Delia Berrigan


Delia assists clients with labor and employment matters, especially when they intersect with intellectual property law.

Delia’s interest in law was first sparked by a publishing law course during her master’s program at New York University. Her interest continued to grow during her corporate career in the publishing industry, where she found herself drawn to the complexities of legal issues and the stories behind them. Her experience managing teams and negotiating publishing contracts has given her a unique perspective and a deep understanding of the importance of IP ownership in employment agreements.

Delia’s time in law school was marked by a strong focus on intellectual property and labor law, and she graduated with a special certification in IP law. She also found herself surprisingly drawn to oral arguments and litigation, leading her to participate in trial advocacy and deposition advocacy programs. Her independent study on labor law, where she examined current unionization strategies among large national corporations, further solidified her interest in the L&E field.

Now a fully qualified attorney, Delia provides representation during litigation as well as preventative counsel. She has a special interest in and passion for advising on diversity, equity, and inclusion principles, and she brings a unique blend of experiences from working in small businesses, franchises, and large corporations.

Known as a strategic problem-solver, Delia is adept at understanding the context of issues, synthesizing insights, and developing creative solutions to complex problems.

Delia is a diehard long-distance runner who’s completed the Marine Corps Marathon, the Chicago Marathon, the New York City Marathon, and more half marathons than she can remember. She enjoys indoor rock climbing and hiking, especially with her German Shorthaired Pointer; however, she’s also fond of simply curling up with a good book or audiobook or putting together a jigsaw puzzle.

With young twin daughters, Delia particularly loves traveling or simply spending time with her family. The family enjoys museums, movies, swimming, and attending her musician husband’s shows.
