Claudia Hammerman Named a 2022 “Litigation Trailblazer” by The National Law Journal
- November 2, 2022
Litigation partner Claudia Hammerman was recognized as a 2022 “Litigation Trailblazer” by The National Law Journal. The publication, which recognizes leading litigators moving the needle in the legal industry, highlighted Claudia’s advocacy for women’s reproductive rights. Her advocacy includes successful efforts to block draconian abortion bans (before the Dobbs decision) in Missouri and Mississippi in district and circuit court; efforts to destigmatize abortion, including by organizing lawyers to participate in a much-publicized amicus brief recounting the importance of abortion to their careers and to giving them control over their life trajectories; and current efforts with the New York Attorney General’s Reproductive Rights task force to provide pro bono legal services to New York abortion providers and funders to ensure New York remains a haven for pregnant persons travelling from hostile states to obtain a safe and legal abortion.
