Congratulations to our three Member Firms of the Year, awarded at the GGI World Conference, Bangkok, Thailand

Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP

Randy Leff and Gary Friedman attended the GGI World Conference in Bangkok to collect their award. In response to receiving GGI’s Member Firm of the Year award, Randy Leff said, "For us the 2016 GGI Member Firm of the Year award is a very special honor. Being recommended by other GGI member firms demonstrates that our creative, solution oriented approach to representing clients is appreciated by our GGI colleagues.  On behalf of the management and all our staff, I kindly thank all the GGI delegates who nominated us.  Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP is very proud to receive this award and to be part of the GGI family.
