Driven and always prepared, Annie thrives on new challenges and brings an eye for precision and efficiency to her work. Combined with her passion for overcoming obstacles, Annie loves to conquer high-stakes employment challenges.
As a litigator, Annie helps employers navigate single plaintiff, multi-plaintiff and class action lawsuits under state and federal laws. She also works with companies on state agency tax audits. Since an adverse ruling can threaten the very core of a company’s business model, companies need attorneys like Annie to guide them through the complex audit and assessment process.
Having amassed significant courtroom experience, she knows how to deliver the best results for her client – whether that means resolving a matter quietly, or winning decisively at trial. For example, Annie was a key member of the team which secured a complete defense verdict for a Fortune 500 retail employer in a religious discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination case. As the only associate on the trial team, Annie assisted with witness preparation, argued four of the pre-trial discovery motions and a motion in limine. Moreover, to help ease the stress of litigation for her clients, Annie maintains the highest service standards.
Annie also serves on the planning committee for Orrick’s Women in Employment Law (WE) Initiative. She spearheads networking events to foster connections between female leaders in the human resources, employment and legal professions.
