Luci focuses her practice on complex business litigation and employment litigation and policy. Her experience extends to all phases of litigation, ranging from pre-trial counseling through trial. Luci’s work spans diverse subject matter including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty related to trust administration, enterprise software implementations, insurance coverage and contracts, restrictive covenants and trade secrets, and employment-related issues, including harassment and discrimination claims and class action wage-and-hour matters. She also has experience defending a variety of website privacy matters related to session replay and pixel technology. Luci represents a variety of clients, including Fortune 500 companies, throughout the country, including in California and New York. 

Luci’s Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and her Juris Doctor from New York Law School have given her the ideal education to excel in her practice in business litigation. In addition, Luci received a head start in real-world business legal issues working as a legal assistant as an undergraduate for Cerner Corporation, a supplier of health information technology services, devices and hardware. There she assisted the company’s litigation and employment team with eDiscovery, document production and legal hold processes; reviewed government policies and procedures; created standardized, procedural documentation to comply with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO); and gained invaluable training in depositions, mediation, California employment laws and drafting business contracts with outside counsel. Luci’s time on her law school’s Dispute Resolution Team and winning turn in the Judith Kaye Arbitration Competition honed her natural skills to master negotiation, mediation and arbitration techniques, which are at her disposal when her clients seek winning outcomes in litigation alternatives.
