“Courtney is emerging as one of the young leaders in the sports law industry,” said Holt Hackney, the publisher of Hackney Publications. “Her growing legal expertise in the area of sports facilities and the amusement park industry, to name a couple, is noteworthy, and a big reason why we selected Courtney for the latest podcast.”

Dunn focuses her practice in the sports, recreation, and entertainment industries, bringing deep trial experience to defense litigation. She returned to Segal McCambridge in 2021 after serving as an associate at the firm for many years.

Earlier in her career, Dunn honed her skills in research, drafting pleadings and discovery, arguing substantive motions and conducting settlement negotiations at a litigation firm in New Jersey. She served as a law clerk for the presiding judge of the Civil Division of the Superior Court of Ocean County, New Jersey, as a law clerk for the Supreme Court of New York and as a legal intern for the Environmental Protection Agency.

Dunn earned her J.D. from Pace University, where she was a Pro Bono Scholar and a member of the Moot Court Honor Board, as well as a competitor on several successful national moot court teams. She served as an articles group editor for the Pace International Law Review and as vice chair of the Grading and Scoring Committee for the NELMCC. She holds a B.A. in psychology from Wagner College where she received academic and athletic honors.

Dunn credits her mentor, Segal McCambridge Partner and head of the Sports Law Practice Group Carla Varriale-Barker, for her support in the podcast.

The feeling is mutual.

“Courtney is a valuable member of the Sports, Recreation and Entertainment practice group at the firm,” said Varriale-Barker. “She is also involved with ‘Forward Together,’ the firm’s dedicated mentorship program for women. Her podcast appearance is an example of that program in action and Courtney’s continued development as an attorney.”
