2019 Up & Coming Attorneys: Ashley R. Bailey

A drive to understand how the world works led Ashley R. Bailey to a career in law.

The 2015 University of Wisconsin Law School graduate worked at Gray Plant Mooty before joining Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr’s new Minneapolis office this year.

She works in corporate law advising clients in areas including private equity and hedge fund formation, mergers and acquisitions, and general corporate matters.

“It’s work that involves a team-based approach to client service,” she said.

As a volunteer, Bailey does pro bono work for the Advocates for Human Rights and the Domestic Abuse Legal Advocacy Center. She recalled a case she worked on for the Advocates for Human Rights involving an asylum client around her age who had been through a difficult passage to the United States.

“I called to tell her she was granted asylum and kept it professional while on the phone, but when I got off the phone I was bawling, I was so excited,” she said. “When you’re helping others, you have a greater appreciation for your life and what you have.”

The attorney likes getting outdoors with her fiancé, reading books and spending time with family and friends. “I just like being able to relax,” she added.
