Julia Malkina Named a New York Law Journal 2020 Rising StarJuly 8, 2020
S&C litigation partner Julia Malkina, one of the Firm’s newest partners, has been named a 2020 Rising Star by the New York Law Journal. The Rising Stars awards recognize the region’s most promising lawyers 40 and younger.
Julia’s practice comprises trial court litigation, appellate court litigation and regulatory proceedings in a number of areas, including securities, commodities and criminal law. Her recent representations include precedent-setting cases charting the standard and evidence courts may consider for rebutting price impact in securities actions, delineating the limits of the Commodity Exchange Act’s extraterritorial reach, and testing important issues for litigating parallel federal and state securities actions.
The New York Law Journal will publish a profile on Julia leading up to the awards ceremony in October. NYLJ also recognized litigation partner Sharon Nelles as a 2020 Distinguished Leader, and the litigation practice was named the Litigation Department of the Year in Finance.
