Practice Profile: Shivani Poddar is an experienced litigator, who focuses her practice on a broad range of commercial, securities, real estate, bankruptcy and employment-related disputes in federal, state and bankruptcy courts and arbitration. Shivani frequently represents financial institutions, investors, commercial real estate firms, and other domestic and international entities, in all phases of litigation.

Leadership, Pro Bono and Civic Work: In 2011, Shivani received the New York Legal Services Pro Bono Recognition Award for her successful representation of numerous unemployed individuals before the New York State Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board.  In 2015-2016, Shivani represented the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project in filing an amici curiae brief with the New York Court of Appeals, urging the Court to curtail the lower courts’ practice of dispensing with an evidentiary hearing in child custody cases. The Court agreed, and its ruling changed the legal standard by which child custody cases are handled in New York.  In 2018, Shivani represented a Syrian refugee, by submitting a brief to the United Nations, arguing that refugee status and resettlement was warranted due to religious persecution in Iraq.
