ProfessionalsAlexia D. Korberg
Alexia is an associate in the Litigation Department, where she specializes in complex civil litigation. She represents clients in high-stakes commercial disputes across a range of industries, including private equity, banking, energy, insurance, technology, and biomedicine. She has extensive experience in state and federal court, at both the trial and appellate levels, and in arbitration. Alexia's first career was in private equity, and she applies her concomitant understanding of finance, securities, and business to all of her commercial representations.
Alexia also has an active pro bono practice. She was part of the legal team that successfully litigated United States v. Windsor from the district court to the U.S. Supreme Court, striking down the key provision of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and a series of cases in Mississippi that invalidated the state’s bans on gay marriage and adoption. Alexia has also co-authored amicus briefs to the Supreme Court and several circuit courts, including in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt on behalf of lawyers who have had abortions.
The American Bar Association honored Alexia with its "On the Rise Top 40 Young Lawyers" Award in 2018, and the LGBT Bar Assocation recognized her as one of the "Best 40 LGBTQ+ Lawyers Under 40" in 2019. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The National Law Journal, Slate and elsewhere, and she regularly speaks at law schools about her practice.
