Philippe D. Radley practiced in the areas of corporate business, intellectual property and immigration law. His fluency in Russian, French and Spanish was an integral component of his legal practice.
For more than 36 years, Philippe advised foreign businesses and companies on the requirements of U.S. federal and state laws and regulations relating to their businesses or individual situation. Together, with his partners, he worked not only with foreigners seeking to establish a presence in the United States but also with U.S. business ventures seeking to expand into global markets.
French-born and lycee educated, with a Ph.D from Harvard University, where he was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow, before practicing law, Philippe was a professor of Russian language and literature at Amherst College. He was nominated for a National Book Award for his translation of the Italics Are Mine, Nina Barbarov. He attended the University of Chicago Law School and graduated from New York Law School. He belonged to numerous New York City civic and commercial organizations.
