January 23, 2019

Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP is pleased to announce that partner Elizabeth (Liz) A. Frohlich has joined the firm’s Business Trial practice group in San Francisco. She was most recently a partner at Morgan Lewis. Frohlich represents banks and securities broker-dealers in complex, high-stakes civil and criminal actions in federal and state courts and arbitrations and is particularly experienced with litigation involving asset-backed securities.

“Liz’s significant work in securitization litigation perfectly complements our very strong securitization transactional practice,” said Sascha Henry, Co-Practice Group Leader of the firm’s Business Trial Practice. “Her two decades of representing some of the leading financial services companies in their most critical matters gives her an incredible wealth of experience to draw upon.”

Commenting on the firm’s growth, Robert Beall, Sheppard Mullin’s co-managing partner, said, “We continue to focus on expanding our footprint in northern California and the addition of Liz is a great way to start out 2019. Three partners joined us in the Bay Area over the last year and we hope to continue to add more outstanding talent this year.”

In addition to her securitization litigation work, some of the types of complex matters she handles for clients include investor cases, trust instruction proceedings, National Fair Housing Act cases, actions by municipalities, and County Recorder/MERS (Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems) actions. Frohlich also often provides clients with advice concerning legal strategy pre-litigation, as well as post-litigation consulting. She received her B.A. from the University of Puget Sound and her J.D. from Boston University School of Law.

Sheppard Mullin has more than 90 attorneys in San Francisco and the firm’s Business Trial practice group includes more than 160 attorneys firmwide.
