Elizabeth Ross Hadley focuses her practice on both government law and policy and litigation matters.
Elizabeth's government practice includes representing clients with legislative, regulatory, and administrative issues across all policy areas, with an emphasis on insurance regulation, economic development, technology, health care, education, the Texas Public Information Act, procurement matters, and campaign finance compliance in Texas. She has an intimate understanding of legislative and government agency processes given her prior experience working within the U.S. Senate, the Texas State Senate, and the Texas Department of Agriculture. Elizabeth utilizes this knowledge to provide exceptional service to clients in their interactions with Texas government, including advocating for clients before the Texas legislature and assisting clients with the rule-making process and advising on regulatory matters before state agencies, boards and commissions, as well as handling open records matters before the Texas Attorney General.
Her litigation practice includes the representation of pharmaceutical, consumer products, and medical device companies in national products liability and mass torts matters, as well as representation of insurance companies, financial institutions, health care providers, public and private corporations, and state governmental entities in various litigation-related matters. Elizabeth has wide-ranging trial experience in state and federal courts in both Texas and Mississippi, including first and second chair in jury and bench trials, motions practice, discovery, and mediation. She has handled cases from start to finish working with legal teams across the country to achieve desirable results for clients whether they are individuals, small businesses or large corporations.
Elizabeth’s advocacy for clients both in the legislature as well as in the courts gives her a unique perspective into how laws affect businesses and allows her to advise clients from both a legal and legislative viewpoint. This enables Elizabeth to provide valuable insight to clients whether they are working through the legislative, regulatory or litigation process, and a strategic approach to the client’s needs that encompasses one or all of these strategies.
