Hannalore Merritt Named Partner and President of Osterhout Berger Disability Law!
Congratulations to Hannalore Merritt!
As of April 1, Hannalore has been named a Partner and our new President at OBL!
Her new duties can be best understood as what is usually called “Managing Partner,” and will be responsible not only for her own department (the Appellate Department), but also for typical managing partner duties including setting the vision for OBL going forward outwardly in terms of marketing, outreach, etc., as well, as inwardly in terms of improving our internal systems and office environment. We are very excited to have her as a Partner, colleague, and friend.
As Karl remembers: “My employee search game has improved a lot since six years ago when I hired Hannalore, but I love telling the story about how I found her with a Craigslist ad! I was immediately impressed with her, particularly with her strong mind and incredible organizational skills (I still don’t know how to do a spreadsheet 😊), but also with her amazing people skills and commitment to the community here at OBL. I’m incredibly proud of everything she has accomplished here and very grateful that she has committed to building an even stronger OBL going forward; and, I KNOW she can and will do it! In short, I just love her and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes.”
