OVERVIEW

Kendra Haar focuses on complex commercial litigation and on combating cybercrime and enforcing website terms of use. Kendra is a member of a rapid response enforcement team that vigorously defends clients against illegal spamming, phishing, pretexting, social engineering and other forms of malicious Internet behavior. Actions to prosecute individuals whose conduct interfere with client websites or Internet activity often include Internet forensic work, cease-and-desist actions and formal litigation. Kendra is involved with the firm’s Blockchain Technology and Digital Currency industry group, where she advises clients that deal with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to comply with financial services law, including the Bank Secrecy Act, FinCEN regulations, Anti-Money Laundering requirements, and state money transmission and financial services laws.

Kendra also is experienced in defending employers in wrongful termination claims. When representing these clients, she readily understands the management perspective due to her pre-law experience in management at a major fashion retailer.

As part of her active pro bono practice, Kendra has assisted clients in immigration court with navigating the process of seeking asylum. She has also represented several inmates from the Arizona Department of Corrections, where she helped enforce their claims of excessive force used within the prison system. Kendra recently sat as second chair in a four day trial for such a claim.
