The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) has named New York-based Partner Tiffany J. Smith as one of the Top 20 Rising Stars of 2020. According to the MCCA, those featured in the annual list are outstanding attorneys whose accomplishments and dedication to the legal profession and to their community place them among those “attorneys to watch.”
“The MCCA Rising Stars may be of different ages and at varying stages in their careers but they all possess the love of law, ambition, and pursuit of excellence, while possessing a compassion for those in need and a strong desire to give back to others.”
Smith was recognized for her work at the firm, which, among other things, focuses on advising clients on the application of the federal securities laws to new technologies. With over a decade of experience representing some of the largest securities firms on the most complicated issues, she has cemented her role as a highly skilled securities regulatory attorney. Smith was also recognized for her endless dedication to her community. She is active in various diversity-related organizations and initiatives throughout New York and beyond, often mentoring and providing advice to law students and junior attorneys about excelling in the practice of law, or in careers with a focus in the securities and technology industries.
The 2020 MCCA Rising Stars will be honored at the Creating Pathways to Diversity Virtual Conference on October 27.
