Tory has a combined background in finance and the law, which enables her to offer a unique perspective to the variety of commercial clients she represents as a member of Gallagher’s Litigation Group.
Prior to earning her JD from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, where she graduated magna cum laude, Order of the Coif, in 2022, Tory spent five years at a Baltimore-based investment firm. She first worked in relationship management for U.S. intermediary clients and later as a member of the fixed-income investment team.
In law school, Tory sharpened her trial skills as a member of Maryland Law’s National Trial Team and honed her appellate brief-writing and research skills as a student attorney in the Juvenile Lifer Advocacy Clinic. She served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Richard D. Bennett, U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland (2021); the Honorable Nancy M. Purpura of the Maryland Circuit Court for Baltimore County (2020); and the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the District of Maryland (2022).
Prior to joining Gallagher, Tory served as a law clerk to the Honorable Douglas R. M. Nazarian of the Appellate Court of Maryland (2022-23).
When she is not assisting clients, Tory enjoys cooking, travel photography, running (she has competed in the Boston Marathon), skiing, and exploring north Baltimore with her Labrador mix, Penny.
