Wendi Werren (Associate)

PRINT

Wendi focuses her practice on providing exceptional client service in the areas of casualty/tort litigation, labor and employment law, construction law, business and commercial litigation, workers’ compensation, and product liability.

Prior to joining Heyl Royster, Wendi practiced with a prominent civil litigation firm with a focus on business and commercial litigation and casualty/tort litigation. Additionally, she served as a judicial clerk in the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit in Kane County and also had the honor of serving as judicial clerk in the Fifteenth Circuit in Ogle County, where she focused primarily on civil litigation.

As a law student, Wendi also served as a graduate assistant in human resources where she focused on employment law, civil rights, and Title IX investigations. Her work, in conjunction with the passage of the Illinois Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act, ignited her interest in defense litigation, including defense of the accused in administrative investigations in the educational setting. Wendi was also a member of the Northern Illinois University Law Review and achieved the rank of National Semi-Finalist in the American Bar Association Negotiations competition.
