Vincent T. Chang

Vincent Chang is a Partner in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group of Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch LLP’s New York office. From 1989-2002, Vince was an associate and then counsel at Davis Polk & Wardwell. Vince is a past President of the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) and currently serves on the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of the New York County Lawyers’ Association (NYCLA) as well as the Board of Directors of their Foundation. Vince also serves on the Boards of Directors of Legal Services NYC, the Network of Bar Leaders and the Asian American Law Fund of New York and is a Co-Chair of the Litigation Committee of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). Vince graduated from Harvard College, magna cum laude, and Harvard Law School, cum laude.

Over the course of his career, Vince has been an active participant in an impressive array of bar association activities, dedicated to a wide range of issues. Working to enhance diversity through bar association work, Vince advocates, persuades and leads by example. As President of the AABANY in 2007, Vince succeeded in creating a lasting atmosphere of consensus and in strengthening the ties among the minority bar associations as well as the larger bar associations. During his term and thereafter, Vince has worked on a number of collaborative projects encompassing multiple bar associations, including CLE programs, amicus briefs, and public fora. Vince also strives to increase the number of younger attorneys active in bar associations and stresses the need for increased involvement of Asian Pacific American (APA) senior attorneys in programs and presentations aimed at junior attorneys.

Vince is a tireless advocate for diversity in all aspects of his career. Within his firm Vince has played a pivotal role in recruiting minority hires and acting as an informal mentor to enhance their professional development. Approximately 15% of the firm’s attorneys are representative of minority groups, including two of the firm’s eleven partners. In addition, Vince has fostered diversity by working with at least one minority attorney on most of his cases and by attempting to increase the firm’s use of minority vendors. The firm has dedicated a sizable court-reporting budget in a large case to an Indian American owned court reporting service.
