International law firm Dorsey & Whitney is pleased to announce that Partner Roxy Gonzalez has been appointed by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to the Commission on Judicial Selection as a Fourth Judicial District Attorney Member.

As a partner in Dorsey’s Commercial Litigation Group, Roxy represents clients involved in complex business litigation matters in a wide range of areas, including general contract disputes, business disputes, employment disputes, internal investigations, real estate disputes, products liability, and antitrust disputes. In addition, Roxy has experience representing financial institutions in arbitrations and other regulatory matters before FINRA. Roxy prides herself on providing her clients with practical advice to their legal and business issues.

Roxy is a dedicated advocate and devotes significant time to pro bono work addressing racial inequality and civil liberties. Most recently, Roxy worked with The Jim Crow Juries Project, a program through the Promise of Justice Initiative that seeks to help Louisianans heal from the injuries caused by Jim Crow juries.

Before joining Dorsey, Roxy was a law clerk to the Honorable Justice David L. Lillehaug on the Minnesota Supreme Court.

“Roxy demonstrates the highest standards of integrity, ethical conduct, and professionalism,” said Bill Stoeri, Dorsey Managing Partner. “Her appointment to the Commission on Judicial Selection is a well-deserved recognition, and we applaud her for her leadership and dedication to the legal profession.”

The Commission on Judicial Selection solicits, considers, and recommends candidates to the Governor for vacancies in the district courts and the Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals. The commission is comprised of nine at-large members, including the chair, and four district members from each of the ten judicial districts. Members are a mix of attorneys and non-attorneys. The Governor appoints 27 members, and the Minnesota Supreme Court appoints 22 members to the commission.
