Wurst Named College of Commercial Finance Lawyers Fellow

Jeffrey Wurst, a shareholder of Uniondale, NY-based law firm Ruskin Moscou Faltischek and chair its Financial Services Banking and Bankruptcy Group, was elected as a fellow of the American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers (ACCFL).

Wurst, a highly accredited commercial finance attorney, is the only attorney from Long Island having been elected to this small group of fewer than 250 select lawyers practicing in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The AACFL in comprised of commercial finance attorneys who have demonstrated the requisite integrity, skill and experience to qualify for fellowship. The fellows of the AACFL are commercial finance lawyers, jurists and academics who have not only achieved preeminence in the field of commercial finance law, but who have contributed significantly to commercial finance education through teaching, lecturing and published writings.

Wurst, a resident of Rockville Centre, NY stated, “I am both humbled and honored to have been elected. It is a great privilege to be elected as a fellow of the AACFL and one of the most valued pinnacles in my career.”

Mark Mulholland, managing partner of Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, said, “For over 25 years Jeff’s dedication to the practice of commercial finance law, has earned him the respect of his colleagues, his clients and peers in the industry. I rarely meet a lender or bank lawyer who does not know him and who does not speak highly of him. That is why they turn to him to handle complex financing transactions; bankruptcy litigations and appeals; and workouts.”

Wurst is well recognized for his expertise in asset-based lending and factoring and has extensive experience in both transactions and litigation of commercial finance, bankruptcy matters, workouts and turnaround situations. He is the chairman to the New York Institute of Credit, a past vice president of the Turnaround Management Association and a past president of its Long Island Chapter; a director of the Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys; a member of the American Bar Association’s Commercial Financial Services and Legal Opinions Committees; the American Bankruptcy Institute; the New York State Bar Association; the Nassau Bar Association; and a former director of the New York Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth.
