News Releases

National law firm Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that partners Hilary Bricken, Julie Maurer, Nithya Nagarajan, and Michael Raupp will serve on the Cannabis, Transportation, International Trade, and Appellate Editorial Advisory Boards, respectively, in 2024 for Law360.

Each editorial board comprises approximately 10 subject-matter experts who provide feedback on Law360’s coverage and insight on how best to cover each respective practice area. This year marks the second consecutive year for Nagarajan on the International Trade board, while this is the first year for Bricken, Maurer, and Raupp on their respective boards.

Bricken is a member of the firm’s Cannabis team and focuses her practice on mergers, acquisitions, and other transactions, as well as serving as first point of outside counsel for certain clients. She is based in the firm’s Los Angeles office.

Based in Phoenix, Maurer is a member of the firm’s Transportation industry team where she leads a supply chain and logistics team that provides clients a complete suite of services, including serving as national counsel on corporate and regulatory matters and defending clients in jurisdictions throughout the country in the areas of transportation, specifically cargo, and complex commercial litigation.

Washington, DC-based Nagarajan focuses her practice on trade-remedy strategy and antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings. Her previous roles at the Department of Commerce, the Department of Justice and the U.S. Court of International Trade give Nagarajan an insider’s perspective as she counsels clients on administrative and regulatory acts before Commerce, the International Trade Commission and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). She has advised foreign manufacturers in India, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea and Vietnam in handling trade and supply chain issues associated with exports to the United States.

Based in Kansas City and a member of the firm’s Education industry team, Raupp represents clients in appellate proceedings, complex litigation, and high-stakes regulatory disputes. He regularly advises organizations on constitutional, statutory, and procedural issues, advocating for his clients in federal and state appellate courts around the country. Raupp has represented businesses and educational institutions in a wide variety of issues on appeal, including the First Amendment, Title IX of the Higher Education Act, the Federal Arbitration Act, due process protections, as well as sovereign and qualified immunity. He has worked with both public and private institutions to achieve numerous successful resolutions.
