Anne Harkavy Named One of Times Online's "Future Stars of America"

February 20, 2008

Times Online named WilmerHale Partner Anne Harkavy one of the “Future Stars of America,” a list that highlights ten up and coming lawyers in the US. Harkavy is a partner in the firm’s Litigation/Controversy Department and a member of the Government and Regulatory Litigation Practice group and the Public Policy and Strategy group. Times Online had this to say about her work as a “star” lawyer:

“After completing law school at Harvard in 1998, Anne Harkavy, a politics graduate, didn’t have to think twice about her next destination. “I’ve always been interested in the intersection between law and politics,” she explains, “so DC was the only place I wanted to be.” Nine years on and Harkavy is a partner in WilmerHale’s esteemed Washington public policy team. The 34 year old was number two in the team that acted for the University of Michigan in a recent case that established the current US rules on affirmative action; she handled the dispute from pre-trial until its final resolution in the Supreme Court. Harkavy, who took time out from the firm in 2004 to serve as Deputy National Counsel for Senator John Kerry’s presidential campaign, also regularly assists in congressional hearings and investigations. During the next few months she will be acting for BP in response to an oversight investigation by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.”
