Katherine Goldstein Profiled for GIR Women in Investigations Recognition

(New York) – Akin Gump white collar defense and government investigations partner Katherine Goldstein has been selected for recognition by Global Investigations Review for its Women in Investigations issue.

Women in Investigations spotlights “remarkable women in the profession” who are “achieving great things in a competitive and notoriously tough area of law.”

Among the highlights from her published profile:

  • “The highlight of my career was serving as the chief of the securities fraud unit in the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York from 2014 to 2017. I worked with an extraordinarily talented group of prosecutors and law enforcement partners, and we investigated and brought important cases that served to protect the markets and investors. I’m incredibly proud of the work we did together.”
  • “I think the white-collar bar is becoming more diverse and welcoming. But there have certainly been moments in my career when I was the only woman in the meeting, the courtroom or the boardroom. In those circumstances, you have to learn to have confidence and trust in your own voice.”
  • “The best problem-solving comes from collaboration and keeping an open mind. Sometimes the idea that seems like it comes out of left field turns out to be the best idea.”

Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
