In five years of practice, Melissa Muro LaMere has reached milestones many attorneys are still dreaming of at that point in their careers. She has proven to be a skilled litigator and has shown equal acumen representing pro bono clients in matters related to gender equity and diversity.
She found her way to her noncompete law practice area partially as a result of Maslon’s practice of joining new associates with a variety of partners in order to expose them to numerous areas of the law.
“I was able to work on a noncompete matter when I was a first-year associate, and it just clicked,” Muro LaMere said. “I loved the team and I loved that area of law.”
Working on matters involving noncompetition agreements, trade secrets, business torts and unfair competition and trade practices, Muro LaMere works with global leading companies to protect their business assets.
Her extensive pro bono work includes her current representation of the ACLU of Minnesota as it seeks the release of all video evidence related to the 2016 killing of Philando Castile by a St. Anthony police officer.
“Those are important matters that I’m glad to give my time to,” Muro LaMere said.
