Meet Arielle

Arielle Murphy, a native of Los Angeles, California, moved to London in 2017 and started working at McAllister Olivarius in 2018. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California in 2017 and her Master’s degree from the Courtauld Institute of Art the following year, where her research focused on documentary photography, gender discrimination within museums, and interpretations of the female body.

At McAllister Olivarius she works on a variety of cases including Title VII, Title IX, and workplace discrimination and harassment. She assists on a number of disputes between employees and former employers, including Atkinson, et al v. Mount Sinai Health Systems, et al, which she helped file in New York Federal court in April 2019. She loves working with clients and feels strongly about helping them achieve justice both through the law and through social and institutional change.

Her favorite place to work in the office is the sunny conference room. Away from the office, Arielle enjoys reading, yoga, running, going to breakfast restaurants, and hiking.

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

Sandeep Mander, Mander and Mander v. Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and anor

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

Dr Celeste Kidd, Aslin et al v. University of Rochester et al

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no-one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
