Two New York-Based FordHarrison Attorneys Selected To Super Lawyers/Rising Stars 2012 List

Date   Oct 4, 2012

FordHarrison LLP, a national labor and employment law firm, is pleased to announce that Stephen E. Zweig has been named to the "2012 New York Super Lawyers - Metro" list and Mark A. Konkel has been selected to the "2012 New York Rising Stars - Metro" list.

Stephen Zweig is managing partner of the New York office.  He focuses his practice on executive compensation and the litigation of complex breach of contract and non-competition cases.  For companies and senior level executives, he negotiates all types of employment, retention, change in control, and separation agreements, and the compensation and benefit packages and post-employment restrictions that are central to these agreements. Stephen's negotiation strategies are derived from over 30 years experience in labor contract negotiations and employment litigation.  He received his JD from St. John's University School of Law in 1975.

Mark Konkel works closely with management to identify and resolve complex employment and labor law challenges and to actively reduce risk. When disputes arise, he protects companies' interests in federal and state court, arbitration, and before government agencies such as the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, and the National Mediation Board. Mark received his J.D. magna cum laude, from New York Law School in 2000.

Attorneys are selected for this honor through a statewide nomination process, peer review by practice area and independent research on candidates. The rigorous process is designed to identify lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.  Only five percent of attorneys in the state of New York are selected for inclusion in "Super Lawyers." 

The Rising Stars list recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state -- those who are 40 years old or younger or those who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
