Leonard Rivkin Inducted Into Long Island Business Hall of FameDecember 10, 2015 |
UNIONDALE, NY – Rivkin Radler is proud to announce that our Founding Partner, Leonard Rivkin, was among a select group of inaugural inductees for Long Island Business Hall of Fame.
Long Island Business Hall of Fame, created by the Long Island Business News, recognizes the accomplishments of Long Island’s most impactful business leaders past and present. These business icons have long demonstrated remarkable leadership skills, integrity and vision.
With decades of experience as a national trial counsel in high profile, landmark, and precedent-setting cases, Len served as lead counsel on the Agent Orange class action suits and was national coordinating counsel for a major asbestos manufacturer in claims against the United States and the company’s government contractor defense. He represented a major insurer in one of the largest bank failures in American history. Throughout his career, Len has represented insurers’ interests in some of the most challenging environmental-related insurance coverage litigation across the United States.
When asked, “What do you attribute your success to?” Len replied, “The essence of my approach has always been to take the initiative! Growing and maintaining Rivkin Radler took a lot of hard work and long hours coupled with drive and determination. I have been privileged with having many great partners and a dedicated professional staff. I just love a good fight – legally, of course – and my professional life has been both challenging and rewarding. I am especially grateful for our many happy and loyal clients, without whom none of this would have been possible.”
Len served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was awarded two Purple Hearts and the Silver Star.
Len was recognized at a gala dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club on Thurs., Nov. 12.
