The law firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, Professional Association, with offices in Manchester, Portsmouth, and Concord, as well as Woburn, Massachusetts, is pleased to announce that Rachel Hampe has been named to the Manchester Union Leader’s annual 40 Under Forty list.

Every year New Hampshire’s largest statewide newspaper identifies a list of forty individuals in the state, under forty years of age, whose actions are making a positive difference.  Rachel Hampe is one of a growing list of McLane attorneys on whom the honor has been bestowed since the program’s inception more than a decade ago.

Rachel is a Senior Attorney in the Litigation Department of McLane, where she focuses her practice on complex environmental actions and business litigation cases. She represents a broad range of clients in litigation involving breach of contract, general business disputes, construction, civil rights, products liability, land use disputes, actions against municipalities, contribution claims, personal injury, and insurance issues.

Rachel is a member of the New Hampshire Bar Association, the New Hampshire Association for Justice, the New Hampshire Women’s Bar Association and the Manchester Bar Association.  She is admitted to practice in New Hampshire and New York and is admitted to appear before the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire and the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

Last year, Rachel received the Fisher Cats Bellwether Community Champion Award, and in  2002, the Jon Meyer Award from the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union Foundation. 

She serves as a board member of the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire and the Red River Theatres in Concord.  She also serves as secretary for the board of directors of Girls, Inc., as well as on the steering committee for the Capitol Center for the Arts Ghostlight Society.

Rachel received her J.D. from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 1997 and resides in Hopkinton, New Hampshire.

Rachel joins several other distinguished McLane attorneys who have made the 40 Under Forty list in prior years, including Jennifer Parent, a Director of the firm and member of the Business Litigation, Employment, Education and Independent School Law, and Land Use Practice Groups; Mark A. Wright, Chair of McLane’s Intellectual Property Group; Daniel J. Norris, Chair of the Corporate Department; John E. Hughes, also a Director and a member of the Trust and Estates Department, and Kate Vaughn, a member of the Litigation Department and Education and Independent Schools, Employment and Labor Law, and Environmental Law Practice Groups.
