Boston Named to City & State New York's 2021 'Law Power 100' List
Product Liability Litigation partner Sheila S. Boston was named to City & State New York's "Law Power 100," an annual list of the "leading legal professionals in New York politics and government." This year, the list included prominent public officials, top legal advisers and powerful prosecutors at the local, state and federal level.
Boston was included in the list after becoming the first woman of color installed as president of the 150-year-old New York City Bar Association last year. Her presidency has been marked by her focus on COVID-19 Recovery Projects; Mental Health & Wellness; Access to Justice; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; Criminal Justice Reform; and Protection of the Rule of Law. Given her legacy of achievements and her presidential initiatives, City & State New York commended Boston as a "longtime advocate for diversity and inclusion in the legal world."
