Russell Yankwitt Selected to Serve on Law360’s Hospitality Editorial Board
White Plains, NY (April 7, 2021) – Yankwitt LLP is thrilled to announce that Russell Yankwitt, the firm’s founder and managing partner, has been selected to serve on Law360’s Hospitality Editorial Advisory Board. Yankwitt was selected based on his contributions to the firm’s thriving Hospitality practice, which handles litigation for casinos, hotels, and restaurants throughout New York and New Jersey.
The purpose of the Editorial Advisory Board is to provide feedback on how Law360 can improve its coverage and to serve as potential sources to Law360’s reporters.
“I am looking forward to participating in Law360’s Hospitality Editorial Advisory Board,” shared Yankwitt, who starts each day reading the digital legal publication. “I consider Law360 my go-to for legal news, and I am confident I will add meaningful insight on the hospitality sector given the firm’s successful Hospitality practice representing local and national companies such as Landry’s Inc. and Hillstone Restaurant Group.”
Yankwitt LLP’s dominance in the hospitality sector was demonstrated in 2016, when the firm was named “Law Firm of the Year” at the Landry’s Inc. Leadership Conference – the first time Landry’s recognized a law firm at its annual conference. Since then, the firm’s Hospitality practice has experienced substantial growth to include litigations in the state and federal courts throughout New York and New Jersey.
