Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is proud to announce that partners Ann Marie Mortimer and Michele Beilke were recently named to the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2024 Women of Influence: Attorneys list. The award recognizes women who have displayed their leadership through professional achievements, community leadership, milestones, and awards.

Head of the firm’s commercial litigation practice and founder and managing partner of the Los Angeles office, Mortimer is well-versed in advising high-profile clients on data protection and compliance with regulatory mandates on privacy and data security. She was the lead lawyer defending an internet service provider in a class action lawsuit that has been deemed the largest data breach in history and was featured as lead counsel on one of the Daily Journal’s Top Defense Verdicts in California for her representation of one of the largest American multinational big box retailers in a class action lawsuit involving an alleged data privacy breach and its precedent-setting decision was one of the first dismissals of a California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) claim on the merits. Mortimer’s leadership in cybersecurity litigation extends to model leadership within her firm and the community as one of only a handful of female managing partners in California and a member of the firm’s executive committee.

Beilke, a partner in the firm’s labor and employment group, has more than 25 years of experience representing employers in California. Her practice focuses on the defense of state and national wage-and-hour class and collective actions, and single- and multi-plaintiff discrimination and harassment claims in state and federal courts. Beilke has extensive trial and arbitration experience. She is sought after by clients to provide counsel in high-stakes “bet-the-company” litigation and on critical California employment topics.

All honorees were profiled in a special supplement of the Los Angeles Business Journal published on May 27.
