Associate Daniel Sullivan Named a 2015 Rising Star by the New York Law Journal
NEW YORK—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP associate Daniel Sullivan has been named to the New York Law Journal’s list of Rising Stars, a guide of lawyers under 40 years of age who have already made their mark on the New York legal community. A panel of judges reviewed nearly 300 nominations before selecting this year’s 50 Rising Stars.
Since joining HSG last year, Dan is helping the firm build an elite appellate practice, playing an integral role in three high-profile appellate matters. He has also had a lead litigation and appellate role in a series of massive RMBS putback cases that are determining financial responsibility for failed mortgage securitization transactions that hastened the credit crisis.
Dan focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, appeals, and transnational litigation. He previously served as a law clerk to the Honorable Antonin Scalia of the United States Supreme Court during October Term 2009, and before that to the Honorable Diarmuid F. O’Scannlain of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit during the 2008-2009 year.
The annual Rising Stars list recognizes attorneys who have established a record of accomplishments and demonstrated that they are top contributors to the practice of law and to the New York legal community. HSG founding partner Dorit Black was recognized as a 2014 Rising Star.
