Gershkow and Dennis Lazarev have been named to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.

Friedberg advises clients and businesses of all sizes for over 30 years on trademark and copyright law, unfair competition, art and entertainment matters, trade secrets, advertising, internet and cyber issues, rights of privacy and publicity, and general corporate and litigation matters. With a particular focus on entertainment and media companies, including advertising and marketing agencies, Randy often provides counsel on protection, licensing and enforcement of intellectual property rights – routinely finding creative solutions to highly technical and complex issues.

Reperowitz is a nationally recognized bankruptcy and commercial litigation attorney and co-chair of the firm’s bankruptcy, workouts & creditors’ rights group. A former partner at “Biglaw” firms and senior vice president and chief litigation counsel at CIT Group, Reperowitz uses her experience as in-house and law firm counsel to provide clients with pragmatic, business-minded advice and representation in all aspects of bankruptcy, business restructuring and commercial litigation matters. Reperowitz also has an active alternate dispute resolution practice and frequently serves as a mediator or arbitrator. She is listed on the panels of mediators and arbitrators maintained by the American Arbitration Association, the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York and the District of Delaware. She has represented clients in the financial services, healthcare, insurance, real estate, telecommunications, airline and general manufacturing sectors.

Gershkow focuses her practice on advising investment companies, independent trustees and investment advisers on regulatory and compliance matters and the applicability and interpretation of securities laws. She frequently counsels on the formation, registration, and ongoing compliance of investment companies, including exchange-traded funds (ETFs), money market funds, and multi-manager funds. Gershkow assists money market fund clients in addressing the many varied matters impacting money market fund management, operations, and compliance.
