Women Leaders in Tech Law: Carolyn Luedtke, Rose Ring

Munger, Tolles & Olson attorneys Carolyn Hoecker Luedtke and Rosemarie T. Ring were named to The Recorder’s 2017 list of “Women Leaders in Tech Law” published on July 28, 2017.

Ms. Luedtke and Ms. Ring were recognized among the California-based attorneys who “handled deals that are reshaping the industry, cases that are setting new precedent and navigated what can best be called a murky regulatory environment.”

Ms. Luedtke was recognized for her recent victories on behalf of technology companies, including obtaining for Ten-X a preliminary injunction followed by a settlement and public apology from CREXi, a company founded by former employees accused of stealing trade secrets, and representing Lyft in moving to quash a subpoena served by Uber in the high-profile Waymo-Uber trade secret litigation. She was last ranked as a “Woman Leader in Tech Law” in 2013.

Ms. Ring, who has been named to this list for five consecutive years, was again recognized for her work leading tech companies on cutting-edge issues, which this year included defending Snap in litigation challenging its alleged use of facial scanning technology without user consent; ESPN and LinkedIn against claims based on state and federal privacy and right of publicity laws; and Facebook in two putative nationwide class actions challenging its advertising platform and testing its defenses under the Communications Decency Act.
