Ami ElShareif joined Robins Kaplan as an associate in 2013 and already has been identified as a future leader at the firm.
ElShareif is a key member of the firm’s fast-growing health care group, litigating several high-stakes fraud schemes for some of the nation’s largest insurers. She has served as second chair on a jury trial and managed several cases, years ahead of her peers.
“I’m not an adrenaline junkie in terms of jumping out of airplanes, but I get that rush from my work,” ElShareif said.
ElShareif also has demonstrated a commitment to the profession that earned her a 2018 Excellence Award from the Hennepin County Bar Association.
In August, ElShareif began chairing the bar association’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. She also just finished her third year as co-chair of the association’s 1L Minority Clerkship program for diverse first-year law students. ElShareif is a member of Robins Kaplan’s mentoring and hiring committees and coordinator of its summer associate program.
“I see the importance of diverse perspectives in the law and how it serves our clients,” ElShareif said. “It’s essential that we bring those voices to the forefront. The best way to do that is to hire diverse attorneys early on and provide the necessary resources and mentoring to make sure that we retain them and that they advance and become leaders in the profession.”
