Olshan Frome Wolosky LLP today announced that partners Stephen L. Ferszt, Eric L. Goldberg, Aliza F. Herzberg, Andrew B. Lustigman, Steve Wolosky and of counsel Samuel P. Ross have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2017.  Mr. Ferszt is a partner in the Employee Benefits practice, Mr. Goldberg is a partner and Mr. Ross is of counsel in the Real Estate Law practice, Ms. Herzberg is a partner in the Employment practice, Mr. Lustigman is a partner in the Advertising, Marketing & Promotions practice and Mr. Wolosky is a partner in the Activist & Equity Investment practice.

 “We are proud that six of our lawyers have been selected by our peers for inclusion in this list of outstanding lawyers,” said Thomas D. Kearns, a partner in Olshan's Real Estate Law practice.  "This is a notable distinction given the highly competitive selection process, particularly since all six of our lawyers have consistently appeared on the list ranging from two to ten years," Mr. Kearns continued.

Olshan has been consistently recognized as one of the premier mid-sized law firms in the country.  Most recently the firm was honored as a top 20 midsize law firm in The National Law Journal’s "2016 Midsize Hot List,” awarded to those firms, “charting winning courses in high-stakes matters that led to key victories in 2015” and was named to the National Law Journal’s inaugural NLJ 500 list. Other recent accolades include Legal 500 United States 2016’s recognition of Olshan as leading in Advertising and Marketing; 2016 Chambers USA’s acknowledgement of the Real Estate practice and recognition of two Olshan attorneys as “America’s Leading Lawyers for Business”; consistent top rankings across the board for Olshan’s Shareholder Activism practice in every league table and publication that covers shareholder activism; U.S. News-Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” 2016 “Tier 1” National Rankings for Securities and Capital Markets, “Tier 2” National Rankings for Real Estate Law, and “Tier 1” rankings in the New York City Metropolitan area for both Securities and Capital Markets and Real Estate Law, in which Olshan was the only midsize law firm in New York to receive a “Tier 1” ranking for Securities and Capital Markets; and thirty-nine attorneys were selected for Super Lawyers® 2015 New York Metro. 

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
