Yankwitt LLP Expands Litigation Team with Jonathan Ohring, Another Former Big Law NYC Attorney and Federal Law Clerk

Ohring spent 10 years working for global law firms Milbank LLP and Dechert LLP

White Plains, NY (June 29, 2022) – Yankwitt LLP, Westchester County’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, has added to its roster of former Big Law attorneys and federal law clerks with the hiring of Jonathan Ohring as counsel in the firm’s White Plains office.

Ohring, an attorney with more than a decade of litigation experience, joins Yankwitt LLP from the premier global law firm Milbank LLP. Prior to Milbank, Ohring was an associate in the litigation department of mega-firm Dechert LLP and served as a federal law clerk to the Honorable Charlene E. Honeywell of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

“Jonathan is the epitome of what we look for in a senior attorney,” shared Managing Partner Russell Yankwitt, who has assembled a premier, senior litigation team of highly credentialed attorneys. “He has the experience we require of our team: clerking for a federal court judge, working for a global law firm and handling complex, high-stakes litigations.

We are thrilled to have Jonathan on board and know we will benefit from his breadth and depth of practice.”

Ohring represents clients in complex commercial matters, including contractual disputes, business divorces, corporate governance matters, securities and class actions, shareholder derivative actions, bankruptcy litigation, government and regulatory proceedings and appeals.

His clients include businesses of all sizes, financial institutions, boards of directors, company management and individuals.

“The diversity of my practice has exposed me to different businesses, each with its particular challenges and novel legal issues,” shared Ohring. “These experiences have honed my ability to quickly analyze new cases and devise strategies that align with my clients’ goals. They also have fostered my dynamic, out-of-the-box approach to problem-solving in high-stakes, complex matters, which is Yankwitt LLP’s sweet spot.”

Ohring is admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey and before the United States Supreme Court; U.S. Court of Appeals, First and Second Circuits; and U.S. District Court, Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

He earned his J.D. with honors from Emory University School of Law, where he served as a Notes & Comments Editor of the Emory Law Journal.
