New Jersey Law Journal Professional Excellence

Perhaps there’s nothing differentiating a “Jersey deal” from any other, aside from a hint of swagger, but in the first installment of “Jersey Dealmakers of the Year,” the Law Journal set out to recognize excellence in corporate, M&A, real estate, bankruptcy, and other transactional practices in the Garden State.

Lawyers in these practices might not argue before judges, or see their names on important briefs, or be quoted in news reports about the day’s blockbuster verdict. But they perform an equally important task for their firms and clients.

We congratulate the winners, who were nominated both as individuals and groups:

  • Chiesa Shahinian & GiantomasiMergers & Acquisitions
  • Flaster/GreenbergMergers & Acquisitions
  • Donald Pepe, Scarinci HollenbeckReal Estate
  • Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & PerrettiReal Estate
  • Andrew Sherman, Sills Cummis & GrossBankruptcy

The winners will be profiled in the Law Journal’s upcoming Professional Excellence magazines and honored June 21, 2018, at the Professional Excellence Event at Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park. The event will feature numerous other recognitions, including Lifetime Achievement awards, New Leaders of the BarLegal and Litigation Departments of the Year, and the announcement for Attorney of the Year winner.

We look forward to seeing you there.
