#30 Jim Walden and Milt Williams
Jim Walden has taken on the mob and landed on Vladimir Putin’s travel ban list for representing a whistleblower in the Russian Olympic doping scandal. His boutique law firm has been on the rise since he went his own way in 2015, expanding upward and outward by snagging new digs in New York City while moving into other metros like Philadelphia. Walden recently represented activists in a suit that got the Assembly redistricting map thrown out, forcing them to be redrawn for the 2024 election cycle. Another key partner at the firm is Milton Williams Jr., a former federal prosecutor who co-chaired Andrew Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption and last summer was nominated by New York City Mayor Eric Adams to chair the Conflicts of Interest Board.
