Greenberg Traurig attorney Bethani Oppenheimer was named a member of the inaugural class of the Commercial Finance Association’s 40 Under 40 Award winners.

Atlanta-based Oppenheimer was chosen in the Legal Services category from a national pool of attorneys in the finance industry. The award ceremony will be held in New York City on September 22 to recognize the award recipients.

Oppenheimer is an associate in the firm’s Financial Institutions practice and Business Reorganization & Financial Restructuring practice. She focuses on representing banks and other financial institutions in a variety of asset-based lending transactions, including loan syndications and participations, revolving and term loan facilities, secured and unsecured credit facilities, inter-creditor arrangements and acquisition financings.

David Kurzweil, shareholder, co-chair of the Financial Institutions Practice and chair of the Atlanta Business Reorganization & Financial Restructuring practice, is a longtime CFA member and vice chair of the 40 Under 40 awards committee.

“Greenberg Traurig’s continued global success can be attributed in large part to its investment in the future of the firm – our bright young attorneys and rising stars,” Kurzweil said. “Bethani is an excellent example of this practice. Her knowledge of finance, commitment to clients and ability to produce superior results is at a level far beyond her years. On behalf of the firm and its leadership, I congratulate Bethani on this well-deserved honor.”
