Ellen Holloman Named to Crain’s ‘Notable Women in Law’ List

January 04, 2019

Cadwalader Global Litigation partner Ellen Holloman has been named to the Crain’s “Notable Women in Law 2019 – New York” list.

This year’s list recognizes 114 women who “juggle distinguished careers, family, exceptional civic activities—and are steely warriors against gender discrimination.” They were selected based on submitted nomination materials.

In selecting Holloman, Crain’s wrote: “Ellen Holloman is a trusted representative of financial institutions, corporations and individuals in civil litigation, regulatory enforcement proceedings and corporate internal investigations. She also regularly advises companies, boards and investors in connection with corporate governance matters. Outside of the firm, Holloman serves on the board of the Center for Employment Opportunities, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting men and women with criminal convictions with finding employment. Because of her commitment to pro bono engagements, Holloman was honored with the Thurgood Marshall Award by The New York City Bar Association in recognition of her service to post-conviction inmates facing a capital punishment sentence.”

Holloman has represented clients as plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state courts and in arbitrations around the world. She has first and second chair trial experience, has argued motions in federal and state court, and participated in over one hundred depositions. She also frequently handles litigation arising from bankruptcy and restructuring matters, and recently served as lead litigation counsel on behalf of a debtor licensing company in a three week trial that resulted in findings of fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, aiding and abetting and unjust enrichment against the former principal of the debtor and a publicly-held company.

Holloman has extensive experience with cross border civil litigation and international law enforcement, including obtaining overseas discovery under the Hague Convention and investigations under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. She also has experience with Constitutional law matters, particularly First and Eighth Amendment jurisprudence.

In addition to her civil litigation experience, Holloman also has significant experience with white-collar criminal defense matters, and has represented clients responding to regulatory inquiries, requests and enforcement proceedings initiated by the U.S. Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission, Federal Reserve, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, National Association of Securities Dealers, FINRA, Internal Revenue Service, the Office of the New York State Attorney General, New York Stock Exchange, European Commission, and the UK Serious Frauds Office, among others.
