Isley Gostin has been named to The M&A Advisor's 8th Annual Emerging Leaders Awards. The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition and presentation of leading M&A, financing and turnaround professionals, created this recognition awards program to promote mentorship and professional development amongst the emerging leaders of the industry.
"The Annual Emerging Leaders Awards was born to recognize and celebrate the achievements of young M&A, financing and turnaround professionals who have reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community,” said David Fergusson, president and co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.
The 2017 award winners have been chosen from a pool of prominent nominees for their notable accomplishments in business and in service to the community.
"It is our belief that the Emerging Leader Award winners will continue to have a significant effect on the advancement of our industry. Through the support of business, philanthropic, academic and personal development experts, we are establishing a connected 'leadership community' with the mandate to empower these successful young professionals to improve the life experiences of others through their career," said Fergusson.
Since joining WilmerHale in 2011, Gostin has represented clients in all stages of complex litigation and bankruptcy proceedings, including discovery, motions practice, mediation, trail and appeals. She has also represented clients in a wide-range of pro bono matters, including work for a criminal defendant in seeking post-conviction relief, representing judgment creditors in bankruptcy proceedings, advising the board of directors of a nonprofit organization in financial distress on governance issues, and representing amici in the Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals on constitutional and bankruptcy law issues.
On Tuesday, September 19th, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to introduce the Emerging Leaders Award winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements.
