BIOGRAPHY

Moyenda Mutharika Knapp represents clients in all phases of employment law and business litigation matters, including the representation of litigants as first chair in jury trials. She counsels employers with regard to the discharge of employees, provides employment-related trainings, and litigates employment discrimination cases on behalf of employers and their management. Her employment law experience includes matters involving the Americans with Disabilities Act; Family Medical Leave Act; racial, reverse racial, gender, age, sexual orientation, and religious discrimination; and termination due to claims of retaliation and First Amendment retaliation.  She handles employment discrimination cases in state and federal court, as well as before administrative agencies, such as before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Illinois Department of Human Rights. She also handles wrongful termination claims before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.  In addition, she defends plan administrators and group welfare disability plans from employee welfare disability claims arising under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).

In her business litigation practice, Ms. Knapp handles breach of contract actions, Carmack Amendment cases arising from interstate trucking losses, and matters involving fraud, unjust enrichment, conversion, violations of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act, matters involving claims of breach of non-disclosure agreements, and actions for an accounting.

During her tenure as President, the Chicago-Lincoln American Inn of Court consistently achieved and was awarded Platinum status from the American Inns of Court, which is the highest level that an Inn can attain and awarded to only 22% of inns nationwide.
