Hannah C. Waite Elected Director of Sheehey

Sheehey Furlong & Behm P.C. is pleased to announce that Hannah C. Waite has been elected as a Principal and Director of the firm effective July 1, 2023.  Hannah joined the firm in February 2021 as an associate with a practice focused primarily in civil litigation. Hannah has a broad civil litigation practice, serving business and individual clients in both state and federal court on matters ranging from employment to construction to medical malpractice.  She also has experience working on complex commercial matters, including representing both whistleblowers and corporations in cases brought under the False Claims Act.

Immediately following law school, Hannah worked at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York City.  She then clerked for the Honorable John G. Koeltl of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and for the Honorable Dennis Jacobs of the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.  Following her clerkships, Hannah practiced in the New York City office of Susman Godfrey, one of the country’s most highly regarded trial firms.

Commenting on Hannah’s partnership, Ian P. Carleton, Sheehey’s managing attorney, stated, “We could not be more pleased that Hannah is joining the Sheehey partnership.  Her instincts and critical thinking are second to none among attorneys of her generation.  It is difficult to think of an attorney who better epitomizes who we want to be as a firm, now and in the future.”

Hannah graduated magna cum laude and order of the coif from New York University School of Law, where she was a Pomeroy Scholar (one of the top ten students after the first year) and served as an Articles Editor on the NYU Law Review. Hannah received her B.A. cum laude from Middlebury College.
