January 8, 2018 (NEW YORK) – Recognized for their distinguished careers and exceptional civic and philanthropic activities, partners Elise Bloom, Lauren Boglivi and Margaret Dale and have been named Notable Women in Law by Crain’s New York Business. This feature is a celebration of attorneys who have impacted New York City in major ways, honoring the achievements of the brightest and boldest legal minds.
With a career spanning more than 30 years, Elise Bloom is known for handling high-profile labor and employment cases on behalf of some of the nation’s most prominent companies. Over the course of her career, Elise has represented more companies in class actions challenging interns, trainees and volunteers than any firm in the country, and her precedent-setting argument on behalf of Fox Search-light Pictures helped determine the standard for evaluating the legality of unpaid internships. Additionally, Elise is a board member of the Women in Law Empowerment Forum, a platform that educates and provides networking opportunities for women in law.
Having spent her entire legal career at Proskauer, Lauren Boglivi has developed a successful transactional practice on behalf of companies, private equity sponsors and family offices. Her array of experience includes handling mergers and acquisitions, buyouts and related financings, joint ventures and growth and seed investment. Outside of her cutting-edge legal work, Lauren sits on the board of Women in Need, an organization that provides safe housing, critical services and ground-breaking programs to help homeless women and their children rebuild their lives.
With almost 30 years of experience, Margaret Dale is a first-chair litigator who handles complex business disputes for clients across a variety of industries. Among other things, Margaret represents clients in privacy and data breach litigation and regulatory investigations, and leads the Litigation Department’s data privacy and cyber-security practice group. She also currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Litigation Department. Margaret maintains an active pro bono practice focusing on issues affecting disadvantaged families, veterans and the arts. She also chairs the Board of Directors of the Center for Family Representation, a nonprofit dedicated to keeping NYC families together and eliminating or minimizing foster care, and is a member of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the New York City-based nonprofit Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
