About Bellavia Blatt

Long island business news

Bellavia Blatt & Crossett, P.C., (“Bellavia Blatt”), is a nationally-recognized authority in franchise and business law.  The firm was founded in 1986 and has offices in Mineola, Hauppauge and the Albany, NY region. We provide legal counsel and services to small businesses throughout Long Island and New York State.

Founder and senior partner Leonard A. Bellavia understands the issues and challenges small businesses face.  His family owned one of the largest automobile dealer groups in the New York area, and his years of experience working in a variety of roles at the business gave him a unique perspective on how small and medium-sized businesses work, a perspective many in the legal profession lack.  Mr. Bellavia has pursued some of the largest mass action law suits for hundreds of small businesses against Fortune 500 companies. Under his leadership, Bellavia Blatt has amassed an impressive record of winning cases against major franchisors, vendors and government regulators.

Partner Steven H. Blatt has played an integral role in Bellavia Blatt’s growth and success. Mr. Blatt has extensive experience in a multitude of practice areas, including complex commercial litigation, employment and labor law, franchise litigation, loan workouts, and lender liability.  In addition, Mr. Blatt amassed considerable experience advising companies on employment-related issues, including wrongful discharges, pension rights, compensation, and wage hour disputes.  He is an invaluable resource representing businesses in complaints filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, New York State Division of Human Rights, the New York State Department of Labor, the United States Department of Labor, and National Labor Relations Board.

In addition to Mr. Bellavia and Mr. Blatt, Bellavia Blatt’s partners include Carol Crossett.  Ms. Crossett’s knowledge of estate planning, business succession, and federal and state tax matters helps her provide sound advice to Bellavia Blatt’s clients.
