Messerli Kramer is thrilled to announce that our Business Litigation team has added another leading litigator to its group. Jacklyn Vasquez comes to Messerli Kramer following a distinguished tenure in the court system, including two federal judicial externships – one with the Honorable Susan Richard-Nelson in Minnesota and the other with the Honorable Terry J. Hatter out of California – and most recently, she served as a law clerk for the Honorable Karen A. Janisch in Hennepin County.

With an extensive background in oral advocacy, writing, and legal research, Jacklyn Vasquez is committed to helping businesses prevail by being a fierce, yet strategic, advocate. Her time in the courts allows her unparalleled insight into the inner-workings of case management and the decision-making process, and she prides herself on approaching cases with an outcome-based mindset that taps into those experiences.

At Messerli Kramer, Jacklyn Vasquez will focus her practice on commercial litigation, contract disputes, shareholder conflicts, discrimination claims, and a wide array of other business-related lawsuits and lawsuit mitigation strategies.
