Seven RCCB Partners Return to 2019 Super Lawyers Lists


Philadelphia, PA - May 9, 2019

Royer Cooper Cohen Braunfeld LLC (RCCB), a law firm offering a distinctive combination of practical business acumen, legal expertise and entrepreneurial passion, today announced that thirteen attorneys have been selected as 2019 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.

Three RCCB attorneys have been selected to the 2019 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list. No more than five percent of the lawyers in each state are selected. Ten additional attorneys were selected for the Rising Stars List, which is comprised of only 2.5 percent of lawyers eligible for selection.

Managing Partner John E. Royer, Jr., and Executive Partner Neil A. Cooper, both from the firm’s Corporate & Business Group, as well as Litigation Partner Barry L. Cohen, a past Rising Star and now eleven time Super Lawyer, were all returning Super Lawyers.

Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

The ten RCCB attorneys selected to the Rising Stars list span four practice groups; Litigation, Private Client Services, Business & Corporate and Real Estate. Partner Matthew Faranda-Diedrich, Partner Sean S. Litz, and Associate Alexander J. Nassar, are attorneys in RCCB’s Litigation Group, while Partner David Kovsky, Counsel Erin McQuiggan and Associate Taylor Smith, are attorneys in the Private Client Services Group. Dustin Covello is a Partner in the Tax Group, Laura Reinhold and Matthew Brinker are Associates in the Business & Corporate Group, and Jennifer Tintenfass is an Associate in the Real Estate Group.

This is the eighth consecutive Rising Stars appearance for Faranda-Diedrich, also a Partner in the Business Restructuring and Bankruptcy Group, fourth for Nassar and Tintenfass, third for Covello, Kovsky, Litz, and McQuiggan, and second for Brinker, Reinhold and Smith.

In addition, RCCB has two Business Restructuring and Bankruptcy Partners previously selected as New York Super Lawyers. Marc Hirschfield has been named consecutively since 2011, and Marc Skapof since 2014.
