Ise Tiapula joined Clare Locke as a Case Manager in 2015 and supports all stages of litigation from pre-litigation research and discovery to trial and appeal.

Ise manages Clare Locke’s litigation support needs, including by creating and maintaining document databases, cite checking and filing pleadings, managing electronic discovery, designing graphics, and running courtroom technology at trial. She has top-notch technical and audio-visual expertise, enabling the firm to deliver exceptional value to clients by handling many complex litigation support tasks in-house, saving the significant costs that are customarily associated with third-party e-discovery vendors and graphics professionals.

Before joining Clare Locke, Ise handled complex litigation at large law firms for nearly a decade. Her particularized skills and experience position her in the highest tier of paralegals practicing in the Washington, D.C. market.

Since joining Clare Locke, Ise has managed several multi-million dollar trials or arbitrations, including a $3 million jury verdict from Rolling Stone magazine and a confidential settlement of a multi-million-dollar dispute with a space tourism company.
