Member and Co-Chair of Mintz’s Appellate Practice Group Emily Kanstroom Musgrave was profiled in Law.com’s “How I Made Partner” column, which features recent partners at Am Law 200 firms, sharing their unique journeys to becoming partner. Ms. Musgrave began her career at Mintz as a summer associate in 2009, and joined the firm as an associate in 2012. She was elevated to Member in May 2019.
In the profile, Ms. Musgrave addressed how her journey at Mintz speaks to the firm’s longstanding commitment to recruiting, retaining, and promoting women lawyers. “There has been little more important to my career than the mentors I have been lucky enough to have—especially women,” she said. “Many of the same women I met while interviewing at Mintz in 2009 have served as my mentors over the course of my career here, including Member and Chair of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee Sue Finegan, and Member and Chair of the firm’s Women’s Initiative, Meredith Leary.”
Ms. Musgrave focuses her practice on complex commercial litigation across a variety of areas, including contract disputes, securities litigation and government investigations. As Co-Chair of the firm’s Appellate Practice Group, she leads clients through the appellate process, designing a successful appellate strategy, drafting briefs, and preparing for oral argument. She also assists clients with amicus curiae submissions, including to the U.S. Supreme Court. Separately, she maintains a robust pro bono practice focused on providing legal assistance to asylum seekers, and survivors of domestic violence, among others.
