Heidi’s clients of all sizes value her nimble approach to litigation and her ability to address a wide variety of legal challenges, from bet-the-company antitrust and securities class actions to internal corporate governance disputes and protection of trade secrets. No matter the subject area, Heidi takes a pragmatic and collaborative approach that respects her clients’ business and litigation goals. This approach has helped her achieve outstanding results for her clients, whether through early and favorable settlements, or victory through motion practice, at trial, or on appeal.
Heidi spent the first decade of her career at Heller Ehrman and Sullivan & Cromwell in Los Angeles. There, she represented major technology and banking clients in significant antitrust and securities matters at all stages of litigation, including through trial and appeal. In 2016, Heidi moved back home to join Lane Powell in Seattle. At Lane Powell, she has served as lead counsel in defense of multiple class actions, achieving complete dismissals of class actions asserting claims ranging from consumer protection, to antitrust, and securities. She has also counseled and represented clients across a broad range of other issues outside the class action context, from representing businesses in transactions for approval by the Federal Trade Commission, to victory in arbitration, to negotiation of early and favorable settlements of business disputes. Heidi also served as a leader in Lane Powell’s litigation department and led the antitrust and securities litigation teams.
