LOS ANGELES – Nov. 14, 2018 – Ervin Cohen & Jessup today announced that two of its Partners will take leadership positions with Geneva Group International (GGI), a worldwide alliance of well-established and experienced law, accounting and consulting firms committed to providing clients with specialist solutions for their international business requirements.
“We are truly thrilled to have the ability to tap Randy and Byron in such a strategic way,” said Claudio Cocca, chairman and founder of GGI. “Since Ervin Cohen & Jessup’s inception in our alliance, both Randy and Byron have been instrumental in our continued success.”
Randy S. Leff, Ervin Cohen & Jessup’s Co-Managing Partner and a Partner in the firm’s Litigation practice, has joined GGI’s Executive Committee. Serving in a strategic, advisory role is familiar territory for Leff as many of his clients have recruited him over the years to their management teams because his business acumen, entrepreneurial zeal and problem-solving skills give organizations a competitive advantage.
Byron Z. Moldo, chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy, Receivership and Creditors’ Rights practice, will serve as Global Vice Chair of GGI’s Debt Collection, Restructuring and Insolvency practice group. Moldo’s practice areas include bankruptcy, receivership, assignments for the benefit of creditors and all aspects of insolvency. He regularly serves as a Receiver in state and federal court cases, as an assignee for the benefit of creditors, and as a fiduciary in other court-supervised matters.
“GGI is one of the leading and the largest alliances of its kind throughout the world,” said Ervin Cohen & Jessup Co-Managing Partner Barry MacNaughton. “Our participation in GGI has been tremendous, particularly as it has exposed us to international resources, and we are pleased to have our Partners playing a pivotal role in its leadership.”
