Benchmark Litigation Names Holwell Shuster & Goldberg 2016 NY Law Firm of the Year
New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP has been named New York Law Firm of the Year by Benchmark Litigation. Benchmark Litigation presented the award last night at the annual U.S. awards ceremony in New York City.
“We’re overjoyed to receive this award,” said Holwell Shuster & Goldberg co-founding partner Judge Richard Holwell. “It was a great honor to be included among the elite firms nominated. We congratulate all of them and thank Benchmark Litigation sincerely for this honor.”
It has been four years since Judge Holwell left the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York to join his former colleagues Michael Shuster and Daniel Goldberg, as well as Dorit Ungar Black, in the formation of Holwell Shuster & Goldberg. In that time, the firm has been recognized nationally for its complex commercial litigation work, touching on antitrust, bankruptcy, complex financial instruments, intellectual property, and securities. The Benchmark Litigation honor comes one year after Holwell Shuster & Goldberg was named to The National Law Journal’s exclusive Litigation Boutiques Hot List.
In addition to the firm-wide recognition that Benchmark Litigation awarded to Holwell Shuster & Goldberg, six of the firm’s partners have received individual rankings: Dorit Ungar Black (Future Star); John DiMatteo (Litigation Star, Local Litigation Star); Daniel Goldberg (Local Litigation Star); Judge Richard Holwell (Litigation Star, Local Litigation Star); Avi Israeli (Future Star); and Michael Shuster (Litigation Star, Local Litigation Star).
