Jennifer Arnett works closely with her clients to develop real solutions. She brings her small town common sense, Ivy League education, and Wall Street law firm training to every matter. Jennifer understands that any case can be a “bet the company” case for small companies, and she will work with you to obtain the best possible result.
Jennifer represents a range of companies, from small businesses, particularly those involved in the adventure and outdoor recreation industry, to multinational insurance companies. She delivers to her clients: litigation and pre-litigation representation, insurance coverage expertise, contract drafting, and general advice. Small businesses turn to Jennifer for contract drafting, advise on resolution of pre-litigation conflicts, and defense of contract-based claims and personal injury suits. Jennifer’s property and casualty insurance clients rely on her for coverage advice and opinions, defense of bad faith suits, pursuit of declaratory judgment actions where appropriate, and defense of insureds.
Jennifer attended Columbia Law School, clerked for a highly-regarded federal judge, and worked as a litigation associate at two top New York City law firms. She was then the Chief Litigation Officer of a national property and casualty insurance company for several years, before returning to practice at a national law firm where she was a partner.
Before law school, Jennifer focused on international human rights and immigrants’ rights, delivering basic supplies to a village of repatriated refugees in El Salvador, and volunteering with human rights organizations. After her clerkship, she was awarded a fellowship to work with low-wage immigrant workers, primarily Latinas, at the ACLU Women’s Rights Project. Jennifer habla el español, y puede trabajar con empresas hispanas.
Jennifer will always be responsive, efficient, and straight forward with you. As a member of your team, Jennifer will bring top quality legal expertise, presented in a down to earth manner.
