As a native of Brooklyn, New York, Aleksandra Rybicki is a “tell it like it is,” big-picture thinker with a competitive drive to win. This perspective, combined with her passion for courtroom litigation, allows her to anticipate the path cases may take and be realistic with clients about potential outcomes.
Aleksandra practices in the firm’s Complex Litigation, Pharmaceutical Products, and Toxic Torts & Products Liability groups. Having represented individual and corporate clients in disputes involving complex commercial litigation, antitrust, employment, and professional liability matters in state and federal trial and appellate courts, Aleksandra has experience with all stages of civil litigation, including drafting complaints, responsive pleadings, discovery motions, dispositive motions, pretrial reports and motions, and jury instructions. She has represented clients at hearings, pretrial conferences, mediation, and at trial, and has first-chaired multiple civil bench trials and conducted corporate internal investigations involving employment and white collar matters.
Aleksandra’s notable successes include obtaining summary judgment for an industrial manufacturer in a toxic tort case alleging asbestosis, and obtaining a full dismissal for a fire-suppression engineering company in a products liability and breach of contract case alleging a defective sprinkler system.
Aleksandra has also represented corporations in merger and civil antitrust investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, and has managed complex document productions in antitrust litigation.
With employment litigation experience that includes defending companies against discrimination claims in state and federal courts and administrative agencies in matters involving sexual harassment, whistleblower retaliation, restrictive-covenant disputes, wrongful termination, and wage-and-hour violations, Aleksandra is also experienced in complex class action litigation defense, such as wage-and-hour collective actions.
Aleksandra earned her J.D. from the George Washington University Law School, where she was Articles Editor for the American Intellectual Property Law Association Journal. During her last year of law school, she was a Rule 16 Prosecutor in the State’s Attorney’s Office, Prince George’s County, Maryland, where she first-chaired multiple jury and bench trials to verdict. Following law school, Aleksandra served as a Law Clerk for the Hon. Sean D. Wallace of the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County, Maryland. She graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science from Adelphi University.
When not practicing law, Aleksandra treasures time with her two daughters and enjoys running and playing pick-up soccer to unwind.
