Swathi's career has spanned a wide range of practice areas at Hausfeld. From initial case investigations through trial, she has represented the firm’s clients in all aspects of litigation. Her work has encompassed some of the highest-profile class action sports and antitrust cases in recent years, and she has been involved in the recovery of over $500 million in settlement awards on behalf of the firm’s clients.
Prior to joining Hausfeld, Swathi worked on several presidential campaigns and in the U.S. Senate, both for then-Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and as a law clerk to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.
Swathi has litigated a variety of other cases across the legal spectrum, securing favorable results for her clients. In the antitrust realm, she has represented clients in the health insurance, transportation, and financial services sectors seeking to recover damages from price-fixing and market allocation cartels. As an avid sports fan, Swathi has relished the opportunity to represent current and former athletes as they seek fair treatment for the dedication they put into the game.
Swathi has also represented numerous financial institutions across the country who have suffered damages as a result of data breaches at retailers including Target, Home Depot, Kmart, and Wendy’s. Through her work on these cases, she has developed an expertise in data breach law and card brand recovery processes, and has helped to design and implement unique settlement frameworks in this developing area of law.
