WHITE PLAINS, NY (October 5, 2023) – 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 2024 guide as a Litigation Star and a Future Star, respectively.

Benchmark Litigation is a trusted guide of the country’s leading litigation firms and lawyers. Those selected for the list consistently demonstrate excellence in their field and are duly recognized by their colleagues, peers, and clients.

Yankwitt and Hamerman are repeat honorees, recognized for their work on some of the highest profile litigations in the New York state and federal trial and appellate courts, involving business disputes, employment matters, criminal actions, and government investigations.

“We have been lauded as Westchester’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, complex litigation for more than 14 years,” said Yankwitt. “With a client roster that boasts Fortune 500 companies, more than 2,000 cases since the firm opened and on average two trials per year, our attorneys are a testament to what it is to have relentless dedication and unmatched prowess.”

Benchmark Litigation selected Yankwitt and Hamerman based on peer review and the firm’s compelling submission, which reflects the firm’s focus on complex and high-profile litigation. Highlights of the firm’s current docket include representing private jet operator Million Air in a $30 million lease dispute, one of Westchester’s largest and highest profile cases, the former CEO of crypto lender Celsius Network in multiple state and federal litigations and government investigations, and pharmaceutical giant Walgreens as local counsel in the massive, consolidated New York opioid case.
