New York partners Arlene Chow, Betty Moy Huber, and Jamie Wine have been named to the Crain’s New York Business 2023 Notable Women in Law list. Crain’s says the annual list “recognizes leading female attorneys in New York who are furthering justice and keeping the cogs of commerce spinning.” Honorees are those with distinguished careers who demonstrate exemplary leadership skills and a deep commitment to civic, philanthropic, and mentoring activities.
- Arlene Chow is Global Vice Chair of Latham’s Healthcare & Life Sciences Industry Group and a seasoned first-chair trial lawyer. She represents leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies on their highest-stakes intellectual property matters. Chow has handled matters for some of the most recognizable names in the healthcare and life sciences industry, including representing Merck against its largest competitors in patent and trade secret litigations and protecting Biogen’s, Amgen’s, and Regeneron’s branded drugs from generic entry. She also serves as the Co-Chair of Latham’s Women Enriching Business (WEB) Committee in the New York office, leading efforts to amplify talent, diversify teams, and strengthen client relationships between women lawyers and current and potential clients.
- Betty Moy Huber is a Corporate Partner and Global Co-Chair of Latham’s Environmental, Social & Governance Practice. She advises public and private companies, funds, and their boards on the full range of ESG-related corporate governance matters, establishing herself as the go-to ESG lawyer for some of the most recognizable brands in the world. She has created Sustainability-linked Credit products, developed new ESG programming, and has advised corporations and financial institutions on their ESG strategies. In addition to being the Community Engagement and Charitable Contributions co-chair for Latham’s New York office, Huber has worked extensively to promote diversity, equity and inclusion, through her participation in affinity groups for Asian & Middle Eastern Lawyers, First Generation Professions, and Parents, as well as developing the first diversity & inclusion program for various non-profit organizations. She mentors various associates from diverse backgrounds and supervised another team of diverse associates through Latham’s pro bono work with the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund. She also serves on the board of advisors for NYU School of Law’s Institute for Corporate Governance & Finance and on a board committee for a New York City special needs school. Huber frequently speaks and writes for the American Law Institute, American Bar Association, Aspen Institute’s Business & Society Program, New York State and City Bar, Practising Law Institute, and Society for Corporate Governance.
- Jamie Wine is an accomplished trial lawyer and Fellow in the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers who has tried and arbitrated a wide variety of complex commercial cases. Recently, she scored a precedent-setting victory for the U.S. Soccer Federation (after being retained to replace prior counsel) in the high-profile equal pay litigation with the U.S. Women’s Senior National Team (WNT). The ultimate settlement was part of a strategy U.S. Soccer and Latham executed to rebuild U.S. Soccer’s relationship with the WNT, ensure equal pay going forward, and promote women’s soccer. Additional recent victories include securing a US$125 million arbitration award for a public pharmaceutical company, and winning dismissals of securities class actions in California and Virginia federal courts against DXC Technology alleging more than US$1 billion in damages. Outside of her busy trial practice, Wine is deeply committed to pro bono work, and recently led an all-women team that achieved clemency for a domestic abuse survivor incarcerated for killing her abuser, against whom she had two orders of protection. Wine also is a longstanding Board member of the Legal Aid Society.
