Nancy Harris, Leading Business Litigator, Joins Meyers Nave

Meyers Nave proudly announces that Nancy Harris has joined the firm as a Principal in the Commercial Litigation Practice.  Nancy is an accomplished trial lawyer who handles a wide variety of litigation matters and brings nearly 20 years of experience helping individuals and companies resolve commercial disputes, regulatory compliance investigations and related litigation throughout California and across the country.  She has special expertise in governmental compliance and investigations, unfair business practices and false advertising, consumer class actions, data security, intellectual property, and insurance coverage.

Nancy’s clients include multinational corporations, privately held startups, and corporate officers, directors and executives.  Her experience covers a variety of industries, including software as a service, healthcare, accounting, publishing, banking, retail, manufacturing and real estate.  Nancy’s cases often involve high-profile matters that receive media attention and recognition such as a litigation result that the Daily Journal selected as a Top Defense Verdict.

Nancy focuses on resolving engagements prior to trial, however she has also achieved successful results when trial was merited.  Examples of recent results include obtaining a $16 million arbitration verdict in an insurance coverage dispute, obtaining dismissal with prejudice of a false claim qui tam action and declination to proceed by the U.S. Attorney in a case involving public benefit claims, first-chairing a two-month trade secret jury trial that resulted in a five-fold reduction of the client’s overall exposure, and leading the defense and settlement of a nationwide class action asserting privacy claims arising from a data breach.
