Natasha Menell helps clients successfully resolve complex commercial disputes while tenaciously protecting their rights and interests.
Investment funds, construction firms, biotechnology and biochemical companies, and other public and private companies call on Natasha to navigate their complex commercial litigation issues in federal and state courts and before arbitral bodies. She handles antitrust and competition, construction and financial disputes, and bankruptcy, negligence, trade secrets, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and white-collar litigation. She has significant experience handling regulatory inquiries and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Dodd-Frank Act investigations brought by the Department of Justice and other federal regulatory bodies. Natasha also is accomplished in alternative dispute resolution options and proceedings.
Thoughtful, well-researched, practical and incisive in strategy development, Natasha works tirelessly, guiding clients through difficult issues smoothly and professionally. In addition, her background in economics, financial regulation, and monetary policy makes her well-positioned to deal with any facets of economics, risk, marketing, and damages analyses that arise in commercial disputes.
