Lowenstein Sandler is proud to announce that Jennifer Fiorica Delgado, partner in the firm’s Capital Markets Litigation group, has been named to Crain’s distinguished roster of 2020 Notable Women in Law – New York. This is the second consecutive year in which she has been so recognized.
Crain’s annual list celebrates an exceptional pool of talented female attorneys who have impacted New York City in major ways through professional, civic, and philanthropic achievements. Nominees are assessed for their exceptional achievements during the year, activity with nonprofit or community groups or on behalf of underrepresented individuals or communities, and demonstrated leadership ability.
Delgado has extensive experience with a wide range of capital markets disputes, including structured finance and securities litigation, M&A disputes, and bankruptcy-related litigation, primarily representing the “buy-side,” including U.S.-based and global asset managers, hedge funds, and institutional investors. She also maintains a robust business litigation, investigations, and counseling practice in which she services a diverse client base. In addition, Delgado has an exemplary track record advocating for her clients on high-stakes issues, ranging from advocacy with State Attorneys General and other regulators on data security and civil rights matters, to internal investigations concerning alleged “Me Too” violations.
Committed to pro bono work throughout her career, Delgado was recognized in 2015 as one of the Top 25 Pro Bono Advocates by Legal Services of New York City. Currently, she serves as plaintiffs’ pro bono counsel in Doe v. Esper, a case challenging the constitutionality of the Pentagon’s transgender service policy. She also co-heads the firm’s Recruiting Committee, is an active member of the firm’s Women’s Initiative and Diversity Committee, and mentors young lawyers at the firm.
The Crain’s accolade is a reflection of not only Delgado’s achievements but the firm’s commitment to providing opportunities and advancement for women. Through its focused employee resource groups, equitable benefits, and dedicated mentorship and sponsorship, the firm demonstrates its sustained investment in a diverse and inclusive workplace where all employees can build and pursue productive careers.
Lowenstein’s diversity and inclusion achievements have been recognized by a perfect (100 percent) score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index; the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice's Corporate Leadership Award; and inclusion on numerous lists such as Crain's Best Places to Work in New York City (two years in a row), NJBIZ’s Best Places to Work in New Jersey (eight consecutive years), Working Mother’s 60 Best Law Firms for Women (seven times), and WomenInc. magazine’s Top 100 Law Firms for Women.
