Lauri Mazzuchetti, Kelley Drye
Speaking Session: TCPA Litigation Update Panel
Lauri Mazzuchetti’s practice focuses on commercial litigation and consumer-oriented class action defense, representing clients in FTC and state attorneys general investigations and other litigation. She is a member of Kelley Drye’s Executive Committee and the former managing partner of the firm’s New Jersey office.
Lauri advises consumer-facing businesses, including telecommunications carriers, retailers, food companies and emerging technology companies in complex class action cases in federal and state courts in a multitude of jurisdictions. She represents clients in commercial litigation in federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels, as well as in arbitration and mediation fora. She regularly provides guidance to clients facing complex legal challenges and resolves such matters as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
As cofounder of the firm’s Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) practice, Lauri has defended dozens of TCPA cases and government-plaintiff suits nationally, and she routinely counsels some of the nation’s largest companies on an array of regulatory and commercial issues related to the TCPA and telemarketing issues. Most recently, Lauri won summary judgment for a multinational corporation in a multi-district TCPA class action in federal court that addressed the substantive law regarding TCPA third-party liability claims. Law360 profiled Lauri’s recent wins in TCPA and consumer fraud cases as part of their 2017 “Consumer Protection Practice Group of the Year” awards, which recognized several Kelley Drye litigation wins that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year. In the 2017 edition of Legal 500, Lauri is noted as ‘highly rated’ and the firm’s class action team is recommended as an “excellent group exceling in class actions and mass tort litigation, with a particular niche in Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) cases.”
