Amanda Lee-DasGupta is an associate in Hausfeld’s Washington, D.C. office. She has spent her entire academic and professional life pursuing a passion for advocacy as a check on powerful institutions, knowing that those without resources are those most vulnerable to exploitation.
Amanda was drawn to Hausfeld’s longstanding dedication to the public interest and its creative approaches to seeing justice served. She has brought her dedication and diverse practical skillset to the firm’s complex tort and product liability litigation practice. Current representative matters include the Boston Youth Tobacco Litigation, the Chinese Manufactured Drywall Litigation, and the Zofran Products Liability Litigation.
Before joining Hausfeld, Amanda worked for several years representing women who had been gravely injured by corporate negligence and misconduct. She prided herself on helping women tell their own stories and advocating for them through every step of the litigation process.
While attending the George Washington University Law School, Amanda focused on labor and international law and policy. She became a member of the Public Contract Law Journal and the Mock Trial Board. Prior to law school, Amanda worked for the International Affairs Department of the American Federation of Teachers, organizing with the embassies of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire to support universal education and eradicate child labor in African cocoa fields.
Amanda and her husband spend their spare time raising two upstanding (and enormous) dogs, traveling the world one pastry at a time, and binge-watching Frasier.
