White Plains, NY (May 11, 2023) – Yankwitt LLP, Westchester County’s go-law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, has hired Corey Briskin, a seasoned and highly credentialed trial attorney who served as an Assistant District Attorney in Nassau and New York Counties and, most recently, as a federal law clerk to the Hon.
