Jennifer M. Mohamed
Jennifer M. Mohamed is an experienced attorney and a partner at The Bayne Law Group, LLC, and a health and wellness professional. Jennifer has recently launched her own wellness consulting business, Jen the Yoga Lawyer, LLC, offering training in optimal wellness for attorneys and professional leaders.
The Bayne Law Group is a sophisticated commercial practice law firm based in Princeton, New Jersey with satellite offices in New York City and Philadelphia that provides practical and strategic advice to sophisticated businesses of all sizes, including investors, entrepreneurs and professionals in a broad range of industries and sectors worldwide.
Jennifer’s areas of practice at The Bayne Law Group include frequently acting as full-service counsel to established and emerging businesses on domestic and cross-border issues, business litigation, corporate law, employment law, and transactional work. She became licensed to practice law in New Jersey and New York in 1999. She is a former president of the Princeton Bar Association and remains a trustee and the president emeritus.
Jennifer has been practicing law for over 15 years, and after working on all sides of the fence - as an environmental attorney for the NYSDEC, in private practice in Albany, New York and in Princeton, New Jersey, including for an AmLaw 100 law firm in the cleanup of Newark Bay and Passaic River—the largest environmental lawsuit filed in New Jersey - she holds a personal understanding of how stressful and unhealthy the legal profession can become. As a result, and in light of the added stress of Covid-19, Jennifer became inspired to offer wellness retreats for lawyers. “Yoga has taught me to maintain focus even when I am pushing limits and am in stressful situations. It allows me to bring a centeredness to everything I do and reminds me of who I am. This gives me tremendous inner strength and clarity which benefits me and my clients. I want to teach that to other attorneys,” she says.
Since her personal and professional experiences have equipped her to bring such a unique depth of knowledge to the wellness space, Jennifer recently founded the Optimal Wellness for Lawyers and Leaders (OWL) program at Jen the Yoga Lawyer, LLC. Jennifer’s goal is to help her other attorneys and professionals maintain a healthier lifestyle through yoga, meditation, and nutrition so that they can become healthier and happier and ultimately, more successful lawyers. Jennifer’s offerings include domestic and international classes and retreats and in-house programs consistent with ABA guidelines on attorney wellness. Jen the Yoga Lawyer LLC also offers complimentary wellness products, such as all-natural CBD, nutritional supplements, and essential oils. Jennifer’s goal is to guide lawyers to become conscious leaders in the post-Covid world.
In addition to her numerous achievements as an attorney and wellness expert, Jennifer has dedicated much of her life to improving the world around her. Jennifer uses her privilege as a lawyer to advocate for environmental and human rights topics that matter. As a humanitarian and an advocate for a more just, sustainable world, Jennifer believes that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect of basic human rights, and to have equal access to the law. A few of her most significant accomplishments include:
A certification in Green Economy from the United Nations
A bachelor’s degree in Russian language
A published Law Review article on climate change with the University of California Davis School of Law: “Silent Spring + 55: The Human Right to a Clean Environment”
Winning asylum for a political refugee from Tanzania as a pro bono attorney with Human Rights First
International philanthropic travel to India to support women and girls rescued from human trafficking and in Kenya with the Samburu Girls Foundation
