Charles Clayman to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award from The New York Law Journal

CRK&L founder and partner Charles E. Clayman has been selected to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York Law Journal.

For more than 50 years, Chuck has fought for justice in the courtrooms of New York City and is considered by many to be one of the elder statesmen of criminal defense lawyers. He was one of the very first attorneys to establish a boutique white collar criminal defense law firm directly after leaving a prosecutor’s office, a practice that has now become standard in the criminal defense bar.

Chuck is a pioneering attorney and steadfast advocate for justice, who combines his legal acumen with a deep philanthropic commitment and civic engagement, all of which makes him a deserving recipient of the New York Law Journal’s Lifetime Achievement honor.

The award will be formally presented at the New York Law Journal’s 2024 Legal Awards ceremony on September 5.
