Chambers USA Honors Yankwitt LLP and Russell Yankwitt Again

White Plains, NY—Yankwitt LLP, Westchester’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, has once again been selected for the Chambers USA ranking of top commercial litigation firms in the country. Yankwitt LLP is the only Westchester-based law firm ranked in Chambers’ commercial litigation tables. This is the third year the firm has participated and been ranked in the publication.

Russell Yankwitt, the firm’s founder and managing partner, was also selected again this year in the Litigation: General Commercial category. “We are thrilled and honored to be selected for inclusion in such a well-respected resource,” said Yankwitt. “And being the only Westchester-based law firm in the publication speaks to the quality of our work and reputation in the legal community.”

The rigorous submission process includes examples of work-product that demonstrate the firm’s excellence and a list of references who provide feedback on their law firm and its attorneys. Some of the feedback published in Chambers over the past several years include:

  • “[Russell] really understands the nuances and quality of the work. He’s a first-rate writer who is able to provide high-quality advice.”
  • “When things require attending to, they make it a priority. I never feel a matter is not progressing.”
  • “Russell attends to each case with an insightful and reasoned approach, combining a knowledge of the case law with the realities of business. He is a terrific counselor who truly listens.”
  • “Russell is hard-working and responsive.”

Yankwitt LLP has earned a reputation for being a powerhouse litigation firm in Westchester County. With one of the largest litigation teams in the county, Yankwitt LLP represents businesses and high-net-worth individuals in disputes across a broad range of matters. The firm routinely handles complex cases in Westchester on behalf of national law firms and often serves as trial counsel for local law firms on their high-stakes cases.

Yankwitt attributes much of the firm’s success to the attorneys he recruits. “We have specific criteria for the attorneys we hire,” said Yankwitt. “Ideally, they should have had experience working for a national or international law firm and worked as a federal prosecutor or a federal law clerk or both. We have found this background to produce the best creative litigators and persuasive, concise legal writers.”

Other accolades the firm has earned over the past year include inclusion in Benchmark Litigation, Super Lawyers, and Best Lawyers. The firm was also selected for the Business Council of Westchester’s Hall of Fame, Small Business Success award, one of the most coveted honors bestowed on a Westchester County business.
