Attorney Profile

An associate at Robins Kaplan LLP, Nahid Shaikh has a varied practice that includes the representation of victims of childhood sexual abuse in litigation against the perpetrators and the organizations that turned a blind eye to it. Located in the firm's offices in New York City, she also has experience in antitrust litigation, as well as asbestos and other personal injury and wrongful death litigation, and her background has included providing advice and counsel to financial advisers and fund managers. Representing clients throughout New York and New Jersey, Ms. Shaikh is admitted to practice in both states as well as before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

Ms. Shaikh's childhood abuse clients have benefited greatly from the passage in 2019 of a New York state law that changed the statute of limitations for bringing these types of cases. New Jersey has passed a similar law as well. Ms. Shaikh advises these clients with respect to their legal options and gives them recommendations as to how to proceed. In the antitrust area, her workload has included a class action brought against the manufacturer of popular single-serve coffee makers and a case involving local television advertisers.

As an undergraduate, Ms. Shaikh attended the University of Miami, where she majored in economics and received a Bachelor of Science in 2010. She then pursued her legal education at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, part of Yeshiva University, and she served on the Cardozo Law Review and was a legal intern at a New Jersey firm before being awarded her Juris Doctor magna cum laude and being inducted into the Order of the Coif in 2014.
