Melbourne, FL- Bloomberg Tax and Accounting presented the Leonard L. Silverstein Award to InterActive Legal Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Jonathan G. Blattmachr.
The Leonard Silverstein Lifetime Achievement Award, named after the founder of the Tax Management Portfolios for his longstanding contributions to the field of tax, is generally awarded to individuals that have demonstrated excellence in their field throughout their career, made contributions to the tax community at large, and contributed to the success of BNA’s Portfolios. A recent communique from an official at Blomberg Tax and Accounting had this to say about Jonathan: “There is no doubt that you [Jonathan Blattmachr] not only fit, but exceed by leaps and bounds, all criteria, and we would be honored to celebrate such contributions via this award.”
In receiving this award, Jonathan Blattmachr said, “One of the great honors I got, is… for 20 years, I was Leonard’s personal attorney. That was a great honor. I just adored the man and I’m just so sorry he isn’t with us anymore.”
