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 eleven attorneys have been selected as 2018 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.

Three RCCB attorneys have been selected to the 2018 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list. No more than five percent of the lawyers in each state are selected. Eight 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 ten-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 eight RCCB attorneys selected to the Rising Stars list span three practice groups; Litigation, Private Client Services, and Business & Corporate. Partner Matthew Faranda-Diedrich, Partner Sean S. Litz, and Associate Alexander J. Nassar, are attorneys in RCCB’s Litigation Group, while Partner David Kovsky and Counsel Erin McQuiggan are attorneys in the Private Client Services Group. Dustin Covello is a Partner in the Tax Group, and Laura Reinhold and Matthew Brinker, are Associates in the Business & Corporate Group.

This is the seventh consecutive Rising Stars appearance for Faranda-Diedrich, third for Nassar, and second for Covello, Kovsky, Litz, and McQuiggan. It is the first appearance for Reinhold and Brinker.
