Profiles in Diversity Journal Names Helene Hechtkopf and Ilene Jaroslaw to 2018 Women Worth Watching List
Hoguet Newman Regal & Kenney, LLP announced today that partners Helene Hechtkopf and Ilene Jaroslaw have been named to Profiles in Diversity Journal’s 2018 Women Worth Watching list. The list is dedicated to celebrating women of purpose and their achievements in and outside of the workplace.
Helene has represented clients in a wide range of litigation, including commercial, employment, appellate, and white collar criminal matters. She also has significant experience representing railroads and has developed a niche practice doing so; for example, she has represented the Metropolitan Transit Authority in several matters, including cases filed under the Federal Employers Liability Act. Her work representing railroads is only one part of a larger practice representing public entities. In one current case, Helene represents a doctor employed by the Office of Mental Health in litigation involving a prison death. She actively contributes to the bar as a member of the Executive Committee of the New York Bar Association’s Commercial and Federal litigation section, a leader of a CLE on commercial litigation for non-litigators, and the organizer of a forthcoming series of webinars on trial practice in the Commercial Division.
Ilene brings more than two decades of experience as a federal prosecutor and civil rights litigator to her representation of corporations and individual executives in civil and criminal litigation. A member of HNRK’s White Collar Defense & Government Investigations practice, she has particularly deep experience assisting clients with internal investigations, white-collar criminal defense, and high-value commercial and securities litigation. She was awarded both the Charles E. Rose Award for Outstanding Service by the Eastern District Association, and the Director’s Award for Superior Performance as an AUSA from the U.S. Department of Justice. Ilene has served as a panelist on cross-border prosecutions at the ABA’s White Collar Crime Institute, and was recently named to Law360’s Editorial Advisory Board for White Collar Crime.
