In each client engagement she undertakes, Rachel strives to achieve the best results possible while managing costs along the way. But, equally as important to her clients, is the strong rapport that she develops with them. From their first interaction, Rachel takes the time to get to know her clients, making it clear that they are truly important to her. Part of this relationship building is evident in her dedication to responding quickly and efficiently to client inquiries, without ever sacrificing the quality or thoughtfulness of her response. It’s this reputation for service and skill that sets Rachel apart.
Rachel focuses her practice on complex business transactions and litigation. Specifically, she approaches her work in the online advertising and iGaming spaces with an enthusiasm and drive that mirrors these rapidly evolving, cutting-edge industries. Rachel’s professional career has developed alongside these industries, so when clients call her about an issue, she understands their needs like few others. She speaks their language, deeply understands their businesses and has likely already worked with clients to resolve similar challenges. Navigating the complex regulatory and legal issues of affiliate advertisers and iGaming platforms is second nature to Rachel and she knows what it takes to resolve business interruptions and get her internet-based business clients back up and running.
Rachel’s experience focuses on all areas of Internet advertising and marketing; examples of her work include:
As the iGaming industry has entered the legal spotlight, Rachel has followed its developments closely, regularly publishing articles on the dynamic iGaming landscape in the U.S. She applies her knowledge of iGaming regulation to her clients’ litigation needs, having written winning motions related to antitrust and RICO issues, conducted discovery, and been involved in class actions brought by players. In the courtroom, clients can rely on Rachel to know the facts of a case in such detail that she can advance arguments quickly and think on her feet when responding to arguments presented by opposing counsel. By combining her solid understanding of the industry with her ability to overcome challenging legal issues in order to identify legal grounds that work in her clients’ favor, Rachel is able to meet her clients’ high-stakes needs.
Rachel is a member of the board of the Maryland Defense Counsel, where she currently serves as program co-chair and formerly held the positions of products liability chair and sponsorship co-chair. She began developing her trial skills in the product liability defense and general commercial litigation practice at Venable LLP. Rachel strengthened these skills at Meyers, Rodbell & Rosenbaum, P.A., where she represented insurance companies in lead paint litigation.
