Courtney’s passion for the law shines through in every aspect of how she represents and fights for her clients.
Courtney’s practice focuses on complex litigation, including class actions, trade secret litigation (Uniform Trade Secrets Act or UTSA), product liability, and Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), with clients from a broad array of industries, such as the energy sector, aviation and life insurance.
Her experience as a criminal intelligence analyst gives Courtney a unique approach to litigation, allowing her to analyze seemingly unwinnable cases and find solutions for clients, including attacks on summary judgment and class certification.
Courtney also channels this experience into her e-discovery (including electronically stored information or ESI) practice, balancing her client’s goals of accuracy and efficiency. From large-scale document reviews to targeted collections, Courtney leverages her knowledge of e-discovery tools such as Technology Assisted Review (TAR) to develop collection and review strategies that best fit her client’s needs.
She is currently the lead associate representing her client against class action lawsuits pending in federal courts nationwide. As lead associate, Courtney has managed e-discovery and helped her client with class certification, summary judgment and appeal.
Courtney serves her power company clients in a variety of ways, acting as lead associate in lawsuits with solar developers and product manufacturers and defending her clients in multiple $100 million dollar disputes involving power outages at oil refineries.
Courtney has extensive e-discovery experience and has acted as a lead associate managing discovery in complex, multimillion dollar disputes, securities investigations, internal investigations and class action litigation. Her experience includes the use of technology-assisted review to manage her document review team.
Courtney acted as second chair in a two week, $20 million jury trial. After this trial, the judge noted that her cross examination of the opposing party was one of the most effective parts of the entire trial.
Before attending law school, Courtney worked as a criminal intelligence analyst assisting in the investigation and prevention of matters threatening public security.
