Kozyak Tropin Throckmorton Names Cori Lopez-Castro Managing Partner
Lopez-Castro to Focus on Managing the Firm’s Continued Growth,
Addition of New Attorneys, and Tradition of Community Outreach
MIAMI – February 5, 2018 – Kozyak Tropin Throckmorton today announced that Cori Lopez-Castro has been named managing partner. She will serve a one-year term in this role as part of the firm’s rotation of managing partners. Lopez-Castro, who has been a partner of the firm since 1998, also was managing partner from 2011 to 2012.
Lopez-Castro concentrates her practice on bankruptcy, receiverships, and commercial litigation matters. Her practice reflects her extensive experience and expertise with bankruptcy reorganizations and liquidations, receiverships, debt restructuring, and creditors’ rights. Her community and professional involvement includes being elected to serve from 2006-2007 as the second woman president of the Cuban American Bar Association, an organization with which she has been actively involved for over 20 years.
“I am honored to be named managing partner of the firm that has been my second home for over 27 years and has granted me the opportunity to grow professionally and do what I love most,” Lopez-Castro said. “In this role, I plan to focus on managing the firm’s continued growth, maintaining the quality of our brand and continuing our tradition of giving back to the community that has given us so much.”
Added Lopez-Castro: “Good management doesn’t just happen – – it requires hiring and cultivating top-flight lawyers who share our team approach. Right now, Javier López and his team are preparing for trial defending an international bank; Harley Tropin and Javier are currently defending an international law firm in a legal malpractice case; and our litigation and bankruptcy departments are about to get involved in a major Ponzi scheme case. Our lawyers are our most valuable assets, and managing them is my top priority.”
Harley Tropin, firm president, said she was the perfect choice because she embodies the two values that make a successful lawyer and firm: “winning cases and having great relationships with clients, opponents, and everyone with whom she comes into contact. Just as important, it’s fun working with her while we add new attorneys and integrate them into our firm and cases.”
