New York partner named to Crain's 2022 ‘Notable Women in Law’

United States Press release - People December 2021

New York antitrust partner Robin Adelstein has been named to the 2022 “Notable Women in Law” list by Crain’s New York Business.

Adelstein, who serves as Norton Rose Fulbright’s global and US head of antitrust and competition, has been instrumental in working with a large team of lawyers to ensure the firm’s clients are kept well-informed of rapidly evolving and complex laws.

She focuses her practice on litigating complex antitrust and commercial cases and advising companies on cutting-edge antitrust issues. She is a staunch, formidable advocate for clients, dispensing invaluable legal insights.

This is Adelstein’s second time on Crain’s “Notable Women in Law” list, having received the honor previously in 2019. 

The women featured in this year’s list were selected by a team of Crain’s New York Business editors based on their career accomplishments, track record of success in the field, contributions to their community and mentorship of others, as outlined in a detailed nomination form. They have set legal precedents, relentlessly pursued justice and won significant cases for their clients—all while mentoring the next wave of women in law and finding ways to give back.

In their release, Crane’s called this list of women “exemplary in every way.”

“These impressive attorneys were chosen not only for their skills and accomplishments in the courtroom but for their leadership outside of it,” the editors wrote. “In addition to their long hours representing everyone from executives at Fortune 500 companies to immigrants seeking asylum, our honorees this year shored up morale among their colleagues during the pandemic and found ways to keep business going in the face of turmoil.”

Crane’s noted the extraordinary pressures faced by this year’s honorees.

To find these honorees, Crain’s consulted with trusted sources in the legal industry and in the general New York business world. The many nominations submitted by organizations and individuals in the metropolitan area were carefully vetted. Each notable lawyer was selected for her outstanding professional achievements and her pro bono work or involvement with industry and community organizations.
