Honigman’s Joseph Aviv named one of Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s “Leaders in the Law”
Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP is pleased to announce that Joseph Aviv, a partner in its Litigation Department and office co-managing partner in the firm’s Oakland County office, has been named one of 30 “Leaders in the Law” for 2013 by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. An editorial panel selected the honorees based on criteria that included the ability to achieve success, display strength of character, show passion for the law and the profession, and solve problems while reflecting great integrity.
Aviv’s practice focuses on complex corporate, securities, and class action litigation, constitutional law, trusts and non-routine matrimonial and divorce matters involving the valuation of family businesses. He also serves Honigman as a member of our Board of Directors, as co-leader of the Securities and Corporate Governance Litigation Practice Group, as leader of the Matrimonial and Family Law Practice Group, and as co-leader of the Trusts and Estate Litigation Practice Group.
Michigan Lawyers Weekly also recognized Aviv in 2003 as “Lawyer of the Year” for his successful defense of Taubman Centers, Inc. in the hostile takeover by another national shopping center development company.
His accomplishments have been recognized by multiple peer and client rating organizations. Aviv has been recognized by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, from 2005 to 2012, as a Top Lawyer in the first tier of lawyers in the Litigation/General Commercial field in Michigan. The 2012 Chambers reports, “Joseph Aviv is ‘exacting in his analysis, articulate and persuasive,’ according to clients. He concentrates on securities and class action cases, as well as bet-the-company matters.” Aviv has been named in the “Top 10” by Michigan Super Lawyers for five straight years, 2008 to 2012, and recognized by Best Lawyers in America from 2006 to 2013.
He earned a J.D., cum laude, from Boston University and an A.B., cum laude, from Brandeis University.
