Lewis Rosenberg

Lewis Rosenberg was featured in an article entitled “Oars in the Water, a Law Journal in the Mailbox” in the March 6 issue of the New York Law Journal. Getting the mail and his copy of the journal involves a seven-mile row in his Adirondack guide boat across Spitfire Lake, the middle of the three Regis lakes in upstate New York, where he spends his summers. Rosenberg is of counsel in the New York, NY, office of Ginarte, Gonzalez & Winograd LLP.


Summer Retreat: Decades ago, Rosenberg and his wife purchased their camp on Spitfire Lake in the Adirondacks as a retreat from their Manhattan home and Rosenberg’s busy NYC litigation practice, which continues today. Compare and Contrast: “At Spitfire, our nearest neighbor on one side is two miles away by water or land, and we have long views across the water to distant mountains. Contrast that with our life in a Manhattan apartment where our nearest neighbor is sixteen-inches-of-masonry-and-plaster away.” Preference: “I don’t prefer one over the other. Manhattan has vitality and energy. The lake has tranquility and relaxation and nature study.” Unique Sightings: In addition to rare flora and fauna, the lakes are home to sprawling turn-of-the-twentieth-century Adirondack “Great Camps,” including Harlan Crow’s Camp Topridge, recently famous for reportedly hosting US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in past summers. Last Sighting: Rosenberg last saw Justice Thomas at the US Supreme Court when Rosenberg successfully argued a case before it (9-0).
