Lesley represents public entities, consumers, and private businesses in antitrust, securities and consumer litigation, primarily class actions or opt out matters. She has been appointed to leadership positions in some of the country’s largest and most significant MDL class cases in recent years.

Lesley holds degrees from Harvard College and the University of Virginia Law School. She has studied at the University of Bonn, and was a Rotary exchange student at Haderslev Katedralskole.
