Firm Name: Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP Firm Leader: Daniel Goldberg, Founding Partner Head Count: 80 Locations: New York Practice Areas: General commercial litigation, with a focus on financial markets litigation, antitrust and cross-border/transnational work.
Governance structure and compensation model: As a practical matter, the governance process is highly collaborative. Partners outside the management committee (which is comprised of our name partners) offer input on virtually all issues and take ownership of specific matters such as recruiting. Associates and staff play a role in governance through committee assignments on, for instance, the firm’s diversity & inclusion committee, as well as through frequent informal consultation. Holwell Shuster & Goldberg uses a lock-step compensation model for both partners and associates, and associates receive top-of-the-market pay.
