Biography

Overview

Erin McNamee is an associate in the Global Antitrust/Competition Practice of White & Case. Erin is a trial-ready lawyer, who has defended some of the world's most influential and innovative technology product and social media companies.

Erin brings an upbeat energy to her client's toughest issues. She leads collaborative and diverse teams to create a way through thorny legal, business, and public relations issues. Erin has experience handling client issues from complaint through final trial verdict and on to appeals, and with a background in theatre; she brings a distinctive set of skills to deposition and trial preparation.

Of particular note, for nearly six years, she was a key member of the team advising Toshiba against global price-fixing cartel allegations in multiple product markets. That representation resulted in the company facing no criminal liability, prevailing in two successful California jury trials, eliminating US$5 billion worth of claims in two of the largest antitrust trials in US history, fine annulments and favorable settlements.

Erin's experience also includes helping clients respond to government investigations and regulatory responses. For example, she assisted a European banking client in response to investigations by American and French regulatory authorities.

Erin is currently handling cross-border matters involving data privacy, defamation, cybersecurity, consumer class action claims, commercial contract disputes, and government investigations. In 2020, Erin was elected to a three-year term on the DC Bar's Antitrust and Consumer Law Community's steering committee.

She also maintains an active pro bono practice focusing on prisoner rights and education, and has received the firm's pro bono award on multiple occasions.
