Amanda Lee-DasGupta

Experience

Amanda 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.

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.

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.
