Biography

Jennifer Quinn-Barabanov is a skilled commercial litigator and recognized leader on class certification issues who has successfully defended companies in the consumer products, technology, energy, and other industries. She is recognized for achieving several noteworthy rulings throughout the country and spearheaded one of the first efforts to exclude expert testimony at the class certification stage that led to a denial of class certification.

In this role, she has formulated and implemented global strategies for achieving an effective, coordinated, and successful defense, including through the federal multidistrict litigation process, when appropriate. In the toxic tort area, Jennifer has defeated claims involving alleged groundwater, air, and soil contamination.

In addition, Jennifer has substantial experience handling high-stakes commercial disputes in areas such as: breach of contract, business torts, fiduciary duty and derivative claims, executive compensation, covenants not to compete, trade secrets, retaliation, whistleblower claims, dealer agreements, alleged fraud, and claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. She has particular experience resolving commercial disputes in areas subject to extensive state or federal regulation.

Jennifer chairs Steptoe’s Class Action practice, which includes dozens of lawyers across the firm’s US offices. As the co-chair of Steptoe's Women's Forum, she organizes a variety of programs to cultivate the unique perspectives of the firm's women lawyers and professionals.
