December 04, 2017

In 2017, the women of Fenwick & West’s tax team were recognized as global, influential forces in tax law.

Partners Jennifer Fuller and Larissa Neumann and associates Julia Ushakova-Stein and Ora Grinberg were named among the best in their fields by their peers, clients and tax scholars alike.

“This has been an incredible year for the tax team, and I am excited to see so many of our top lawyers gaining recognition. Their efforts are absolutely core to our success,” Fenwick tax chair Adam Halpern said. “Their innovative counsel on multibillion-dollar deals and high-profile litigation wins is impressive, not to mention their excellent client service. We’re lucky to have these amazing women on our team.”

At Euromoney’s Women in Business Law Awards, Neumann was named the top woman lawyer for transfer pricing matters worldwide. She was also honored by Silicon Valley Business Journal on its list of Women of Influence, which honors businesswomen having a major impact. In 2017, Neumann was also included in the following:
