From Crain's New York Business:
"The 100 New Yorkers named to the inaugural list of Leading Women Lawyers in New York City, powered by Crain’s Custom, are trailblazers who found multiple paths to excellence. Some are partners and practice leaders at the city’s big law firms, others corporate counsel at Manhattan companies. Some unabashedly champion their fellow minority female attorneys, while others feed their passions for public service by donating their time generously to pro bono causes. These are women who juggle both distinguished careers and exceptional civic and philanthropic activities.
The profiles in this report are drawn from submitted nomination materials as well as from Crain’s Custom research. No lawyer paid to be featured. There is an exceptional pool of talented female attorneys in New York. We recognize that this year’s inaugural list is not comprehensive, and look forward to a future of exceptional potential honoree nominations as the Leading Women Lawyers in New York City becomes a new tradition for the city’s legal community. Please join Crain’s Custom in congratulating a truly impressive inaugural class."
