Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, a premier law firm with offices across Long Island – and recently recognized by Forbes as a Top Corporate Law Firm in America – is delighted to announce that Donald J. Rassiger, Esq., has been promoted to Partner, effective January 1, 2021.
Leader of the firm’s sophisticated Construction group as well as Managing Attorney of its widely recognized Corporate group, Rassiger joined CMM as Counsel in 2016 and quickly became an indispensable resource for clients and colleagues alike. Having previously worked in operations and production, as well as having served as Chief Legal Officer of four companies, Rassiger has a unique understanding of the difference between business risk and legal risk. This special skill enables him to find creative solutions that achieve his clients’ desired results while complying with applicable laws, minimizing risk, and saving time and money. As a client recently described him, “Don’s ability to see where business needs intersect with legal compliance is well worth taking into your future and he can help cut the cord to the past.”
Rassiger has represented a wide range of construction clients including owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, construction managers, and program managers, and has also negotiated countless collective bargaining agreements with union representatives. At CMM, in addition to his construction-related work, he draws on his significant experience drafting and negotiating business deals, transactions, and contracts including financing transactions, teaming arrangements, joint ventures, insurance placement, IT matters, bank loans, and construction claims. In addition, he has successfully closed over one billion dollars in M&A deals, both acquisitions and divestitures. As a member of the firm’s COVID Response Team, Rassiger has also helped many businesses renegotiate their financial instruments and bank lines as a result of the economic fallout of the pandemic.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Don as a Partner,” said Managing Partner Joe Campolo. “Not only is his well-earned promotion a milestone professional achievement for him, but also for the firm. Despite the difficulties of 2020, CMM was able grow this year and become even stronger. Don is an excellent lawyer and valued colleague, and we look forward to growing together in 2021.”
