Jennifer Goldstein is an associate in M&R's Los Angeles office and member of the firm’s Commercial & Business Litigation Department. In that capacity, Jennifer litigates complex contract, intellectual property, employment, and other business disputes from inception through trial in state and federal court and at arbitration. She also has significant experience litigating and mediating class action matters.
Given the high stakes, Jennifer employs a pragmatic approach to her cases, with a focus on swift resolution where advisable. Otherwise, she engages with the court and opposing parties on core legal issues early and often in the litigation she handles. A big believer in applying pressure at strategic points, Jennifer has successfully steered cases into extremely favorable settlements after bringing a single motion to compel documents within the first few months of discovery. She looks for opportunities like these in every case and seeks to achieve her clients’ goals while limiting their exposure.
Prior to joining M&R, Jennifer worked at law firms in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, where she litigated complex business disputes, including numerous class action matters, and represented artists in entertainment deals. In addition, she served as a Special Assistant Attorney General in the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia. In that role, Jennifer assisted the Attorney General and Assistant Attorney Generals in defending the District against employment, personal injury and constitutional tort claims.
In law school, Jennifer was an editor of the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law, which published her article entitled, “Freedom of Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation.” She also presented oral arguments to a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia as part of Georgetown University Law Center’s Appellate Litigation Clinic. As a testament to her advocacy skills while at Georgetown, Jennifer won the Williams Institute Moot Court Competition and reached the semi-finals of the William E. Leahy Moot Court Competition.
