"It is very exciting to have Jeff's insight not only on legal matters, but on class action settlement administration issues, many of which he has dealt with first hand," Mr. Guior added.  "He will enable FRS to continue to bring value to our clients."

"I couldn't be happier," Leibell said.  "I can't think of a more perfect fit both because of the integrity and professionalism of the FRS team, and because my class action experience."
