Ms. Lockner is a partner in the firm's business litigation department and has extensive experience in handling—and solving—a broad array of problems for her clients. As a trial attorney, she has the skills and expertise to wield the threat of trial as a sword, but understands and appreciates her clients need to use it only as a tool of last resort. Instead, Ms. Lockner focuses on understanding her clients’ business objectives and risk tolerance to determine what constitutes a successful outcome and then implements a strategy to achieve that result.
