Alexee Deep Conroy is Of Counsel in Quinn Emanuel’s New York office. Her complex commercial litigation practice representing both corporate plaintiffs and defendants focuses on antitrust, consumer fraud, and consumer class actions. She has represented a variety of Fortune 500 clients, including several in the consumer products and pharmaceutical industries and represents Plaintiffs in business litigation adverse to major financial institutions.
Ms. Conroy joined the firm’s New York office after completing a hybrid District-Appellate clerkship for Judge Edward Korman in the Eastern District of New York and in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, where Judge Korman sat by designation during the tenure of Ms. Conroy’s clerkship. She received her undergraduate degree from the Princeton’s School of Public and International Affairs, graduating with high honors and a specialization in health policy and bioethics. After working in health care consulting, she obtained a Master’s degree in Bioethics from the University of Pennsylvania. This background in consumer consulting, health, science, and medicine contributes to Ms. Conroy’s extensive litigation experience representing clients in the healthcare and consumer products industries.
Ms. Conroy also has unique experience performing risk management consulting for Fortune 100 clients, including performing liability risk assessments related to consumer products, implementing strategies for risk minimization, and regulatory compliance.
Ms. Conroy has served as a peer reviewer for the American Journal of Bioethics, as a bioethics consultant for a national family-planning nonprofit organization, as a speaker at academic bioethics conferences, and as a member of the University of Pennsylvania’s Institutional Review Board.
