December 21, 2020

Cadwalader Global Litigation partners Amanda Devereux and Ellen Holloman and Capital Markets partner Lisa Pauquette have been named to the 2021 Crain’s New York Business “Notable Women in Law” list.

This year’s honorees include 103 women attorneys who were “selected for [their] professional achievements and [their] pro bono work or involvement in industry and community organizations.”

In featuring Devereux, Crain’s wrote: “White-collar crime cases are complex, serious and high stakes, which is why defendants often make their way to Amanda Devereux for counsel,” citing her “years of experience representing senior executives in investigations brought by federal and state regulatory agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission.” The publication also highlights her representation of clients in complex commercial arbitration and litigation.

In describing Holloman’s work, Crain’s commented on her “broad expertise” in representing “financial institutions, corporations and individuals in civil litigation, at trial, in regulatory and enforcement proceedings and in corporate internal investigations.” The publication further acknowledged that she is “well versed in securities litigation,” advising “companies, boards and investors in takeover defense, activist contests and litigation arising from bankruptcy and financial restructuring.” 

Pauquette, Crain’s wrote, “is an expert in commercial mortgage loan securitization and a host of other mortgage banking and financing transactions,” who counts “several of the financial titans lining Wall Street” among her clients in their roles as underwriters, placement agents, issuers, servicers, mortgage loan sellers, and trustees of public and private securitization. The publication also commented on her work that was “vital to the resuscitation of the commercial mortgage-backed securities market” following the Global Financial Crisis of more than a decade ago.
