Ghazal Tajmiri

Biography

Ghazal Tajmiri focuses her practice on representing corporate policyholders and/or their directors and officers in complex insurance coverage matters, from preemptive analysis of coverage to advocacy, dispute resolution, litigation, and appeals. She advises policyholders on the resolution of complex coverage disputes under various lines of insurance, including commercial general liability, directors’ and officers’ liability, employment practices liability, and first-party property and business interruption.

In addition to insurance coverage disputes, Ghazal has represented clients in a wide range of complex corporate and commercial litigation matters, including consumer fraud and privacy class action defense, labor and employment disputes, intellectual property litigation, contract disputes, unfair competition claims, fraud claims, and tort litigation. She also has experience defending and managing regulatory enforcement matters and internal investigations.

Prior to joining Blank Rome, Ghazal was a litigation associate at a San Francisco-based global law firm where her practice focused on complex commercial litigation. She began her legal career with a firm-sponsored one-year fellowship at the National Immigration Law Center where she worked on impact litigation (including a class action challenging the constitutionality of Arizona’s SB 1070 statute) and conducted legal trainings in English and Spanish. 

During law school, Ghazal served as a special issue editor for the Cornell Law Review, and participated in mock trial and moot court competitions, including the D.M. Harish Memorial Moot Court competition in Mumbai, India.

She is fluent in Persian/Farsi, and proficient in Spanish.
