“We are proud to have two Mintz members recognized by Crain’s among such an impressive slate of recipients,” said Bob Bodian, Managing Member of Mintz. “Not only have both Therese and Patti excelled in their respective practices, but they are widely recognized as firm leaders and strong supporters and mentors for women attorneys.”
Ms. Doherty is a trusted, go-to trial attorney with a proven track record for success. Clients call on her to defend high stakes civil litigations, regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings, and internal investigations. She has built a stellar reputation for expert knowledge of the financial services industry where she counsels and defends banks, broker-dealers, derivatives and futures brokers, swap dealers, and industry executives. Ms. Doherty is a regular speaker on industry panels focused upon derivatives and futures laws. She has been a leader and change maker with respect to women in the law and diversity in the workplace. Crain’s write-up underscores Ms. Doherty’s passionate support for NYC charitable organizations.
Ms. Kantor has spent more than 20 years entrenched in the heart of New York real estate. Among her clients, she counts major players in New York real estate including hotels, educational institutions, restaurants, investors and developers, brokers, corporate tenants, cooperative and condominium boards, and individuals. She advises them on commercial and residential real estate acquisitions and sales, retail and office leasing, financing, restructurings, workouts, and development. In any given year, Ms. Kantor will handle residential closings that cumulatively can top $60 million and, as Crain’s noted, last year she “handled three of the top 10 residential closings in the city, amounting to more than $200 million combined.” Additionally, Ms. Kantor has been a featured speaker for the New York City Bar Association and the Council of New York Cooperatives.
