Her multiemployer plan practice includes advising multiemployer plans on drafting and amending plan documents, fiduciary responsibilities, and prohibited transactions and regularly represents multiemployer plans in delinquency litigation and withdrawal liability matters.

During law school, Maureen clerked with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Education and Labor Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
