Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. Managing Partner Wins Two New CLLA Offices
Robert S. Bernstein accepts appointments that promote ethics and education
Lately a strong spotlight has been focused on the subject of ethics in the business world. You can’t turn on the TV or open a newspaper without seeing evidence of some corporation’s latest ethical lapse. It’s a topic that has been on the mind of Robert S. Bernstein, Esquire, Managing Partner of Bernstein-Burkley, P.C., in a very personal way.
At the Commercial Law League of America (CLLA) annual convention- held in Park City, Utah, on July 17th, 2002-Bernstein was appointed Chair of the newly formed Ethics and Professionalism Department.
Later, on July 22, at a meeting of the CLLA Fund For Public Education, he was elected to the Board of Directors.
The CLLA is North America’s leading organization of collections, creditors’ rights and bankruptcy professionals. It has approximately 3,500 members in the United States and in dozens of other countries.
Bernstein is a well-known speaker who often addresses ethics and related topics. He has also published Bernstein’s Dictionary of Bankruptcy Terminology for clients and associates of his firm, and also provides monthly advisories for his clients on issues relevant to today’s business world.
He says he considers his affiliation with the CLLA an investment in the already-stellar reputation of his Pittsburgh-based family-owned and managed law firm.
“Bernstein-Burkley, P.C. holds itself to the highest possible standards,” he explains. “It’s only natural that we would be involved in a well-respected organization that promotes consummate professionalism and ethical business practices. Our employees, associates and especially our clients deserve nothing less. I am excited about these two appointments and look forward to serving with the best of my abilities.”
