As a partner in the Financial Advisory Services Practice, she provided expert testimony in commercial lawsuits, mediations and arbitrations, assisted Fortune 500 clients in recovery from natural and man-made disasters, and also served as a leader in the firm’s Women’s Initiative for the advancement and retention of high talent women.
