      As a corporate litigator with a private firm, Kelly handled all aspects of commercial and representative litigation, including reviewing contracts, communicating with clients and corporate counsel to drive case strategy, researching, preparing and responding to discovery requests, drafting pleadings and dispositive motions in an array of subject areas, engaging in settlement negotiations, trying cases, preparing appellate briefs, and supervising and managing associates and paralegals.
