Maslon is pleased to announce that Haley Schaffer, partner in Maslon's Litigation Group and member of Maslon's Governance Committee, has been selected as a 2016 Women in Business Award Winner by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. This year's honorees were recognized for their professional achievements, leadership and contributions to the broader Twin Cities community. The winners include industry-leading executives and entrepreneurs.
Haley focuses her practice on complex business litigation and appeals and has been included on the Minnesota Rising Stars and the Top Women Attorneys in Minnesota list by Super Lawyers® year-after-year. She has represented local and national clients in a wide range of high-stakes business disputes in state and federal courts throughout the country as well as in arbitrations. In addition, she is a current member of Women President's Organization, formed to improve business conditions for women entrepreneurs, and to promote the acceptance and advancement of women entrepreneurs in all industries.
Haley is extraordinarily involved in the community and makes a significant commitment to pro bono service each year. Most recently, she has served as cooperating counsel to the ACLU-MN and NAACP Minneapolis in a lawsuit filed against Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to secure the release of video footage documenting the police killing of Jamar Clark in November 2015. She has also been an integral part of a team of Maslon attorneys who have invested nearly 10 years to the pro bono representation of a Texas death row inmate, Douglas Tyrone Armstrong, through the ABA Death Penalty Representation Project.
