Jim Walden has been named in the top 40 of City & State New York’s 2022 “Law Power 100″ list.
City & State’s 2022 “Law Power 100” takes an in-depth look at the legal professionals who aren’t simply influential in their field, but powerful in New York’s governmental landscape. This year’s list includes district attorneys, federal prosecutors, white-collar defense attorneys, public interest lawyers, law school deans and bar association leaders who have shaped New York politics and government.
Since co-founding Walden Macht & Haran in 2015, Jim Walden has taken on cases of significance at the local, national and international levels. He has led a class-action lawsuit against the New York City Department of Education for failing to protect students from bullying and represented public housing tenants in a lawsuit against the New York City Housing Authority for poor housing conditions. Walden also represents Grigory Rodchenkov, a Russian whistleblower who helped inspire legislation in the United States criminalizing doping schemes in international sporting events.
