Clients facing litigation rely on Emily’s eye for detail and her ability to navigate the intricate discovery process of complex commercial litigation.

Emily works with clients across a broad spectrum of industries; however, much of her current practice focuses on insurance regulatory law, insurance coverage, and insurance disputes, and she has assisted in representing insurance receivers in several states. She also handles various commercial litigation matters, including breach of contract and product liability claims, and she performs extensive eDiscovery work, handling client discovery management from preservation efforts to identification and collection of client data. She particularly enjoys challenging cases that require creativity, patience, and intricate strategies—the more complicated a problem, the more excited Emily is to help find a resolution.

Early in her legal career, Emily discovered a passion for discovery work and joined Husch Blackwell’s eDiscovery Solutions team. She knows cases are often won or lost in the discovery phase, and she knows how important well-managed discovery is to clients, both to help build their cases and to protect their information. Emily has taken a central role in eDiscovery work for major cases requiring extensive discovery, strategically steering the firm’s technological processes.

Known for her empathy and listening skills, Emily previously served as a social work case manager, guiding a caseload of more than a dozen families in identifying and connecting with needed resources and implementing medical treatment plans. Her prior career taught her how to listen and how to meet clients where they are: Emily knows how deeply stressful litigation is, and she is eager for clients to feel fully supported. She prioritizes keeping clients informed and ensuring that litigation strategies align with their business interests.
