Jim Walden has been named in the top 30 of City & State New York’s 2021 “Law Power 100″ list.
City & State’s “Law Power 100” honorees are having an impact in New York’s political and government spheres. The list features prominent public officials, top legal advisers, and powerful prosecutors at the local, state, and federal level. It highlights trailblazing civil rights attorneys, public interest lawyers, advocates for poor and homeless people, and leaders of the #MeToo movement. It includes law school deans, bar association presidents, public defenders, and legally trained advocates and experts shaping key policies in New York.
He started with six lawyers and now he’s here – with 42 attorneys and a growing footprint. Jim Walden, who co-founded Walden Macht & Haran in 2015 after nearly a decade at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, recently added office space in New York and opened a Philadelphia office. After battling what he suspects was COVID-19 last spring, the former federal prosecutor jumped right back into his high-profile cases, including representing Christopher Krebs, a high-up cybersecurity official suing the Trump campaign for threatening statements.
