Anne E. Mulhern brings a dynamic combination of U.S. military, international development and consulting experience to her legal practice. Anne draws from her diverse background to represent and provide counsel to companies and public entities on a range of labor and employment issues.
Most recently, Anne provided counsel to clients in both the private and public sectors on a range of labor and employment issues. Over the last two years, she developed an expertise on COVID-19 protocols in the workplace, including regulations regarding vaccine mandates and ADA/Title VII reasonable accommodations.
As a consultant to USAID, Anne served first in North Macedonia and later, Kosovo, in Southeast Europe. Her work included strengthening the independence of judicial institutions to improve overall access to justice and eliminating bureaucratic red tape that hindered economic development in the private sector. She was subsequently named a Fulbright-Clinton Public Policy Fellow, which led to her work in Timor Leste (East Timor) in Southeast Asia as an advisor to the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, and later as a consultant for the German Agency for International Cooperation, where she developed the legal framework for Timor Leste’s burgeoning Maritime Administration.
Anne’s desire to pursue a career in law was sparked during her near-decade experience in the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) that took her from Connecticut to Hawaii to Arlington, Virginia. Over her career, she trained members of the Panama, Chile, and Canada Navies on maritime law enforcement procedures and methodologies; managed four officer accession programs that resulted in more than 150 commissions offered; and compiled and evaluated input from national, state and local government agencies during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill that was used in the daily briefings of the Secretary of Homeland Security.
The non-linear trajectory of Anne’s background has given her the ability to comprehend and evaluate complex situations, develop multiple problem solving strategies, to work successfully with people on different sides of an issue, and bring about resolutions to contentious matters, all of which gives her a unique advantage in her daily practice of law.
