Yankwitt LLP Celebrates Its 11th Anniversary in July 2020

Firm started with one attorney and now features one of the largest litigation teams in Westchester

Yankwitt LLP, an elite trial and litigation law firm based in White Plains, New York, celebrated its 11th anniversary on July 8, 2020. The firm, which started with one attorney, now features one of the largest litigation teams in Westchester County.

“I started Yankwitt LLP at my kitchen table,” shared Russell Yankwitt, founder and managing partner of the firm, “and today I am thrilled to say that we have a team of 17 attorneys and staff in two office locations – White Plains, NY, just steps away from the federal and state courthouses, and Atlantic City, NJ. I have built something of which I am extremely proud, which I could not have done without my dedicated team, our clients, former colleagues, adversaries, and the judiciary, and of course, my supportive family.”

Yankwitt LLP achieves exceptional results for companies and individuals in a full range of matters in state and federal courts throughout New York and New Jersey. The firm also handles complex matters in Westchester and the New York metropolitan area on behalf of national law firms and serves as trial counsel for Westchester law firms on their high-stakes cases. Clients include Fortune 500 companies like national hospitality company Landry’s Inc., pharmaceutical giant Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, and Heineken USA, as well as smaller regional and local companies and high-net-worth individuals.

Yankwitt LLP has grown into a powerhouse litigation firm in Westchester County by recruiting highly credentialed attorneys who graduated from top law schools, worked for leading national or New York City law firms and served as law clerks for federal judges. Additionally, four of the firm’s five New York partners were Assistant United States Attorneys in the Southern District of New York.

“Our recruiting strategy has served the firm and our clients well,” added Yankwitt. “Our attorneys are compelling, persuasive writers, creative problem solvers, and thorough investigators who consistently win cases. But above and beyond that, they are compassionate and empathetic individuals who are emotionally invested in each and every case and outcome.”
