Gwen concentrates her practice in employment, complex business, professional-liability litigation, and product-liability, and related advice and counseling.

Gwen counsels business and individual clients on employment issues in an effort to reduce the risk of future litigation. She has assisted private post-secondary institutions with employment matters and investigations related to Title IX. Gwen routinely handles suits for wrongful termination, breach of contract, and other employment and civil-rights issues.

Likewise, Gwen advises manufacturers and other business clients on contractual negotiations involving supply and purchasing agreements and other transactions. She has successfully represented clients in complex commercial disputes before both federal and state judiciaries.

Gwen emphasizes establishing close working relationships with her clients, and is valued for her listening skills and her dedication to earning the trust of others with whom she works.

Gwen frequently serves as pro bono counsel to victims of domestic violence through the Women’s Bar Foundation’s Family Law Project. In 2015, she was selected as part of the “Women’s Leadership Initiative,” a Women’s Bar Association program that identifies “rising stars” for leadership development.
