Benchmark Litigation Recognizes Russell Yankwitt and Dina Hamerman as 2022 “Stars”

WHITE PLAINS, NY (October 5, 2021) –Yankwitt LLP, Westchester County’s go-to law firm for high-stakes and bet-the-company litigation, announced today that Managing Partner Russell Yankwitt and Executive Director and Partner Dina Hamerman have been named to Benchmark Litigation’s 2022 guide as a Litigation Star and a Future Star, respectively.

The guide identifies law firms and attorneys who display the ability to consistently handle high-stakes, complex cases. The list of “local litigation stars” for each state reflects individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.

“It is an honor to be recognized by such a prestigious publication that focuses squarely on litigation,” said Yankwitt.

“Being a Westchester firm that shares this accomplishment with New York City’s s largest and most prominent law firms and lawyers speaks to our work product and results. Though our accomplishments are always for our clients, awards like this and the Chambers USA ranking we received earlier this year, are truly gratifying.”

Researchers at Benchmark Litigation make their selection after reviewing extensive case submissions by the participating law firms and conducting interviews with attorneys and their clients.

In addition to Benchmark Litigation and Chambers, the firm has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America, Best Law Firms, New York Metro Super Lawyers, the Business Council of Westchester’s Rising Stars and Best Companies to Work for in New York.
