Bridgeport, CT, January 6, 2011
David A. Ball, a principal of the firm, has been named as the new managing partner of Cohen and Wolf, P.C. Mr. Ball will replace Irving Kern, who served as managing partner from 1994 through 2010. Mr. Kern will continue as a principal of the firm.
The change in leadership comes as Cohen and Wolf celebrates its 60th Anniversary. The firm was started in 1951 by Herbert L. Cohen and Austin K. Wolf, working from a single office in Bridgeport. Since that time, the firm has expanded to 50 attorneys working in four offices, including Bridgeport, Danbury, Westport and Orange.
“Mr. Kern’s stewardship of the firm over the past 16 years has been exemplary and we are grateful for his service to the firm” says founding partner Austin Wolf. “I have every confidence that Mr. Ball will prove to be a great leader as well, continuing the firm’s traditions while moving us forward.”
