Kelly graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law, and has spent the vast majority of her legal career working at prominent, top-tier national law firms. Although her practice has primarily been in the area of corporate restructurings and bankruptcy, this practice area has provided her with extensive business, corporate and litigation experience.
On the business side, Kelly represented companies in some of the largest and most complex bankruptcy cases, which enabled her to immerse herself in on-going business operations. She gained wide-ranging exposure to all aspects of her clients’ business and operational needs by providing legal counseling on numerous issues, including lease and contract interpretation and negotiations, supply chain and vendor disputes, IP issues, disclosure obligations, corporate governance, financing and liquidity issues, environmental matters, and employee concerns. Her experience working on the intersection of these various legal matters allowed her to see the big picture in order to mitigate risks for clients and anticipate issues before they arose.
