Ashley A. Krupski is an integral member of a team that represents clients in complex business and corporate disputes, including contract disputes and unfair competition. As part of her litigation work, she prosecutes and opposes dispositive motions. Ashley was on the team that represented a pharmaceutical company in a three-month trial involving claims of contract interference and breach of confidentiality. The Morgan Lewis team secured a $415 million judgment in that case, the second-largest US jury verdict in 2011.
Ashley was also on the team that secured a decision requiring payment of more than $40 million by the opposing party for a Chinese textile company and its owner in a California civil case following a 40-day bench trial. This verdict was recognized as a top-10 verdict by The Daily Journal, California’s largest legal news provider.
As a former legal fellow in the firm’s Public Interest Fellowship Program, Ashley worked for a national environmental nonprofit organization and assisted with matters related to the National Environmental Policy Act and the California Environmental Quality Act, and on matters involving renewable energy.
Ashley maintains an active and varied pro bono practice. She has assisted on successful trial-level challenges to Environmental Impact Reports under the California Environmental Quality Act, has successfully secured a civil restraining order on behalf of a juvenile client, and has successfully fought eviction of a low-income client. Ashley is currently on a team working to secure rights for transgender individuals who are incarcerated.
While attending law school, she was an articles editor for the Hastings West-Northwest Journal of Environmental Law and Policy and a member of the Stetson International Environmental Moot Court Competition team.
