Morgan's practice focuses on corporate clients and she is also responsible for client engagement and client relationship management.

Morgan previously worked for a midsize law firm as an attorney in the economic development and international arenas, where her practice focused on tax and incentives. Prior to that, Morgan worked for a U.S. State's Department of Commerce, both as a project manager in global business development and as senior manager of international strategy and trade.

Her organized and diligent approach, combined with her knowledge of economic development and FDI, allow her to be a strong advocate and achieve results for her clients.
