Amy Keller One of Ten Women of Influence Honorees
CHICAGO – The Chicago Business Journal has honored DiCello Levitt Partner, Amy Keller, with its 2020 “Women of Influence” Award. Amy is only one of ten women recognized by Chicago Business Journal for her leadership both professionally and for providing a model for the greater Chicago community.
Amy provided her industry insights and experiences to the Chicago Business Journal that included describing workplace challenges, personal insights, and community activities.
Federal courts across the United States have appointed Amy to lead lawsuits on behalf of hundreds of millions of consumers against industry giants like Marriott, Equifax, Coca-Cola, Apple, Electrolux, and BMW, and in the past two years alone, she has negotiated more than $2 billion in settlement relief.
Among many community activities, Amy is an Executive Board member of the Public Justice Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that pursues high-impact lawsuits to combat social and economic injustice, protect the Earth’s sustainability, and challenge predatory corporate conduct and government abuses.
“I serve as a mentor for a number of younger attorneys in the Chicagoland area (who just happen to be female). I have an ‘open-door policy’ where they can reach out to me anytime for career advice, or even advice on how to deal with difficult opposing counsel [. . . .] Even though it’s the year 2020, they still find it difficult to make the same types of advancements in their careers as their male colleagues. This is why I speak out so openly about leadership opportunities for women and people of color in litigation and work with my colleagues to recommend appointing diverse applicants to leadership roles in nationwide class actions.”
