Media Source: Long Island Business NewsOn October 7, 2010. Meyer Suozzi was inducted into Long Island Business News’s 50 Around 50 Awards Class of 2010. This award is presented to 50, or so, Long Island companies and business leaders who have chalked up five decades, or so, of success. Meyer Suozzi received recognition as the region’s most historic law firm. When the late, legendary John F. ('Jack') English founded this law firm in 1960, his vision was to build a law practice staffed by only the most talented and respected attorneys. 50 years later, Meyer, Suozzi, English and Klein, P.C., a law firm comprising some of the most celebrated legal professionals and former public servants, is testament to his foresight and resolve. Our ranks boast the unparalleled expertise of lawyers whose resumes include New York State Appellate Division justice, New York State Supreme Court justice, White House deputy chief of staff, New York State commissioner of labor, New York State senator, New York secretary of state, New York City deputy mayor, Suffolk County executive, town attorney and New York State Bar Association president. We are proud, too, of our bipartisan culture; our attorneys have held high positions on both sides of the political aisle. We have grown exponentially through strategic acquisitions as well as by the achievements of our top attorneys. Their careers illustrate how we earned our well-deserved reputation as a firm with street smarts in the corridors of power. These leaders helped shape the character of our state and our nation, their accomplishments in civic service, from the trenches of local community boards to the farthest reaches of federal government.
