Ronkonkoma, NY – Continuing its winning streak in the Leadership in Law Awards by Long Island Business News, Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, a premier law firm with offices in Ronkonkoma and Bridgehampton, announced that two of its attorneys will be recognized at this year’s awards ceremony. Christine Malafi and Donald Rassiger will accept their awards at a gala dinner on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. The Leadership in Law Awards recognize individuals whose leadership has had a positive impact on the legal profession and the Long Island community.
Malafi will be honored in the Partner category. She chairs the Corporate department at CMM, where she focuses on mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, and complex transactions, and also maintains a busy Labor & Employment practice, serving in a general counsel role for many of the firm’s internationally based clients. Prior to joining the firm, Malafi earned the distinction of being the first woman and youngest person ever to serve as Suffolk County Attorney, where for eight years she focused on obtaining jury verdicts in favor of the County, enforcing anti-discrimination laws, and protecting children from harm. Today, in addition to her legal work, Malafi focuses on advancing the interests of women and girls. She serves on the boards of the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County and Natasha’s Justice Project, and is also a longtime Girls Inc. volunteer. Malafi also serves on the Board of Governors of Touro Law School and the New York State Pro Bono Scholars Task Force.
Rassiger achieved distinction in the Counsel category. Chair of the firm’s Construction department and a member of the Corporate and M&A teams, Rassiger has represented clients on all sides of the table including owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, architects, construction managers, and program managers. Having served as Chief Legal Officer of four companies and created the General Counsel role at three of them, he understands how management thinks—a unique perspective he brings to all matters he handles. In addition to his professional endeavors, Rassiger serves the community through his longtime involvement with the Joe Namath Celebrity Golf Classic, a major fundraiser for the March of Dimes. He also serves as a mentor to his CMM colleagues looking to emulate his successful career path, offering them guidance on both legal strategy and career development.
