Jeanine’s diverse practice focuses on high-stakes, complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts across the country, litigating cases through trial and appeal.  Jeanine has experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in tort disputes, breach of contract, securities fraud, common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and antitrust cases.  In particular, Jeanine has considerable expertise defending defamation and related torts, successfully defeating such claims against several high-profile clients, including Elon Musk in a groundbreaking defamation case arising out of statements on Twitter.  Jeanine was a key part of the trial team that obtained a complete jury verdict in Mr. Musk’s favor and avoided plaintiff’s claim for $190 million in alleged damages, and has gone on to successfully represent Mr. Musk in numerous other First Amendment matters.  Other representative clients have included SoftBank Vision Fund, Tesla, Qualcomm, and Samsung, among others.

Jeanine has nearly two decades of experience litigating cases at all stages, including taking and defending depositions, leading factual investigations, managing large teams during all stages of discovery, preparing dispositive motions, and going to trial.  Jeanine also has extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution processes, including arbitration and mediation.
