Erin Higgins graduated cum laude from Georgetown University, and cum laude from Boston College Law School. She joined Conn Kavanaugh in 1991 as a Litigation Associate. She became partner in January of 2001 and is now the firm’s Managing Partner.
A true lawyer for lawyers, Erin defends other lawyers in legal malpractice actions and represents lawyers in disciplinary matters. Attorneys rely on her for ethics advice and counsel. She is a seasoned trial attorney whose practice also encompasses the defense of other professionals, including insurance agents, accountants, and financial professionals, and complex business litigation including insurance coverage matters.
Says Tom Gallitano, who served as the firm’s Managing Partner for the past nine years, “I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working alongside Erin for nearly 30 years. Having served as Conn Kavanaugh’s Managing Partner for the past 9 years, I have no doubt that with her combination of intelligence, thoughtfulness, and common sense, Erin was the right choice to lead the firm for years to come. Great opportunities lie ahead for all of us at Conn Kavanaugh.”
Erin follows a distinguished group of lawyers who have led Conn Kavanaugh since its founding in 1988. She takes over as managing partner at an exciting time for the firm, with recent partner-level additions to the firm’s corporate, technology and outsourcing, and product liability defense practice groups, and the hiring of several new associates.Share with your network:
