Senior Research Attorney Anne Bryan Hemenway

B.A., Harvard University, 1979, Cum Laude. J.D., Case Western Reserve University School of Law, 1985.  Member, New Mexico Bar. 

Before attending law school, Anne worked as a legislative assistant for former Senator Birch Bayh and former Senator Joe Tydings in Washington, D.C.  Upon graduating from law school, Anne practiced commercial law for five years at the law firm of Montgomery & Andrews in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  She has been with NLRG since 1990 and specializes in Bankruptcy, Creditors' Rights, Commercial Contracts, Church Law, and other issues involving commercial litigation and consumer protection issues, including issues arising under the U.C.C., Carmack Amendment disputes, employment contract disputes, and issues arising under federal and state consumer protection statutes. She has authored multiple articles for NLRG’s client newsletter, Report from Counsel, and has written numerous law review articles for clients in the area of banking law and constitutional issues.  A recent example of Anne’s work was a project involving researching and writing numerous briefs for the plaintiff international food company in a case brought against the U.S. Trade Representative for damages arising from the wrongful imposition of retaliatory duties, which the plaintiff food company won on summary judgment.  The decision was recently affirmed by a federal court of appeals.

Anne has been actively involved in the Charlottesville community for 20 years.  Most recently, she served as President of the Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center, a nonprofit, hands-on education and history center, and she is currently chairing the building and site committee that is overseeing the design and construction of a 2,500-square-foot "green building" for the Center.  She has also served as president of both the North Downtown Neighborhood Association and the Burnley Moran Elementary School PTO.  Anne also raises money for the Charlottesville High School Orchestra and other community organizations.  She participates in numerous athletic events, and enjoys reading and cooking.
