CMM is proud to announce that Partner Jeffrey Basso has been recognized with a Leadership in Law Award.

The Leadership in Law Awards recognize individuals whose leadership has had a positive impact on the legal profession and the Long Island community. Basso will receive his award at a ceremony on November 21, 2019 at Crest Hollow Country Club.

Basso will be honored in the Partner category in recognition of his leadership in handling client matters, managing CMM’s litigation department, and mentoring other attorneys at the firm.

An aggressive litigator, Basso has vast experience prosecuting and defending matters on behalf of business owners, corporations, corporate officers, shareholders, and investors in a variety of commercial litigation matters. He is also experienced in representing clients in business divorce matters, including the negotiation of creative strategies to divide assets, and has earned a professional certificate from the prestigious National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) for trial skills. Basso also manages CMM’s busy litigation department, appropriately staffing matters in the most efficient way possible while also directing litigation strategy.

A leader early in his career, Basso received the Leadership in Law Award in the Associate category in 2015 in recognition of his work ethic and the example he sets for others at the firm. Many attorneys at CMM, across all practice areas, seek him out as a mentor for his ability to offer guidance while also pushing them to grow as lawyers.
