Ms. Flahive’s practice at Robinson & McElwee focuses primarily on litigation and involves several industries across the region.  Ms. Flahive has a specialty in antitrust litigation affecting the oil and gas industry, such as predatory pricing and horizontal price fixing claims.  She also has experience in preparation of antitrust compliance programs, policies and procedures for corporations and trade associations.

Ms. Flahive was an adjunct professor at West Virginia University in the fall of 2015, where she taught a course titled Agricultural and Natural Resources Law in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.  She also serves as a Newsletter Vice-Chair for the Agricultural Management Committee of the American Bar Association's Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources.

Before joining Robinson & McElwee, Ms. Flahive’s legal experience included a summer associate position with Grasch Law, PSC in Lexington, KY, where she worked on cases predominantly related to complex business litigation. She has also interned in the Antitrust Sections of both the Pennsylvania and Vermont Attorney General’s Offices.  While working for the Pennsylvania Attorney General, she was largely involved in merger review; often, such evaluations included collaboration with FTC attorneys.

Prior to attending law school, Ms. Flahive worked for Cargill Animal Nutrition as a dairy business consultant. While at Cargill, Ms. Flahive generated custom grain formulas to meet the needs of individual dairy farms and advised clients on ways to improve their dairy business profitability in concentrated areas, such as crop and feeding management, cow health, and commodity purchasing decisions.  Ms. Flahive’s interest in milk pricing and the volatility of dairy farm profitability led her to an increased awareness in antitrust issues in the industry, and sparked her interest in attending law school.

Ms. Flahive attended Pennsylvania State University’s Dickinson School of Law, where she received the CALI Award for Legal Writing in 2011.  Ms. Flahive served as an Executive Board Member of the Penn State Journal of Law and International Affairs, was a member of Phi Alpha Delta, and authored case law updates for the American Bar Association’s Agricultural Management Committee Newsletter (April 2012 Issue).

Ms. Flahive received a B.S. in Animal Science from Cornell University, where she graduated cum laude and with other honors including induction into the National Dairy Shrine and receipt of the American Society of Animal Science Scholarship Award.
