NEW YORK, October 1, 2020 – Benchmark Litigation ranked Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello PC Tier 1 nationally in the White-Collar Crime category, Highly Recommended (the guide’s top honor) in New York, and recognized the firm’s partners. Acknowledged as “Litigation Stars” in the practice area of White-Collar Crime are Elkan Abramowitz, Richard F. Albert, Robert J. Anello, Benjamin S. Fischer, Catherine Foti, Lawrence Iason, Jonathan S. Sack, Jeremy H. Temkin, and Richard D. Weinberg. Partner Edward M. Spiro was named “Litigation Star” in the area of General Commercial Litigation. Partners Catherine M. Foti, Christopher B. Harwood, Brian A. Jacobs, Telemachus P. Kasulis, and Robert M. Radick have been selected as “Future Stars.”

As noted by a peer, “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 client applauds Morvillo Abramowitz and states 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.”
