In addition to her robust litigation and trial practice, Jamie is managing partner of MoFo’s New York Office and chair of the Morrison & Foerster Foundation. She served as head of the New York Litigation Department, co-chair of the firm’s Complex Litigation and Trial Practice, chair of the firm’s global Pro Bono Committee for a decade, and a member of MoFo’s board of directors.
