Conor Carrigan has been Of Counsel to the firm since 2017. Conor works on civil rights actions in the federal and state courts of New York.
Inspired by a deep commitment to human rights and social justice, Conor originally became a lawyer in Ireland, where he grew up. After a period in private practice, he spent over two years in Colombia working with the Colombian Commission of Jurists as a humanitarian law and human rights researcher and advocate. Among other projects, he played a key role in developing advocacy in response to the Colombian government’s abrupt extradition of paramilitary leaders to the United States on drug charges, demanding greater cooperation between the two governments to ensure that the paramilitaries also be held accountable for human rights violations.
Conor later moved to New York and attended CUNY School of Law where he graduated in 2014. During law school, Conor interned at Children’s Rights working on a class action lawsuit against the State of Massachusetts. He also interned in the Criminal Defense Practice of The Legal Aid Society, and at Beldock Levine & Hoffman where he worked on federal civil rights actions.
Following law school, Conor worked as a staff attorney at The Legal Aid Society and as a contract attorney before becoming Of Counsel to the firm.
