Most Influential Women Lawyers: Sascha Henry


Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP

University of Minnesota Law School

Sascha Henry is a partner in Sheppard Mullin’s Los Angeles office. She is a Practice Group Leader of the firm’s 250-attorney Business Trial Practice Group, leads the firm’s Food and Beverage Industry Team, and also leads the Consumer Class Action Defense Team. One of her notable successes over the past year was obtaining a summary judgment in a nationwide false advertising class action in which plaintiffs alleged that Starbucks falsely advertises its lattes and mochas. In opposing the motion for summary judgment, plaintiffs argued the foam doesn’t count toward the volume of the drinks because foam isn’t measured on a volumetric basis, but the Court disagreed noting plaintiffs themselves alleged that milk foam is a component of the drinks. The team was able to convince the court that the data was misleading and suggestive and other experts’ opinions were irrelevant. The Court granted the motion for summary judgment in its entirety and denied the motion for class certification as moot.
