Morrison & Foerster’s diverse, LGBTQ+, and women lawyers hold key leadership positions throughout the firm. They serve on committees that define the firm’s strategy, run our global offices, and lead our best-in-class practices, including commercial litigation, intellectual property, corporate finance, private equity investments and buyouts, consumer products, retail, financial services, employment and labor, life sciences, outsourcing, and mergers and acquisitions.
Our lawyers are united in their passion for what they do and their dedication to our clients and communities. Each month we will feature one of our diverse, LGBTQ+, or women lawyers who calls MoFo home.
Alexis Amezcua is a litigation partner in MoFo’s San Francisco office. She is a highly accomplished class action and commercial litigator who represents both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal court, as well as arbitration proceedings. She also has an active role in the firm’s pro bono efforts, recently representing two Rohnert Park residents who claimed their right to privacy was violated by an unreasonable police search of their home. Alexis was also recently on the ground in Texas and New Mexico, where she was able to reunite a father and his daughter who had been separated at the border as they sought asylum.
We know our differences make us stronger. At Morrison & Foerster, we not only celebrate our differences, but call upon them to better serve our clients, communities, and teams.
Whether tackling complex disputes, winning high-stakes litigation for our clients, or leading the charge on landmark pro bono cases, our global team of litigators use their strengths to make a difference where it counts.
We are MoFo lawyers, leading the way.
