Westchester, NY (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Dorf & Nelson LLP Managing Partner, Jon A. Dorf, is celebrating two decades practicing law in Westchester County, NY. This important business milestone coincides with Dorf & Nelson receiving the prestigious 2013 U.S. News & World Report first tier metro firm ranking. This award recognizes the firm’s pursuit of excellence, commitment to their clients and their breadth of experience.
According to Dorf, “Our firm’s sophisticated legal practice has evolved over two decades as we have grown to meet our clients’ needs. Our practice areas include Corporate Law, Commercial and Financial Services Litigation, Life Sciences, Intellectual Property, Real Estate, and Tax-Exempt Not-For-Profit Organizations. Our unwavering vision is continuously redirected to our hands-on, client-centered relationships just as we conducted business 20 years ago.”
In 2012, two new partners and several associates joined the ranks. The firm welcomed Scott D. Locke, Partner and Head of Dorf & Nelson’s Intellectual Property and Life Sciences practice areas, and Martha J. Flanders, a Partner with 30 years’ experience in Mergers and Acquisitions. The firm’s Litigation Department continues to expand with the addition of associate attorneys, Scott J. Greenblatt, Fletcher W. Moore and Schenley D. Vital.
“We are exceptionally proud and grateful for our continued growth,” said Jonathan B. Nelson, Partner and Director of Litigation. “We now oversee a staff of 35 and occupy 16,000 square feet of newly designed office space at The International Corporate Center in Rye, NY. He added, “2012 was an outstanding year and we are incredibly excited to see what 2013 brings.”
This was also a propitious year for the Partners of Dorf & Nelson as they received industry accolades for their accomplishments. Daniel R. Alcott, Partner and Department Head of the Tax Exempt Not-for-Profit Organizations Department, was selected as a 2012 Super Lawyer New York for the fifth year in a row as well as awarded Best Lawyer in America Non-Profit Charities, the New York Area and Westchester for more than three consecutive years. Jon A. Dorf was also recognized by Super Lawyers for the last three consecutive years and was also the recipient of the 2012 Equal Access to Justice Award, an honor extended by Legal Services of the Hudson Valley.
In addition, the Partners have been actively involved in civic service for over 20 years. Dorf is a Vice President and a Board Member of the Westchester County Bar Association (WCBA) and Chair for the WCBA Law Office Management Special Committee. He is also a Board Member and the General Counsel of the Business Council of Westchester. Dorf also served as the Former Chair, Committee on Law Practice Management of the New York State Bar Association. In his hometown, Dorf served as Town Prosecutor of Mamaroneck for seven years and now presides as President of the Orienta Point Association, his homeowner’s group. Since 2010, Daniel R. Alcott has been a Member of the Nonprofit Organizations Committee of the New York City Bar Association and a Member of Board of Directors for Legal Services of the Hudson Valley and Co-Chair of their Board Governance Committee.
Dorf & Nelson also enjoys giving of their time and resources to the community through fundraising events throughout the year.
