Launey Named to Daily Journal’s 2016 List of “Top Labor & Employment Attorneys”


Kristina Launey, Labor & Employment partner and Managing Partner of Seyfarth’s Sacramento office, was named one of the top lawyers in her field by the Daily Journal.

The Daily Journal detailed Launey’s role as co-lead of the firm’s Americans with Disabilities Act Title III team and, specifically, her experience in matters surrounding website accessibility under Title II of the ADA. A current focus by plaintiffs is on claims that business defendants violate the disability act by hosting non-compliant sites on the internet, Launey said.

“Even though the ADA doesn’t mention websites anywhere, over the past couple of years we have seen very large increase in enforcement actions by the U.S. Department of Justice and advocacy groups…,” Launey told the Daily Journal.
