TAMPA — Two of the region's more prominent asset recovery and receivership attorneys, Mark Kornfeld and Jordan Maglich, have switched firms.

The attorneys are now with the Tampa office of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, a national firm based in Pittsburgh. Coming from the Tampa office of Quarles & Brady, Kornfeld was named a shareholder at Buchanan Ingersoll.

"Mark and Jordan are excellent litigators whose insight and expertise will be a great addition to our Tampa office," says Hala Sandridge, shareholder and co-head of Buchanan Ingersoll's Tampa office. "Their practices will also be complementary to our financial industry focus and be of high value to clients in that sector."

Kornfeld is a commercial litigator with nearly 25 years of experience in domestic and international securities litigation. His clients include financial services, investment bankers, hedge fund managers, media companies, emerging companies, construction and real estate developers, Fortune 500 and private equity companies, executives and board officers, the release states. Kornfeld was also one of the few attorneys in the world to interview Bernie Madoff in prison, when he was a court-appointed attorney for the Securities Investor Protection Act trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities.

Maglich, a Business Observer 40 under 40 winner in 2019, has a practice that focuses on financial services and securities litigation matters, including working with broker/dealers and their associated persons on litigation and regulatory matters, counseling individuals and entities dealing with regulatory investigations and enforcement actions and representing receivers appointed at the request of state and federal regulators in matters involving allegations of investment fraud or wrongdoing, the release states.

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney has 450 attorneys and government relations professionals across 15 offices nationwide.
