Bio

Ms. Signorelli-Cassady received her J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2016. During law school, she was the managing editor of the Harvard Journal on Legislation and completed 290 hours of pro bono work. Trained in negotiation techniques, Ms. Signorelli-Cassady was also a teaching assistant with the Harvard Negotiation Institute, where she helped teach negotiation techniques to executives from around the world. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Signorelli-Cassady served as a law clerk to the Honorable Roslyn O. Silver of the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. During her clerkship, Ms. Signorelli-Cassady also assisted with matters taken by designation in the United States Courts of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

In addition, she had, as of 2019, drafted six amicus curiae briefs regarding white collar and criminal law issues, five of which were filed with the United States Supreme Court and one of which was filed with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Ms. Signorelli-Cassady also spent three years working for the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office prior to law school. Since joining Jenner & Block, she has worked on matters involving the DOJ, SEC, various European enforcement authorities, internal investigations, and individual criminal defense representations, as well as general litigation matters. She has also published on a variety of topics, including FCPA related civil litigation, SEC enforcement developments and constitutional criminal procedure.  She co-authors Jenner & Block's bi-annual Business Guide to Anti-Corruption Laws, has co-authored a chapter for GIR regarding criminal penalties, and has published on a variety of other topics, including FCPA enforcement trends and constitutional criminal procedure.   

Ms. Signorelli-Cassady is admitted to practice in Illinois. She previously received two B.A. from Florida State University in 2010, graduating magna cum laude and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
