Recognized in both Capital Markets and Banking & Finance by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business every year since 2010, Josh is noted for being an “excellent all around” lawyer who is “super service-oriented,” a “standout performer” and for having “total command of the subject matter.’” He was also selected to the 2011-2017 editions of Chambers Global, World’s Leading Lawyers for Business, the 2010-2017 editions of The Legal 500 U.S., the 2011-2012 editions of IFLR1000, the 2012 edition of Who’s Who Legal and the 2007, 2010-2016 editions of New York Super Lawyers.
