The partners of Rivkin Radler recently announced that they have elected Evan H. Krinick of Plainview as managing partner. Mr. Krinick will succeed William M. Savino, who has served as the firm’s managing partner since 2000.
In an announcement to the firm, Mr. Savino said, “Serving as the Firm’s Managing Partner for the past thirteen years has been my privilege - my joy - and the most gratifying service of my professional career. Please join me in congratulating Evan. We all commit to him our confidence and our full support knowing that the Firm has a great leader in him.”
“I am excited to follow in Bill’s footsteps and lead this great Firm. We will continue to emphasize superior service to our clients and legal excellence in all of our representations. I hope to continue the Firm’s success in expanding our talent pool by adding more quality attorneys to our team,” said Mr. Krinick.
Evan H. Krinick is a litigator, with a specialty in appellate matters. Since joining the firm in 1987, following two years as a law clerk to a judge on the New York Court of Appeals, Mr. Krinick has been involved in numerous high profile and legally significant matters. Most recently, he has been retained by the Long Island Power Authority to represent it in all litigation relating to matters arising from Superstorm Sandy.
