Marian Riedy, co-author with Kim Sperduto of Litigating With Electronically Stored Information, has collaborated with the Firm since 2001, and was instrumental in the Firm’s defense of the developer of the new U.S. Patent and Trademark Office campus. That defense involved environmental, contractual, and bid protest issues involving the largest lease in GSA history.
Marian graduated from Harvard Law School in 1981, and then clerked for the Hon. Chief Judge Harrison Winter on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. She also earned an M.B.A. degree from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. She then entered private practice as a litigation associate with Arnold & Porter, and thereafter specialized in complex civil litigation. Her clients have ranged from the Canadian softwood lumber industry, in an international trade dispute, to individuals asserting Title IX claims, and she has litigated cases in federal and state courts nationwide. Early in her career Marian was an attorney-advisor for the United States Agency for International Development. She traveled extensively in the Caribbean and South America providing legal counsel to the Agency’s missions in those regions, and is proficient in Spanish.
Marian is the author of numerous articles involving the use of advanced technologies in litigation. She is also a trained mediator and served as a volunteer mediator for the District of Columbia Superior Court for many years.
