Elizabeth Leong, a member of the firm's Business Litigation Group, focuses her practice on complex business and ecclesiastical litigation.
Complex Business Litigation
Elizabeth has extensive experience representing clients in complex commercial matters involving contract and business tort disputes, unfair and deceptive trade practices, antitrust, and products liability issues. She has handled many class actions, including matters involving the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), antitrust, and products liability claims. She is currently defending a university in a putative class action seeking a refund of tuition and fees due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She has achieved positive results for clients, such as successfully moving to strike class action and antitrust allegations in a case which sought $50 million in damages from a cable communications company.
Elizabeth defends religious organizations against vicarious liability and negligence claims arising out of allegations of sexual abuse. Her successes include winning a motion for summary judgment for a religious order in an action brought by two plaintiffs who claimed they were abused by the order’s founder.
Prior to joining Robinson+Cole, Elizabeth was an associate with a major law firm in New York where she was involved in complex commercial and trademark infringement litigation.
