Neil A. Goldberg and Thomas F. Segalla were honored with the Distinguished Alumni Award for Private Practice by the SUNY Buffalo Law Alumni Association at its 54th Annual Alumni Dinner, held May 11, 2016. The awards — established by the UB Law Alumni Association’s Board of Directors in 1963 — recognize the contributions its alumni have made in the legal profession and the community in which they serve.
Neil and Tom (graduates in 1973 and 1972, respectively) were honored alongside six other UB Law alumni and Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, who was recognized for her contributions to the legal community as a non-alumnus. The pair have worked together for more than 40 years, setting out in 2001 with a small group of five other partners — including Managing Partner Richard J. Cohen — to form Goldberg Segalla, which is today one of the fastest-growing law firms in the country with nearly 300 lawyers across 19 offices in nine states and in London.
