Cadwalader Global Litigation partner Ellen Holloman and attorney Hyungjoo Han have authored two recent articles addressing current critical social justice issues, as part of the LexisNexis Practical Guidance® Practice Note series.
In “ESG, MeToo, and Black Lives Matter: Key Corporate Governance and Workplace Issues,” Holloman and Han provide guidance on the recent trends in the environmental, social and governance, or ESG, arena, and the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements influencing corporate governance and the workplace.
In “Sexual Harassment Workplace Investigations in the MeToo Era,” Holloman and Han provide an overview of the statutes and standards governing the various legal issues implicated by the MeToo (or #MeToo) movement and address best practices for conducting sexual harassment workplace investigations in the MeToo era.
Holloman focuses her practice on representing financial institutions, corporations and individuals in civil litigation and at trial, and in related regulatory enforcement proceedings and corporate internal investigations. She has extensive experience in securities litigation, including derivative and class action litigation, in contract and post-acquisition disputes, and in employment-related claims, including for enforcement of non-compete, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, and in #MeToo situations. She regularly advises companies, boards, special committees and investors in connection with corporate governance matters, including takeover defense and activist contests. Holloman also frequently handles litigation arising from bankruptcy and financial restructuring matters, and has represented secured and unsecured creditors and debtors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases and out-of-court restructurings across a wide range of industries, including financial services, energy, shipping, licensing and apparel.
Outside the firm, Holloman serves on the Mergers, Acquisition and Corporate Control Contest committee of the New York City Bar Association and the Civil Rights and Bankruptcy Litigation Committees of the Federal Bar Council. She serves on the Board of Trustees for the Center for Employment Opportunities, a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting men and women with criminal convictions with finding employment, and the Board of the New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, a non-profit law firm with the mission of advancing equality and civil rights through community lawyering and partnerships with the private bar.
Han currently serves as a law clerk to the Hon. John P. Cronan of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. She previously was a litigation associate in Cadwalader’s New York office, where she represented clients in complex commercial, securities, and criminal matters in state and federal courts, and served as chair of Cadwalader’s Asian Pacific American Attorney Resource Group.
