Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP recently announced that its Partners, Pantea Yashar and Pooja Nair were selected as honorees in a Los Angeles Business Journal special supplement recognizing the city’s most influential women attorneys.
The “Women of Influence: Attorneys” list recognizes women lawyers “for exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large,” writes the publisher.
“We are grateful to have some of our top women attorneys recognized alongside such highly respected professionals,” says Co-Managing Partner Randall Leff. “In addition to Pantea and Pooja’s commitment to clients, they are also influential leaders within the Firm.”
Both Yashar and Nair are Harvard Law School alumni who have been leaders in the alumni community. Yashar currently serves as the Vice-President—At Large on the Executive Board of the Harvard Law School Association; this is a position she assumed following her two-year Presidency of the Association’s Los Angeles Chapter. Yashar is also an adjunct professor at Southwestern Law School. Nair is a director of the Harvard Club of Southern California.
