Coran & Ober, as it was originally known, was founded in the 1960s by brothers-in-law Samuel Coran and Ralph Ober. Since its inception the firm has focused on commercial law and serviced the wholesale grocery industry. In 1979, Simeon Soterakis, a solo practioner with a strong commercial real estate practice merged with Coran & Ober to form Coran, Ober & Soterakis.
After the retirement of Mr. Coran and Mr. Ober, under the leadership of Mr. Soterakis, the firm expanded into a variety of areas including real estate development and finance. Mr. Soterakis pioneered the application of Article 71 of the NY Civil Practice Law, Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code and the common law plenary remedy of Replevin to effectively enforce the rights of commercial creditors.
