Crain’s New York Power Couples – Denny Chin & Kathy Chin
Please join us in congratulating Judge Denny Chin, (Court of Appeals Judge for the Second Circuit) and Kathy Hirata Chin (Partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft), named one of Crain’s New York Power Couples. This list, linked above, asks the important question, “What makes a power couple in New York business?”
According to Crain, this list "weighed revenue and budget figures, charitable giving and net worth. And we’ve considered those sums against the intangible impact their work and extracurricular lives have on the businesses—for profit and not—that shape the character of the city.”
We could not agree more that Judge Chin and Kathy exemplify power, grace, and achievement. AABANY is proud to have them lead our trial reenactments and act as role models to us all. They are individually the definition of the highest levels of the legal profession and together, they are the definition of relationship goals.
