Blair Kaminsky and Eileen DeLucia Recognized as Notable Women in Law by Crain’s
New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP lawyers Blair Kaminsky and Eileen DeLucia have been named to Crain’s New York Business’ 2021 list of Notable Women in Law. This year’s list recognizes a diverse group of women from the New York City metro area who were chosen “not only for their skills and accomplishments, but also for their efforts to shore up the edifice of justice.”
A partner at the firm, Blair has a wide-ranging practice focused on complex commercial litigation. As Crain’s highlighted in her profile, Blair represents Visa in nationwide class actions and dozens of antitrust actions brought against the financial services firm. These antitrust actions seek rule changes and hundreds of billions of dollars in damages, and Blair has played a prominent, vital role in formulating strategy, taking and defending key depositions, and negotiating important deals with plaintiffs. Among other accolades, Blair has been recognized as a Rising Star for General Commercial Litigation by Euromoney, an Elite Boutique Trailblazer by The National Law Journal, and a Woman Worth Watching by Profiles in Diversity Journal.
In Eileen’s profile, Crain’s notes her extensive representation of clients in complex commercial litigation disputes at both the federal and state levels, and in international arbitrations. Eileen is part of the team leading a wave of cases arising from the financial crisis, including one that recovered $2.4 billion from the Lehman Brothers estate. Eileen’s active pro bono work has included leading a team of HSG lawyers in securing a successful settlement with the City of New York in favor of her client, a former Rikers Island detainee who alleged serious violations of his constitutional rights during his incarceration. She was recognized by Super Lawyers as one of the Top Women Attorneys in the New York Metro Area and as a Rising Star, and was named a Woman Worth Watching by Profiles in Diversity Journal.
HSG founding partner Dorit Ungar Black was recognized on last year’s list.
