Reeny Philip is a dedicated litigator devoted to a client-first philosophy.
Reeny’s work in the public legal sector and diversified law school involvement bolsters her litigation practice. Prior to attending law school, Reeny attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio under the prestigious Provost’s Scholarship. While an undergraduate, Reeny interned for a United States Senator for two consecutive summers, in addition to working as a paralegal at a civil rights firm.
Returning to her hometown of Chicago, Reeny attended Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She served on the executive board for Loyola’s Consumer Law Review as the Symposium Editor where she led a symposium focused on issues in consumer law that disparately impacted minority groups. Additionally, Reeny was a part of a diversity program that gave her hands-on experience with a Fortune 150 company where she worked on antitrust issues, privacy compliance, intellectual property issues and contractual disputes. She then served as a judicial extern for Cook County Circuit Court Judge, the Honorable Pamela Meyerson.
Reeny found her passion for litigation through participating in Loyola’s nationally recognized moot court program, where she competed in tournaments across the country and was awarded the titles of Midwest Regional Champion, National Runner Up and National Best Brief. Before joining Lightfoot, Reeny honed her skills as a law clerk in the commercial litigation practice at a Chicago based firm. She continued to build her practice while working in employment litigation in a Houston based firm upon graduation.
Outside of the office, Reeny most values spending time with her family and friends. You will find her cooking, hiking, and traveling with her husband, Sybil. Reeny also enjoys being creative and is constantly picking up new hobbies ranging from acrylic painting to calligraphy.
