New York Law Journal Names Kelly Newsome and Danny Rubens 2022 Rising Stars


Congratulations to associate Kelly Newsome and partner Danny Rubens on being selected New York Law Journal Rising Stars for 2022. Orrick is the only firm with two lawyers on the list.

Kelly is a next generation star in New York’s white collar bar, advising major companies in complex FCPA investigations and other regulatory matters. She also has been a leader in promoting diversity in the legal industry, including serving in key roles in advancing D&I initiatives at Orrick. The National Bar Association earlier this year named Kelly to its Top 40 under 40 – Nation’s Best Advocates.

Danny, a member of our Supreme Court and Appellate practice, has played key roles in major appellate matters for financial services industry clients, including being on a team earlier this year recognized by American Lawyer as Litigators of the Week for securing a significant win for Credit Suisse. He also has authored influential amicus briefs in U.S. Supreme Court cases advocating for legal protections for the LGBTQ community, and was previously recognized as a “Best LGBTQ+ Lawyer Under 40” by the National LGBTQ Bar Association.
