Jeannine joined the firm upon its inception in 2009, and her practice focuses primarily on private enforcement of federal and state antitrust laws.

Jeannine brings to her legal work nearly two decades of experience in public policy spanning a wide range of legislative and regulatory fields, including agriculture, food safety, telecommunications, and financial services, among others, advocating for the public interest and consumers. For nearly five years, she worked as a legislative assistant for two United States Senators. As a Senior Policy Analyst for Consumer Reports, she advocated for consumer interests before Congress and federal agencies, testifying before congressional committees, appearing as a speaker at Federal Trade Commission events, and presenting oral and written testimony to federal regulatory agencies. Jeannine also served as an appointed member of two federal advisory committees related to pesticide safety. Between stints at Consumers Union, she served as the Vice President of Domestic Affairs for the National Cooperative Business Association, representing member-owned consumer, producer, and purchasing cooperatives. From 2010 to 2011, Jeannine clerked for the Honorable Cynthia M. Rufe, United States District Court Judge, Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Jeannine is adept and experienced in managing all aspects and phases of e-discovery, the complex process of discovering and producing electronically stored information (ESI). She routinely navigates detailed, complex and contentious ESI issues from dispute to resolution, including briefing and arguing e-discovery motions when necessary. As a member of the Sedona Conference’s Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production, Jeannine counsels Hausfeld’s litigation teams in negotiations relating to preservation, search, and production of ESI in cases often involving dozens of defendants, negotiates ESI search terms, technology assisted review (predictive coding) methodologies, and database disclosures and productions, and manages complex document reviews using advanced review analytics to speed discovery.


Jeannine’s clients run the gamut of industries and include payors of generic drugs, direct purchasers of eggs and potatoes, insurance subscribers, and student athletes, among others.


She really thinks hard about problems in cases and how to resolve them, but she's a great advocate. She really has a strong expertise in dealing with ESI negotiations and protocols and really understanding how the technological side of things works. If there's five stars, but I would give her six.
