Engelman Berger is eager to announce the expansion of our Litigation Department with the new hire of attorney Rachel Phillips. Rachel brings over seven years of experience providing her clients with innovative solutions and effective advocacy in the industries of banking and finance, food and beverage, health insurance, property/casualty insurance, sports, waste management, retail, and real estate. Rachel’s prior experience at a large international law firm includes representing and obtaining summary judgment on all counts in favor of a client facing over $16 million in damages claims for alleged breaches of contract, acting as second chair in a full-day trial which resulted in a $10 million deficiency judgment in favor of her client, and much more. Rachel’s addition brings great diversity to our firm’s commercial litigation, creditors’ rights, and class actions practice areas.
Rachel graduated from Seton Hall University in 2008 before obtaining her J.D. at the University of Arizona James E. Rodgers College of Law in 2012. During law school, Rachel was a Judicial Extern for United States District Court Judge David G. Campbell.
Rachel has been selected to Southwest Super Lawyers Rising Stars from 2016 to 2020. She previously served on the Board of Directors for the Phoenix Women’s Sport Association and the Maricopa County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division.
We are excited to introduce Rachel to our EB Team as we continue to serve clients and take our litigation department to the next level.
