NEW YORK, October 19, 2016 – Benchmark Litigation ranked Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello PC in Tier 1 nationally in the White-Collar Crime/Enforcement/Investigations category, Highly Recommended (the guide’s top honor) in New York, and recognized all of the firm’s partners. Acknowledged as “Litigation Stars” in the practice area of White-Collar Crime/Enforcement/Investigations are Elkan Abramowitz, Richard F. Albert, Robert J. Anello, Lawrence Iason, Jonathan S. Sack, and Richard D. Weinberg. Partners Judith L. Mogul and Edward M. Spiro are named “Litigation Stars” in the area of General Commercial Litigation, and Jeremy H. Temkin was named a “Litigation Star” in both the areas of White-Collar Crime/Enforcement/Investigations and General Commercial Litigation. Furthermore, Lawrence S. Bader, Benjamin S. Fischer, Catherine M. Foti, Brian A. Jacobs, Jodi Misher Peikin, and Robert M. Radick have been selected as “Future Stars.”

In addition to being named a “Litigation Star,” partner Elkan Abramowitz is listed as a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer in America.” The winners were chosen on a geographically diverse and intensive peer-and-client review-driven study over the six months of the research as being the elite trial strategists in their respective fields. He was also ranked as a national “Top 10 Practitioner” in the practice area of White-Collar Crime/Enforcement/Investigations.

Benchmark Litigation notes one peer’s observation that “many other firms are trying to ramp up their white-collar practices right now, hiring aggressively out of the government and so forth, but Morvillo Abramowitz still has an edge on most of them. Not only have their lawyers been at this game longer than most who are still practicing, but they are seasoned with years of wisdom and trial experience. They know what works and what doesn’t, what arguments will hold up and when to employ them. And for a relatively small firm, their bench is surprisingly deep.” Clients have expressed their appreciation as well. One applauds Morvillo Abramowitz by stating that the firm is “simply the best at what they do.” Another confirms, “if you’re in need of counsel regarding really serious concerns, you don’t mess around and ‘window shop.’ You just go straight to the experts – you go to Morvillo.”
