This is certainly not how I expected to be celebrating becoming a Skadden partner. That being said, we are adapting to the new normal. The traditional toasts have been replaced by online video chats and virtual congratulations, but it has certainly been a memorable experience.

— Tracey Chenoweth, a member of the banking practice group at Skadden, commenting on her ascension to the firm’s partnership during the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this month, the firm announced its new partnership class: Chenoweth, Dohyun Kim (M&A), and Jennifer Permesly (international arbitration) in New York; David Clark (M&A) and Marcie Lape (litigation) in Chicago; Paul Schockett (tax) and Julia York (antitrust/competition) in Washington, D.C.; Peter Mair (real estate) and Virginia Milstead (litigation) in Los Angeles; Shu Du (China corporate) in Hong Kong; Andrew Good (white collar crime/government enforcement) in London; Ken Kumayama (IP) in Palo Alto; and Jenness Parker (litigation) in Wilmington, Delaware. Congratulations!
