He succeeds Peter R. Spirgel, current Managing Shareholder, who will step down after serving in the position since 1999. Mr. Spirgel will assume the role of Chairman of the firm’s Board of Directors. “I am confident that our firm will continue to evolve and flourish under Alan’s leadership and I look forward to turning my full attention to my clients’ needs and opportunities,” said Mr. Spirgel.
As the firm’s Managing Shareholder, Mr. Zuckerman will assume leadership of the firm’s strategic planning, administrative, management, and business development activities. He has previously served as the Chair of the Corporate and Tax Departments in addition to being a member of the Firm’s Board of Directors. As both an attorney and certified public accountant, Mr. Zuckerman brings his financial acumen and analytical skills to his leadership role.
Mr. Zuckerman began his career as a certified public accountant at Arthur Andersen from 1980 - 1982. After graduating magna cum laude from Temple University Beasley School of Law in 1985, Mr. Zuckerman joined Dechert in 1985 as an associate, and then moved to Flaster Greenberg in 1988. Mr. Zuckerman was the eighth attorney at the firm at that time, which now numbers more than 55 attorneys in five offices throughout the Mid- Atlantic region.
Mr. Zuckerman has a business practice with a concentration in taxation, business transactions, mergers and acquisitions (involving both public and privately held companies), healthcare, and estate planning and administration. He recently represented Stockton University in the sale of the former Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, as well as pharmaceutical and biotech-marketing firm in its merger into a large publicly held company.
“I am looking forward to working with my fellow shareholders and associates to bring Flaster Greenberg into its next stage of growth” said Mr. Zuckerman. “Our firm has thrived under Peter Spirgel's leadership, and I fully expect to add to that foundation of success and contribute to the next generation of Flaster Greenberg’s growth and continued quality of service to its clients.”
