Cybersecurity Book

Samantha Booth is an associate in the firm’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution and Supreme Court & Appellate practice groups.  She has briefed successful appeals in a variety of jurisdictions, including the Ninth Circuit, Fourth Circuit, and multiple state intermediary and supreme courts, as well as secured victories for clients in proceedings before arbitrators and mediators.

Though Samantha has assisted clients across industries—including banking, private equity, telecommunications, technology, and real estate development—and with respect to a variety of legal issues, she has developed particular expertise in First Amendment law.  Samantha argued successfully before the Fourth Circuit, where she obtained a judgment for her client on numerous novel First Amendment issues. More recently, Samantha obtained a favorable ruling in the Northern District of California in a high-profile case challenging government restraints on corporate speech. Samantha has also been a primary drafter in a number of state-court amicus briefs involving First Amendment issues.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown, Samantha worked as a litigation associate for another top law firm, at which she defended clients in matters involving securities, employment, and constitutional law, and was instrumental in securing a very favorable settlement of a securities class action.  Samantha also clerked for the Honorable Carlos T. Bea on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, as well as for a JAMS arbitrator.

Samantha received her JD from UCLA School of Law, where she was a Michael T. Masin Scholar and graduated Order of the Coif. During law school, she served as Senior Editor for the UCLA Law Review, published multiple law review articles relating to securities, finance, and clean energy issues, and was a principal drafter of several amicus briefs. She continues to publish regularly on issues such as federal jurisdiction and data privacy.
