Yankwitt LLP Named Fourth Best Small Company to Work for in New York

Yankwitt LLP, Westchester County’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, has been ranked the fourth Best Small Company to Work for in New York by the Best Companies Group, announced on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at an awards ceremony in Albany, NY. This is the fourth consecutive year the firm has ranked in the top 10.

“We are thrilled and honored to be ranked the fourth best small company to work for in New York,” said Russell Yankwitt, founder and managing partner of Yankwitt LLP. “This award is a testament to our tireless efforts to make Yankwitt LLP a firm that challenges our attorneys with complex, interesting cases and our success in creating and nurturing a culture that prioritizes our team and their families.”

The ranking is based on results from a survey of employee satisfaction and engagement and an assessment of the firm’s workplace practices and policies.

“From my first day at Yankwitt LLP, I have experienced why the firm is a great place to work,” shared Partner Jason Swergold, who joined the firm in September from the U.S. Attorneys Office. “The level of practice and the types of cases we handle rival the largest New York City firms, and the camaraderie and culture are unparalleled. Living outside of the city, I am thrilled to have found this gem in Westchester County and look forward to what the future holds for me here.”

Yankwitt LLP focuses on complex commercial litigation and criminal defense and investigations, achieving exceptional results for companies and individuals in state and federal court throughout New York.

The Best Companies Group has also selected Yankwitt LLP as a top 10 Best Company to Work for in Westchester and a Best Law Firm to Work for, and in 2023, the Business Council of Westchester inducted Yankwitt LLP into its Hall of Fame for Small Business Success.

The firm also stands out as the sole Westchester-based law firm ranked in Chambers USA and Benchmark Litigation for commercial litigation, and Yankwitt LLP and its attorneys consistently receive accolades from industry authorities such as Best Law Firms, Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, and Martindale-Hubbell for their exceptional achievements and client service.
