Andy Berger and Mark Jahnke Each Named "Lawyer of the Year"

CINCINNATI – Katz Teller attorneys Andy Berger and Mark Jahnke were recently selected by their peers as a Cincinnati “Lawyer of the Year” in Woodward/White's The Best Lawyers in America© 2017.  Their 2017 selections mark the third time for Andy and the fourth time for Mark to be awarded “Lawyer of the Year”.  The above attorneys were selected in the following categories:

  • Andy Berger – Securities / Capital Markets Law, Cincinnati
  • Mark Jahnke – Corporate Law, Cincinnati

Andy Berger’s ability to grasp the big picture while minding the details allows him to tackle incredibly complex transactions and achieve order and structure at macro and micro levels.  As anyone who has been through a merger or acquisition knows, they are major events that create wide-ranging issues, entail significant negotiation and generate reams of paper or digital documents for review.  In both general corporate and health care transactions such as these, Andy brings thoroughness, care and attention to detail balanced with creative, but practical, business strategies and advice.  In addition to his corporate board involvement in the non-profit sector and active participation in the local Jewish community, Andy is a long-time member of the firm’s Board of Directors.

Mark Jahnke’s reputation has been built on and staked to the special skill he brings to advising clients on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and other major corporate transactions. Several times Mark has represented one party in a deal only to be hired later by the other party in connection with a separate transaction.  In addition to handling a variety of matters relating to business organizations, including formation, organizational structure, owner/shareholder relationships, business succession and related issues, and representation of company C-level executives, Mark has represented a number of clients in significant acquisition, recapitalization and disposition transactions.

Andy and Mark have been pillars of the firm and leaders in their respective practices for years and their service and skill are certainly worthy of recognition.
