Rachel focuses her practice on business litigation, split between complex commercial litigation and employment litigation. Her contributions extend to all phases of litigation, ranging from pre-suit claim assessment to motion practice and trial preparation.
Rachel has extensive experience performing legal research on complex and novel questions of law, and she often confers with counsel on overall case strategy based on her findings. She is particularly adept at bringing together the facts and circumstances of each case. In a recent complex commercial dispute, she extracted essential documents from voluminous document productions to elicit testimony from over a dozen fact witnesses disputing the opposing party’s claims. Rachel is also the firm’s lead associate in tracking a major retailer client’s national employment litigation.
Rachel is involved in pro bono work with the Adopt-A-Neighborhood program where she has represented a client in a breach of contract case and a neighborhood association in an abandoned housing case.
Having grown up on a beef cattle ranch in mid-Missouri, Rachel has an innate sense for business operations and the various legal issues that her commercial clients face on a daily basis. Additionally, her experience on the editorial board of the Journal of Corporation Law
helped her become more detail-oriented and well-versed in cutting-edge issues in corporate law.
