The award recognizes attorneys who have made a remarkable difference in the legal profession while demonstrating clear leadership skills leading to positive outcomes. As a Distinguished Leader honoree, Greg was recently interviewed by the New York Law Journal regarding his achievements and to share any insights he may have for other lawyers.
When it comes to achievements, Greg noted that his proudest accomplishments include being appointed the managing partner of the firm’s New York office, being recognized by Crain’s New York Business as a Notable LGBTQIA+ Leader, and securing a positive decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in a litigation that has been ongoing for more than eight years.
When asked how he thinks lawyers should adapt for the future, Greg replied that law firms, clients, and courts should be more flexible, as attorneys have demonstrated throughout the pandemic that they can meet demands both professionally and personally under the highest standards. As for advice, Greg shared that those considering a career in law should be true to themselves and go for opportunities that suit them while finding pro bono projects in areas that match their passion.
