Lieff Cabraser partner Douglas Cuthbertson will be a featured speaker at the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA) Spring Training Conference, Class Action Workshop, taking place May 2-3, 2023 in New Orleans. On day two of the pre-conference workshop (5/3), Doug will speak on a panel entitled “Privacy Claims and Data Breaches.”
As the class action landscape is ever-changing, the workshop will address key challenges, such as proving standing and navigating the complexities of arbitration clauses, that remain central to the fight for consumer justice. The workshop will also explore opportunities for federal claims in state courts, mass arbitration filings, and strategies for cases unaffected by arbitration concerns.
This event promises to be an invaluable experience for attorneys looking to deepen their understanding of class action practice and improve their ability to champion consumer rights.

His past and present work includes securities litigation against the Brazilian petroleum corporation Petrobras, a financial fraud action against Morgan Stanley, consumer litigation against Volkswagen, as well as an airline overcharging case against British Airways where he was designated as Class Counsel (Dover v.

Doug has acted in digital privacy litigation against Google, Disney, Viacom, and others, including as co-counsel for the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office and as Class Counsel in McDonald v. Kiloo A/S (and two related actions) on behalf of parents concerning the unlawful collection and use of their children’s personal information from mobile games to track and monetize kids. Leading nonprofit advocates described these settlements as “the biggest change to the children’s app market,” impacting Defendants’ “business models” to prevent children from being “targeted with the most insidious and manipulative forms of marketing.”
