting small developing, and in certain cases, distressed entities.   One of those companies that Doug had worked with for over 10 years recently sold their majority interest for over 150 million.  

Doug has served as past chair of the firm's Bankruptcy, Financial Restructuring and Risk Management Department and is a former member of the firm's Board of Directors. He currently concentrates his practice on corporate, real estate, property tax law, and bankruptcy.  

Mr. Stanger has authored articles about business, real estate, and bankruptcy. He also speaks at conferences and workshops on related topics each year.    

Since the beginning of his career, Doug proudly devotes time to being an active leader in many professional and community organizations. Mr. Stanger was the recipient of the Atlantic County Bar Association’s “Honorable Benjamin A. Rimm Award” for Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year and, in the years following, proudly presented, as Chairman of that Award, this same award to other young lawyers.  Doug was also the recipient of the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division “Service to the Community Award.”
