Cooperman, a partner in the firm’s corporate department, and Scharf, a partner in the business litigation department, were elected by the firm’s partnership in September to lead the firm. They succeed David A. Scherl, who becomes chairman emeritus and of counsel after serving as the firm’s chairman and managing partner for more than 17 years.
“We are excited about this new chapter in Morrison Cohen’s history and about the opportunities for leading the firm to continued growth in this new decade and beyond,” Scharf said. “We are honored to lead the firm during this important time.”
Cooperman added: “David Scherl built a strong foundation during his tenure that will enable us to continue to provide excellent client service, attract top-notch talent, and usher Morrison Cohen into a strong and prosperous future.”
