Nancy Rafuse has joined Sanford Heisler Sharp as its head of litigation, the firm announced Monday.
Rafuse most recently served as an equity partner at Seyfarth Shaw in Atlanta. She has defended Abbott Laboratories, CVS Pharmacy, Inc., United Parcel Service and Waffle House, Inc., among other clients, according to federal court filings.
Sanford Heisler, a New York-founded litigation boutique, is best known for its work on behalf of plaintiffs suing large employers. The firm garnered attention in recent years for representing lawyers in pay and other discrimination suits against their firms.
“For me this is a unique opportunity to be part of some of the most exciting and important civil rights litigation in the country,” Rafuse said.
Rafuse was vice chair of Paul Hastings’ employment practice before serving as managing partner of her own firm Ashe Rafuse & Hill, according to Sanford. She also opened Polsinelli’s Atlanta office in 2014, which she managed for three years.
