Partner and General Counsel, Proskauer Rose
“I am the General Counsel of Proskauer Rose LLP, a 700-lawyer international law firm. When I assumed that position earlier this year I became responsible for many matters, including a $65 million legal malpractice claim, which the Chair of my firm asked that I supervise personally. There was little time remaining before trial, and I had to master a great deal of information relating to a complex litigation involving real estate and aviation law that had been ongoing for three years. I therefore engaged the services of Ms. Rudolph, who came highly recommended to me by a colleague in New York with whom she had worked intensively.
Ms. Rudolph has provided me with sound advice and counsel in all aspects of the litigation. . . . She has spent a great deal of time working with our principal witness, whose deposition performance had been poor, and has made significant progress toward transforming him into an effective, engaging and believable communicator. There are many other aspects of the matter in which Ms. Rudolph has been deeply involved, and she has rapidly become my principal advisor on the case. She is never afraid to speak her mind, and expresses her positions clearly and forcefully. I have yet to disagree with her judgments, which are always sound and well supported. Perhaps above all, I have described her as ‘terrifyingly smart,’ based on the rapidity with which she learned the intricacies of the case – far faster than I was able to do – and afforded me the benefit of her cogent analysis and critical insights.
I am certain that I will continue to rely upon Ms. Rudolph in this and other matters for which I am responsible for my firm and my outside clients, and have recommended her to many of my colleagues in the New York legal community. She has accomplished so much already in her career, and I am looking forward to watching her become a national leader in her field.

“Alexandra was essential in uncovering hidden problems in a complex million-dollar lawsuit, resulting in a highly positive settlement for my client. That resolution would not have been possible without her help and direction. That was several years ago, and since then, Alexandra has repeatedly provided thoughtful, perceptive insight into a variety of litigated cases, as well as assisting with trial themes, witness preparation and jury selection questions.
I have tried over 50 jury trials to verdict, and try to bring Alexandra into cases as early as possible. This allows for discovery on the issues she uncovers well in advance of trial and any discovery cutoff. Otherwise, these issues tend to crop up at inconvenient times (such as during trial), when it is often too late to fix them.”

“Alexandra was excellent at the Law Bulletin’s Annual Employment Law Conference. She was succinct, professional, thought provoking and smooth in front of an audience of more than 200 Chicagoland litigators.
Ms. Rudolph brought objectivity, useful advice and unique insight to a panel that included a top local practitioner, a Fortune 500 general counsel and a U.S. District Court judge.”
