Bethany Lukitsch
McGuireWoods LLP

McGuireWoods partner and class action co-chair Bethany Lukitsch shaped the landscape of class action and complex litigation in 2020 as national retailers, financial institutions and global product manufacturer clients turned to Lukitsch to defend novel class actions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and high-stakes litigation. She also cemented her reputation as a go-to adviser for companies needing guidance navigating the California Consumer Privacy Act in the first year of its implementation and interpreting the California Privacy Rights Act, which passed last November and becomes effective Jan. 1, 2023. Clients requested her assistance in defending against claims and to comply with laws that arose out of the COVID-19 pandemic. She spearheaded significant thought leadership in a multi-part blog series on coronavirus and class actions for the firm’s Class Action Countermeasures blog and co-authored the chapter on class actions in the timely 2021 American Bar Association publication, “Infectious Disease Litigation: Science, Law & Procedure.”
