Danielle Corcione, the practice group leader for the Government & Corporate Investigations Group at Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi, has been elected to the Executive Committee of the firm, CSG announced this week.
At 41, Corcione is the youngest member ever to serve. Her two-year term of service began Jan. 1.
Jeffrey Chiesa, a member of the Executive Committee and named partner at the firm, applauded the announcement.
“Danielle has always been a fierce advocate for clients and a valued member of the firm’s leadership,” he said. “Now, she will put these skills to further use helping to chart the course for our future.”
Corcione has held a number of leadership roles at the firm. She is a member of the firm’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee and Women’s Initiative, and a former member of the firm’s Management Committee. She focuses her practice on white collar criminal defense, internal investigations and complex civil litigation.
Corcione has served in a variety of roles throughout her career, including as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey and as senior privacy counsel at an international cosmetics manufacturer.
“I’m thrilled to join the Executive Committee at this exciting time in the firm’s history,” she said. “As a firm that values its people and thrives on collaboration, I look forward to bringing a fresh perspective that underscores these values and supports the outstanding culture that makes CSG Law such an incredible place to work.”
Over the past five years, CSG Law has undergone a period of tremendous growth, with the firm topping $90 million and 175 lawyers at the end of 2021.
On Jan. 1, the firm also appointed its new managing member, Patricia Costello, who became the first woman to serve as the leading executive at the firm in its 50-year history.
“We expect Danielle will help to continue our trajectory with an eye toward building and creating opportunities for the next generation of leaders of the firm,” Costello said.
CSG has long been a place for female lawyers to shine. Including Costello, 10 of the firm’s 18 group leaders are women.
