NEW YORK, June 15, 2011 - David Crichlow, a managing partner for the law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, walked into Central Park tonight shortly after 6 with a big smile on this face.
"This is like a half day for me and my colleagues," he said.
Like the majority of his Pillsbury colleagues, Crichlow, a commercial litigator, works very long hours. "There is no such thing as a normal day, but an average day ends about 8:30 and we often burn the midnight oil."
But billable time on this evening took a backseat to fitness and camaraderie as Crichlow led 34 Pillsbury colleagues to the starting line at the 35th annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge.
The Conservancy was the beneficiary of the event, a point that meant a great deal to Crichlow and Pillsbury.

"We're a firm that focuses daily on sustainability, so supporting an event that gives back to Central Park is very important to us," Crichlow said.

PILLSBURY LITIGATOR DAVID CRICHLOW NAMED 2011 PRIVATE PRACTITIONER OF THE YEAR Crichlow recognized by Metropolitan Black Bar Association of New York City
5/9/2011 New York-Pillsbury litigator David A. Crichlow, Managing Partner of the firm's New York office, has been selected as the Metropolitan Black Bar Association (MBBA)'s Private Practitioner of the Year. Crichlow will be honored at a black-tie dinner on May 19th at the MBBA's 27th Anniversary Awards Gala.
Each year, the MBBA honors in-house counsel, law firm counsel, judges and legal civil servants who have achieved significant success in the legal profession or made an outstanding contribution to the justice system or Bar. Crichlow is the only partner from a law firm to be recognized in 2011.
"We congratulate David on this very prestigious honor. This year's MBBA Awards Gala theme focuses on leadership, which requires not only decisiveness and a charismatic personality, unique gifts that David possesses, but a true commitment to a purpose larger than oneself. I see David perform that commitment every day both in how he works with clients to resolve complex disputes and all that he gives to our New York office and Pillsbury as a whole," said Pillsbury Firm Chair Jim Rishwain.
Crichlow advises clients on all aspects of trial and appellate practice in federal and state courts, and before administrative agencies and arbitration tribunals, related to complex commercial disputes. Experience includes contract, commercial fraud, securities, banking, and class-action litigation, as well as internal corporate investigations. Among his many achievements over the past 12 months, Crichlow co-lead the legal team representing the equity committee in the Tronox, Inc. bankruptcy matter.
For two years, Crichlow challenged various proposed plans of reorganization that provided no recovery to Tronox's pre-bankruptcy shareholders. Two weeks before the contested plan confirmation hearing, Crichlow's Tronox litigation team secured and spearheaded a 10-hour mediation session before Federal Bankruptcy Judge Drain, and secured a global settlement among all constituencies, which resulted in a meaningful recovery for the equity holders and a plan of reorganization that was ultimately confirmed by the Bankruptcy court. During the confirmation hearing, the Judge commended Pillsbury for their fight to protect shareholders' interests, and singled out Crichlow for his "statesman-like" efforts. Ultimately, the team realized roughly $30 million in value for Tronox shareholders, and helped the company save an additional $25 million by presenting a competing rights-offering backstop party. As a result of this success, the Pillsbury team was recently named a finalist for the 2011 Turnaround Atlas Awards, which. honors outstanding performances from the distressed M&A, restructuring, reorganizations and turnaround communities.
Crichlow is also currently defending a Boise corporation in a bet-the-company putative class action suit arising from a $47 million bond offering issued by a real estate development company that was allegedly engaged in a Ponzi scheme, and has represented clients engaged in controversies involving billions of dollars.
Crichlow received his B.A. from Hofstra University, his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Law in 1989, and joined Pillsbury as an associate the following year, eventually being elevated to partner in 2000. He has served as Managing Partner of the New York office since 2006. A proud husband and father of two, Crichlow is a member of the boards of The Legal Aid Society of New York, and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
"I greatly admire the work that MBBA does to help encourage African-Americans and other minority attorneys to assume leadership roles in improving and advancing the justice system and legal profession in New York and throughout the United States," said Crichlow.
