Heaven L. Chandler



Heaven Chandler helps clients address the myriad concerns attending investment management matters — all while resolving operational and regulatory challenges.

Prior Experience

Heaven’s initial introduction to the firm was as a summer associate. She assisted the litigation and investment management groups with discovery and mail and wire fraud charging requirements research, in addition to conducting due diligence reviews for Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings and business acquisitions. 

Prior to that, Heaven worked as a summer associate for Dorsey & Whitney, supporting the trial and corporate groups, and for United Health Group, shoring up client contracts and researching variations in state law on certain legal issues. She first made her foray into law clerking for BrownWinick, where her work focused on identifying ways to enhance client service.

Personal Interests

Heaven enjoys watching sports. She is particularly invested in track and field as she was a heptathlete during her time at the University of Iowa. (Go Hawks!) From that experience, she has grown to love researching topics related to the effect of sports within our society, including sports gambling and gender studies. In her free time, you can find Heaven trying out new food spots, on her couch watching musicals, or running and exploring the city with her dog, Sage.
