Bradford Kaufman, an attorney with Greenberg Traurig’s West Palm Beach practice, has been appointed co-president of the firm. Kaufman will work along side current co-president Ernest L. Greer.
“We are about big dreams, intense execution, and being one firm, without a headquarters, where merit is rewarded. Based on all those core values, there is no one in our firm more qualified to become our next co-president than Brad Kaufman,” Greenberg Executive Chairman Richard A. Rosenbaum and CEO Brian L. Duffy said in a joint statement.
Kaufman has spent 18 years at Greenberg. Before the promotion, he was senior vice president and treasurer at the firm and served as global chairman of Professional Development and Integration.
Kaufman has carved out a practice representing premiere Wall Street investment banks such as Morgan Stanley and its executives. He made recent headlines for his role as defense attorney for Roger Jenkins, a former Barclays Bank executive who is facing charges in the United Kingdom stemming from the financial crisis.
“It is a great source of pride to have been named co-president of our global and well-respected firm,” Kaufman said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to influence how we as a firm, and as a profession, address the needs of clients while developing new lawyers and new methods for the efficient delivery of legal services.”
