Royer Cooper Cohen Braunfeld LLC (RCCB), a law firm offering a distinctive combination of practical business acumen, legal expertise and entrepreneurial passion, is pleased to announce that Partners Marc E. Hirschfield and Marc Skapof have been selected to the 2017 New York Metro Super Lawyers list. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the New York metropolitan area are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive this honor.
“Since joining RCCB, Hirschfield and Skapof have each provided our clients with invaluable legal counsel that complements our sophisticated corporate and litigation practices,” said John E. Royer Jr., Managing Partner at RCCB. “Both being named to the Super Lawyers list in consecutive years is a testament to their hard work and the substantial expertise they have each developed over their years of practice.”
Hirschfield, who made the list for the seventh consecutive year, and Skapof, who made the list for the fourth consecutive year, reside in RCCB’s New York City office as members of the firm’s Business Restructuring & Bankruptcy Group. In their practices, Hirschfield and Skapof represent debtors, debtor-in-possession lenders, secured and unsecured creditors, and creditors’ committees, purchasers and sellers of distressed debt, and asset acquirers in both out-of-court workouts and bankruptcy cases. They have worked on cross-border insolvency cases in many countries including Canada, Australia, Bermuda, and the British Virgin Islands. In addition, Hirschfield and Skapof regularly represent lenders and borrowers in traditional financing transactions and are also accomplished commercial litigators. Hirschfield was also included in the 2018 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, 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 Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country.
