Covington & Burling LLP

As a partner in Covington’s Class Action practice in Los Angeles, Ashley Simonsen has successfully represented clients in the technology, financial services, and consumer brands industries – including Afterpay, Aristocrat, City National Bank, Clorox, Intuit, JPMorgan Chase, Meta (formerly Facebook), Mondelez, Navient, and Uber – through all stages of litigation, including trial, with a strong track record of success on early dispositive motions.

Simonsen led a Covington team in securing multiple victories for Facebook in a UCL class action in ND Cal. The plaintiff alleged that Facebook misrepresents on the Facebook app that advertisers will not be charged for clicks on the site from fake accounts. In June 2021, Covington defeated certification of a nationwide class of Facebook advertisers, and then won summary judgment in November 2021. These rulings will have important consequences for other technology companies facing UCL misrepresentation claims, particularly regarding invalid ad traffic.
