NEW YORK (May 2, 2014) –– Shareholders Mark A. Lopez and Daniel Serota from the international law firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, have been selected by The M&A Advisor to receive two of its 2014 ‘40 under 40’ Awards in the Legal Advisor Category. They will receive the award June 24, 2014 at an awards gala at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan.
According to The M&A Advisor’s website, the ‘40 Under 40’ Award recognizes the achievements of the next generation of M&A, Financing, and Turnaround professionals who have made rapid strides within their industry before the age of 40.
"Our firm may be large, but we are all about the future and growing the level of our client satisfaction, so this type of recognition means a lot to us," said Richard A. Rosenbaum, CEO of Greenberg Traurig. "Mark and Daniel are well deserving of these awards, but they and many others are the product of a system that empowers younger lawyers, encourages collaboration and rewards those who are finding new and superior ways to deliver exceptional value and quality to our clients. When you empower talented individuals on the ground, provide them support and resources and reward collaboration, the results are amazing."
Lopez, a shareholder in Greenberg Traurig’s Latin American and Iberian practice based in the Miami office, has advised multinational clients in connection with cross-border mergers and acquisitions as well as private equity and corporate financings throughout the United States, Latin America, Spain and the Caribbean.
Serota, a shareholder in the firm’s Corporate & Securities practice based in the New York office, concentrates his practice on mergers and acquisitions providing counsel for complex auctions, mergers, stock and asset purchases, hostile offers, joint ventures, proxy contest, and transactions in bankruptcy or with distressed entities. He advises clients in a wide array of industries, with a particular emphasis on technology, media and telecommunications, biogenetics and pharmaceuticals, financial institutions and insurance.
The M&A awards gala will take place in conjunction with the 2014 Emerging Leaders Summit – an exclusive event pairing ‘40 Under 40’ winners together with their mentors and other stalwarts, to introduce the ‘40 Under 40’ Award Winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements.
