OVERVIEW

Amanda Beane counsels and defends clients on matters related to consumer protection and unfair competition, as well as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), privacy, contract trade secret and other commercial matters. She has significant experience defending class actions. During her more than 15 years of experience in courts across the country, Amanda has represented such clients as Coinstar, Redbox, Sprint and Zillow. Amanda is licensed in Washington and California, and she has tried cases in state and federal courts, including appeals and arguments before the Washington Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

In her litigation practice, Amanda focuses on defending businesses against claims under consumer protection and unfair competition statutes. These include the Lanham Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), state gift card acts, California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and Unfair Competition Law and New Jersey’s Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act (TCCWNA). As a complement to her litigation practice, Amanda counsels clients on their consumer-facing terms and conditions to ensure compliance with local, state and federal consumer protection and unfair competition statutes.

Amanda also counsels and defends clients against consumer claims under the ADA and related state laws. Her ADA practice focuses on claims related to access for blind and visually impaired consumers, particularly with respect to digital access, as well as for deaf and hard-of-hearing consumers.

She regularly defends consumer class actions under these and other similar statutes, including high-impact and nationwide class actions. Her experience also includes high-stakes trade secrets litigation and copyright and trademark litigation.

An author and contributor to articles on consumer protection and the ADA, Amanda has spoken at various CLEs, including on settling class actions, and she maintains a high level of commitment to pro bono work.
