CaseyGerry partner Gayle M. Blatt has been lauded as one of San Diego’s Top Influential Women for 2019 by The Daily Transcript. The annual list was published in a special supplement published Feb. 27, 2019 to honor the city’s most talented, innovative and influential women.
Blatt, who heads CaseyGerry’s complex litigation practice group, was featured for her work on high profile, multi-million cases, including her work with David S. Casey Jr. on class action litigation targeting VW following the diesel emissions scandal – resulting in the largest settlement in consumer class action history.
She enjoys the challenges of taking on a company with a complex product. “I have always felt that one of the best things about the legal profession is you are constantly learning. It makes it really challenging, but also very rewarding,” she says.
Earning a reputation nationwide for her skills and expertise, she has been appointed to prominent leadership roles in litigation related to global chip maker Intel for security flaws and technology giant Apple Inc. for device performance issues. And last year she was appointed to serve on the Plaintiffs Executive Committee overseeing the nationwide class action litigation related to the massive data breaches revealed by Yahoo Inc. and is the only California attorney to serve on that committee. Additionally, she currently serves as co-liaison counsel for the Incretin Mimetic products liability cases pending in the multidistrict litigation in the Southern District of California.
Active in the community as well as professionally, she serves on the board of trustees for California Western School of Law and is on executive committee of the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center. She also serves on the boards of the San Diego County Bar Association Foundation and the Tom Homann Law Association Foundation.
