Alumni of Boston College Law School at Sullivan & Cromwell practice within a broad range of areas under our General Practice (corporate) and Litigation Groups. Two S&C partners are alumnae of the Law School: Litigation Partner Sharon Nelles (BC ’93) is a member of the Firm’s Managing Partners Committee; she represents financial institutions and global companies in civil litigation, regulatory, congressional and criminal investigations and enforcement actions. Rita-Anne O’Neill (BC ’94), a Los Angeles-based partner in the Firm’s General Practice Group, advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings and leveraged finance transactions, and disclosure and governance.
 
In keeping with Boston College Law School’s commitment to social and economic justice and service to others, many BC Law alumni are actively involved in pro bono and volunteer work. Sharon is the co-president of Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert; Rita-Anne has represented Valor Academy, a charter school in North Hollywood, California, in its corporate formation, governance and application to the Internal Revenue Service for tax-exempt status. Associate pro bono work has included immigration and Social Security proceedings.
 
In addition to becoming partners of the Firm, BC Law alumni who join S&C go on to pursue a range of prestigious opportunities. S&C alumni who attended BC Law School currently work as general counsels of Fortune 500 companies and directors of financial institutions, among other positions.
 
We hope you will take the time to learn more about BC alumni, our presence at the law school and how to apply on these pages.
