Marks Paneth & Shron LLP has promoted Dawn Rhodes as a Partner in the Tax Practice, Paul Bercovici as a Principal in the Tax Practice, and Josefina Tranfa-Abboud as a Principal in the Litigation and Corporate Financial Advisory Services Group.

He holds a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Windsor. He is also a member of the New York State Bar Association.

Josefina Tranfa-Abboud, holding degrees in economics from the Universidad Central de Venezuela and Florida State University, provides clients with economic analysis related to modeling and estimation of economic damages in labor and employment disputes as well as commercial disputes. She is fluent in both Italian and Spanish as well.

“They embody the firm’s commitment to helping our clients navigate this increasingly complex economic and tax environment,” further commented Harry Moehringer, a co-managing partner.
