New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP associates Lauren Cole, Prishika Raj, and Victoria (Tori) Roeck have been recognized as 2023 Women Worth Watching by Profiles in Diversity Journal. The annual list honors professional women across the globe who are influencing their workplaces and industries.
Lauren maintains a broad complex commercial litigation practice at HSG, including mass torts, antitrust actions, contract litigation, and civil rights matters. She has worked on all aspects of high-stakes litigation, including at trial, and has experience in foreign arbitration matters. Some of her most recent notable work has involved large insurance cases related to the opioid crisis. Lauren serves as a liaison for HSG’s Associate Committee, and is a member of HSG’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and First-Generation Professionals Affinity Group.
Prishika has extensive experience in commercial and regulatory litigation, alternative dispute resolution, and class action lawsuits, particularly in matters involving securities and financial market regulation. Her recent noteworthy cases include defending Visa Inc. in a number of lawsuits filed by thousands of merchants and representing HSBC, U.S. Bank, and other bank trustees in breach of contract claims involving putbacks of residential mortgage-backed securities. Prishika co-chairs the HSG Women’s Affinity Network and works with New York Cares as a volunteer to mentor children from the greater New York Area in reading and sports.
Tori maintains a diverse commercial litigation practice at HSG, to which she brings substantial federal court experience. She has played a key role in representing media analytics startup Entertainment Data Oracle, Inc., both in a California lawsuit against the company alleging misappropriation of trade secrets, copyright violation, and breach of contract, and in a Delaware lawsuit brought by the company alleging tortious interference against a competitor. Tori mentors both junior associates and paralegal staff members at HSG, and she organizes an annual summer outing to play pétanque—a French lawn game—at the Brooklyn club where she competes in a weekly league.
Lauren, Prishika, and Tori will be featured in the summer issue of Profiles in Diversity Journal. Additional HSG lawyers previously named Women Worth Watching include Dorit Ungar Black, Blair Kaminsky, Jayme Jonat, Priyanka Timblo, Eileen Monaghan DeLucia, Karen Sebaski, Nina Kanovitch Schiffer, and Alison Miller.
