Women Owned Business
Certified as a Woman Owned Business by Women’s Business Enterprise National Council
New York, NY – Yorkson Legal, a temporary legal staffing firm serving the tri-state area, has been certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as an official Woman’s Business Enterprise or a women owned business. This certification, one of the most highly respected and widely-recognized in the nation, is accepted by thousands of corporations in the United States, including a large number of federal and government agencies.
Yorkson Legal was established in 2003 by Gail Reichwald. Reichwald is a Chartered Financial Analyst with more than a decade of experience at a number of firms ranging from small-capital organizations to Fortune 500 companies. Before becoming involved in her current company, Reichwald served as a compliance specialist at Morgan Stanley, where she managed all aspects of financial reporting. She holds an MBA in Finance and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting.
“We are proud to be recognized by the WBENC as a business that is owned, managed, and controlled by a woman,” said Yorkson Legal managing director, Loren Mustion. “This certification will not only increase our national exposure as a woman-owned business, but it will hopefully foster future opportunities with other companies with similar philosophies.”
Mustion continued, “Diversity of all types is extremely important to us, both as a woman-owned company and as a company that serves one of the most diverse urban centers in the world. We believe that our commitment to diversity is an enormous strength, and that is certainly reflected in our staff.”
The application process to become certified through WBENC is historically rigorous and stringent. “We’ve worked hard on our application,” Reichwald said. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the results and with the opportunities that now lie ahead.”
