Seward & Kissel Names Anton Levchik Chief Financial Officer

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Seward & Kissel LLP announced today that Anton Levchik joined the firm as its Chief Financial Officer. Levchik comes to Seward & Kissel LLP from Foley Hoag LLP, where he held the same position. He brings significant experience leading financial operations of professional services organizations. Prior to Foley Hoag LLP, he served in senior finance roles across several global law firms: Clyde & Co., Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, and Linklaters LLP. 

“Adding Anton to the executive team is yet another strategic move to provide our world-class lawyers with equally talented leadership across the firm,” said Jim Cofer, managing partner of Seward & Kissel. “His financial stewardship will strengthen our firm’s foundation as we proceed toward an exciting future.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining a firm with Seward & Kissel’s reputation,” Levchik said. “The opportunity to work with such a talented group of lawyers is extremely exciting.”
