Husch Blackwell continues to expand its presence and capabilities in Nebraska. The firm added Marnie Jensen as a Partner in its Lincoln office. Jensen represents clients in commercial and Business Litigation and in Labor & Employment disputes.
“Marnie is a very talented attorney and we are excited about what she brings to the table, especially for our food and agribusiness clients,” explained Husch Blackwell Partner Gene Summerlin. “We are committed to meeting the legal needs of the agribusiness industry, and Marnie’s litigation and employment expertise helps us do that.” Before joining Husch Blackwell, Jensen served as the supervising pro se law clerk for the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, where she oversaw a staff of attorneys handling nearly 200 cases per year. Jensen assisted all six active and senior status district judges in handling labor and employment cases, prisoner civil rights actions and prisoner habeas corpus petitions.
A native of Cairo, Neb., Jensen previously spent six years in private practice in Lincoln and Chicago.

Prior to returning to Nebraska, Jensen practiced with Jenner & Block, a Chicago-based AmLaw 100 firm, and Tabet DiVito and Rothstein. She also served as a Fellow with First Defense Legal Aid in Chicago, providing legal assistance to the Chicago community in civil and criminal matters.
