The National Black Lawyers named associate Whitney J. Dumeng to its Top 40 Under 40 Black Lawyers in New York.

Dumeng's practice is focused on mergers and acquisitions, private equity and general corporate governance matters. She is an active member of Fried Frank's Women's Forum and advocates for women in the legal profession. Most recently, she spoke on a virtual panel entitled "Women in Corporate Law," sponsored by the Women's Law Forum and Rutgers Law School's Center for Corporate Law & Governance, to discuss creating space for women within corporate and business law.
