In addition to employment and business tort litigation, Kelly routinely represents clients in defending and resolving complex, multi-party commercial matters, regulated investment advisor and broker litigation, and contract disputes.

On a pro bono basis, Kelly has been involved in civil rights and constitutional litigation and international child abduction litigation under the Hague Convention in federal District Courts, the United States Courts of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court.
