Dean Kerry Abrams launches Lawyers and Leaders, a new series of conversations with pathbreaking figures in the legal profession and beyond. Her first guest is Marc Elias '93, founder of Democracy Docket and the chair of the political law group Perkins Coie in Washington. A nationally recognized authority and expert in campaign finance, voting rights, redistricting law, and litigation, Marc represents the national Democratic Party, as well as dozens of U.S. senators, governors, representatives, campaigns, and other Democratic groups. During the 2020 election cycle Marc's voting rights practice brought over 150 cases in 30 states, totaling over 120 victories in courtrooms around the country, and winning 64 of 67 post-election cases on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and the Biden campaign.
