NEW YORK, April 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading litigation firm Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason, Anello & Bohrer, P.C., has been named by The National Law Journal to the 2012 Midsize Hot List, one of only 20 law firms selected for this honor. The National Law Journal noted that when considering the firm's record for inclusion the Midsize Hot List, "...mere outcomes wouldn't tell the whole story in a world where keeping the client out of the headlines sometimes matters as much as anything else."
Morvillo Abramowitz was recognized for recent cases centering on insider trading, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, stock-options backdating, tax shelters and tax fraud and for literally being "lawyers' lawyers" for representations of attorneys, accountants and physicians, among others. The National Law Journal highlighted the firm's work on behalf of Afshin Mohebbi, the former president and chief operating office of Qwest Communications Inc. in connection with the complete dismissal of U.S. Securities Exchange Commission charges against him and also highlighted the firm's role in U.S. v. Goncalves a matter noted as the largest prosecution of individuals since the U.S. Department of Justice began enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) that was dismissed in February 2012.
When asked what sets Morvillo Abramowitz apart from other firms, partner Elkan Abramowitz said, "We maintain a collegial, cooperative, nonhierarchical atmosphere which produces the highest quality work product that in our view exceeds the work done at other firms, large and small," He continued, "We have been able to attract the cream of the crop of available associate talent who come to us because they want to be part of this ethos, which is not duplicated in any other private firm of which I am aware."
