“I am honored in joining Rimon to take a place among an esteemed international fellowship of highly accomplished like-spirited colleagues. For 35 years I have had a passion for grappling with challenging issues confronting the clients I serve in a career of evolving focus on cross-border work and complex and novel financing work. I am very happy now to have the opportunity to benefit from the unique and cutting-edge platform that Rimon will afford me for further evolution of that career in a new dynamic of efficacy for those clients and for me,” said Mr. Young.
Mr. Young earned a J.D. from the University of Chicago, and an A.B. from Columbia University where he was magna cum laude.
