Crain’s New York Business Names Michelle Ann Gitlitz and Ilana Lubin to "Notable Women in Law" List

New York – December 21, 2020: Crain’s New York Business named Crowell & Moring partners Michelle Ann Gitlitz and Ilana Lubin to its annual list of “Notable Women in Law.” The list recognizes lawyers for their “professional achievements and pro bono work or involvement in industry and community organizations.”

“These impressive attorneys were chosen not only for their skills and accomplishments, but also for their efforts to shore up the edifice of justice. In the public and private sectors, domestically and abroad, and across industries and sectors, these lawyers—litigators, dealmakers, prosecutors, defenders and investigators—work to uphold the law as Thomas Hobbes described it: ‘the public conscience,’” Crain’s New York Business wrote in announcing the list.

Gitlitz is the Global Head of the firm’s Blockchain and Digital Assets practice, and a partner in the White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement and Corporate groups. Her practice focuses on the legal and regulatory issues facing both emerging and established companies that invest in and incorporate blockchain technology and digital assets into their businesses. Gitlitz also founded and serves as president and director of Diversity in Blockchain, Inc., a nonprofit organization committed to creating equal, open, and inclusive opportunities in the blockchain industry.

Lubin is a member of the firm's Corporate and Advertising & Media groups, advising companies across a wide range of industries on domestic and cross-border M&A and joint venture transactions. In addition, as a member of the firm’s Retail & Consumer Products Group steering committee, she also advises clients on other strategic corporate and commercial matters, including intellectual property license agreements, international distribution and supply agreements, and marketing and advertising agreements.

Crain’s New York Business selected the lawyers to include in the list by consulting “with trusted sources in the legal industry and in the general New York business world.” To see the full list, please visit here.
