For the second year in a row, Crain’s New York Business has recognized Jennifer Selendy among its list of “Notable Women in Law.”
Selendy, a seasoned trial and appellate lawyer, is a founding and co-managing partner of New York-based Selendy & Gay. Since opening its doors in 2018, the firm has successfully represented Fortune 500 clients, among them McKinsey & Company, and high-profile individuals in cutting-edge litigation, while boasting a majority-female ownership and a commitment to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion.
Selendy is widely recognized for her legal acumen in high-stakes disputes. Per Crain’s, “she is just as impressive out of the courtroom. Selendy recently partnered with a small coalition of lawyers, journalists and activists that successfully evacuated a group of 250 at-risk schoolgirls, family members and faculty from Kabul to Canada following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.” The coalition is now working to evacuate an additional 250 at-risk girls and their families.
