On July 1, two Bernkopf Goodman partners who have been practicing law for over 50 years, Ken Goldberg and Neil Markson, will wrap up their careers at Bernkopf Goodman to start a small firm near Ken’s home in Wellesley.

CEO Christopher Mordas

Bernkopf Goodman Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Mordas, said, “On clients that we share matters, we will work collaboratively and seamlessly with the departing partners.”

One year ago, Bernkopf Goodman hired Christopher Mordas as its CEO. Mordas is an attorney with 20+ years of executive and financial leadership experience. Mordas has an established reputation as a strategic leader in growing and guiding firms toward the future. Mordas said, “I joined Bernkopf because I saw an extremely successful, full-service firm with enormous legal talent across all practice areas. Bernkopf is a firm with an impressive client base, poised for growth, particularly with experienced partners in the prime of their careers and young partners just beginning to attract clients who recognize their skills.” Mordas has moved quickly to meet the increasing legal needs of Bernkopf Goodman’s existing and new clients by hiring three experienced and talented young attorneys.

Mordas, whose management philosophy is to encourage teamwork and collaboratively set goals for the lawyers, works closely with the partners of Bernkopf Goodman to meet and exceed client goals, which has continued through the recent pandemic. “As we saw the rapid spread of COVID-19, we prepared all of our attorneys and staff to work remotely from home before the Governor’s stay-at-home orders,” Mordas said. “As a result, we never missed a beat in being fully operational across all our practice areas. That was important, as we have been extremely busy. Now more than ever, I know that I made the right decision to be part of Bernkopf Goodman and am excited for our future.”

Ken Goldberg and Neil Markson will be joined by Ken’s son, Todd, as well as David Doyle and Jim Friedman.
