Since emigrating from Russia in 1989, Mr. Paykin has lived in multiple countries, owned multiple successful businesses in the financial and IT worlds, and now acts as Managing Director and sole owner of The Law Office of Alexander Paykin, P.C., while also overseeing a technology and finance consultancy catering to law firms and other professionals, a real estate brokerage and a real estate holding company.  His diverse life experiences have helped him to understand different mentalities, cultures, and points of view, making him an effective advocate for many complex issues.  Mr. Paykin’s firm is modeled as a high-tech client-centered law firm, focusing on delivering efficient services in litigation and complex transactions relating to business/commerce, finance, and real estate.

Mr. Paykin regularly teaches continuing legal education (CLE) courses to fellow attorneys, on behalf of the American Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, and other attorney associations and groups.  He has been repeatedly published in the New York State Bar Association Journal, on topics ranging from mutual insurer demutualization and the definition of policyholder for demutualization payout purposes, to artificial intelligence in the practice of modern law.

Mr. Paykin knows and understands the value of hard work and prioritizes giving back to his community whenever he can.  He sits on three 501(c)(3) non-profit boards, including a veterans’ needs charity called General Needs, a domestic violence shelter network called Brighter Tomorrows where he serves as Secretary of the Board and a community improvement charity known as the Commack-Kings Park Charitable Fund where he previously served two terms as President of the Board and is now still serving on the Board.  Mr. Paykin is also a former president of his Rotary Club and is a Paul Harris Fellow, a Paul Harris Society Member and an active Major Donor to the Rotary Foundation.  His firm is a major donor to General Needs.
