Melinda Kollross Named Chair of Clausen Miller Appellate Practice Group

August 21, 2019 / News

Clausen Miller is proud to announce the promotion of shareholder Melinda Kollross to Chair of its nationally recognized Appellate Practice Group. Melinda previously co-chaired the Group with Ed Kay for over a decade. During that time, the Appellate Practice Group has grown to become a well-known trial monitoring, post-trial and appellate powerhouse for sophisticated insurance and commercial clients seeking outstanding appellate representation at trial and on appeal. The Group functions as national appellate counsel for several clients, and is regularly called in to assist on high profile/high exposure matters nationwide. Ed Kay will continue his active practice in the Appellate Group.

Clausen Miller President Dennis Fitzpatrick stated: “We are so pleased to name Melinda Chair of the Appellate Practice Group after 28 years of service to Clausen Miller. She embodies the Firm’s longstanding commitment to thoughtfully mentoring its young attorneys, providing outstanding opportunities for career advancement, and fully supporting women in leadership roles. Clients expect the best from Clausen Miller, and Melinda delivers on that promise.”

Melinda credits Clausen Miller and her appellate colleagues for her success: “I have been honored and blessed to work for a Firm that has supported me through every stage of my career, to have been mentored by two appellate greats (Jim Ferrini and Ed Kay), and to have Appellate Practice Group members who are not only the best in the business but terrific people as well.”
