A two-time summer associate with Faegre Baker Daniels (currently Faegre Drinker), Kiera rejoins the firm following a legal externship with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Minnesota. During her externship, Kiera’s work included drafting publicly filed briefs, one of which resulted in a successful motion to dismiss a lawsuit against a federal agency. Kiera also assisted in researching equitable defenses to breach of contract and various other civil and criminal issues.
Kiera also gained experience developing risk management strategies, supporting litigation strategy and constructing defensive themes through a judicial externship with the Honorable Paul A. Magnuson of the U.S. District Court of Minnesota, as well as legal internships with Hormel Foods and Target.
Kiera had a nonlinear path to law. She has been everything from an HR data analysis intern to an investment group representative to a market research analyst. But these diverse experiences have all helped her empathize with the business imperatives that clients face. Everything about her diligent approach to client service flows from there.
