New York, NY - September 12, 2019

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 2019 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.

Hirschfield, who made the list for the ninth consecutive year, and Skapof, who made the list for the sixth consecutive year, reside in RCCB’s New York City office as members of the firm’s Business Restructuring & Bankruptcy, Litigation, International and Corporate & Business practice areas. They focus their practice on the representation of 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.

Hirschfield and Skapof also regularly represent lenders and borrowers in traditional financing transactions and are also accomplished commercial litigators. Their international practice has included work on cross-border insolvency cases in many countries including Canada, Australia, Bermuda, and the British Virgin Islands. In addition, Hirschfield was also included in the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Editions 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. Super Lawyers Magazines also feature editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in the practice of law. In May, RCCB announced that three attorneys at the firm were named Pennsylvania Super Lawyers while ten others were recognized as Rising Stars.
