Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green, Pierre Georges Bonnefil has been appointed a Chevalier in the French Légion d’Honneur by the Republic of France. The designation was presented to Bonnefil by French Consul General Bertrand Lortholary at an official ceremony at the French Consulate in New York City on May 5, 2015.

Established by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802, the Légion d’Honneur has been France’s highest award and one of the most coveted distinctions in the world. This highly regarded award is given annually to individuals who are most committed to preserving French heritage and connecting French culture to their work in the United States and who most exhibit outstanding public service. In 2007, Bonnefil also received the Ordre national du Mérite.
