Marcia Goldstein has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York Law Journal, as part of the publication’s annual Professional Excellence Awards. She is one of just seven individuals selected for this honor, which recognizes those who have made an impact on the legal community and the practice of law over an entire career.
Ms. Goldstein, currently a member of the Firm’s Management Committee, previously chaired Weil’s Business Finance & Restructuring Department for about 13 years, spanning the financial crisis and its long aftermath. A lifelong New Yorker, she has spent her entire career at Weil, playing a leading role in some of the most historic and highest-profile crises, controversies and turnaround stories of the last four decades, including most recently leading the Weil team representing Takata in its chapter 11 proceeding. Throughout this time, she has advocated for, mentored and inspired other women, particularly in the restructuring field. She has always made time for service to the New York community, through her work on various non-profit leadership committees and boards. She has also lectured at Yale, Harvard, Columbia, NYU and Cornell Law Schools.
Ms. Goldstein, along with the other winners, will be profiled in the New York Law Journal’s upcoming Professional Excellence magazine and honored at the New York Legal Awards on October 10.
