Cybersecurity Book

Samantha Booth is an associate in the firm’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution and Supreme Court & Appellate practice groups. She has briefed and argued successful appeals in a variety of appellate jurisdictions, including the Ninth Circuit, Fourth Circuit, and state intermediary and supreme courts, as well as secured victories for clients in trial court and arbitral proceedings.  Samantha understands how judges think, having clerked on the United States Court of Appeals as well as for a JAMS arbitrator.

Though she regularly assists clients across industries and with respect to a variety of legal issues, Samantha’s practice focuses on matters involving consumer class actions, data privacy, and speech, including corporate speech and product labeling. For example, Samantha secured a significant victory for her client in a Fourth Circuit appeal that raised novel questions regarding political campaign speech.  She also successfully represented a technology company in a high-profile matter challenging government restraints on corporate speech implicating consumer privacy and national security.  Samantha regularly publishes and advises companies regarding emerging data privacy and cybersecurity issues, and assists companies in enforcing agreements to arbitrate and defeating class certification.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown, Samantha worked as a litigation associate for another top law firm, at which she handled securities and employment litigation matters. Samantha earned her JD from UCLA School of Law, where she graduated Order of the Coif and was honored as a Michael T. Masin Scholar.  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, and drafted several amicus briefs.
