Keila Ravelo, former partner at Hunton & Williams and Willkie Farr & Gallagher.

Keila Ravelo, a former Hunton & Williams and Willkie Farr & Gallagher partner who admitted to taking part in a $7.8 million fraud, has been disbarred in New York.

The New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, First Department, issued a ruling on June 28 ordering Ravelo’s disbarment and the removal of her name from the attorney listings in New York. The disciplinary sanction marks the latest fallout for Ravelo after her arrest in late 2014, when prosecutors said she cheated Hunton & Williams, Willkie and a former corporate client, Mastercard Inc., out of millions of dollars.
