Marketing & Transactional Paralegal

Print Bio

Kelli brings more than 15 years of creative problem solving and professional experience to Leibowitz Law.  She spent 10 years as a transactional paralegal, most recently at Endo Pharmaceuticals and Teva Pharmaceuticals where she supported global operations, primarily in R&D, manufacturing, IT and business transactions.  

Shortly before the pandemic hit, Kelli joined EDA Contractors as its first human resources department manager.  Kelli worked closely with the safety director to quickly formulate and implement COVID-19 policies and processes (from scratch) to support staff and to streamline operations into what eventually became the new normal.  At EDA, Kelli splits her time between HR and legal, where she is a senior paralegal supporting indemnity requests and contract review.   Kelli also manages day to day human resources operations, including hiring and onboarding personnel based on a process that she created and implemented to improve inter-departmental communications.  

At Leibowitz Law, Kelli provides vision and marketing support, including drafting, designing and review of web site content and marketing materials, interfacing with outside vendors and serving as a key sounding board for law firm operations, staff relations, hiring and strategic planning.  She also drafts and reviews contract in the clinical trials and IT spaces.  Kelli brings a fresh perspective to solving operational challenges and supporting the firm’s mission to empower life sciences.
