Bernard Wald joined the firm in 1955 after graduating first in his class from the New York University School of Law, where he was the Decision Editor of the New York University Law Review. He is, and has for many years been, the head of the Corporate and Securities Department of Herzfeld & Rubin. During the more than fifty years that he has been practicing law at the firm, he has been lead counsel in a broad spectrum of sophisticated and complex corporate and commercial matters, involving a wide range of manufacturing, distribution, financial and other entities. His diverse practice has included the acquisitions and dispositions of businesses and a variety of commercial contracts, as well as more general corporate advisory work, not only for public and privately-owned enterprises, but for families and individuals as well. He has, in this practice, put to good use his magna cum laude degree in accounting from the City College of New York School of Business and Public Administration (now Baruch College), where he was the Editor of The Accounting Forum and President of The Accounting Society.

In addition to his corporate and commercial law practice, Mr. Wald has participated extensively in major litigation, particularly in cases involving novel Constitutional or statutory issues. Among these cases have been appeals before the United States Supreme Court and the New York Court of Appeals which successfully established fundamental restrictions on the jurisdiction of federal and state courts over foreign entities. In other major cases, he succeeded in establishing key principles of commercial and import-export law, particularly in the letter of credit area.
