Bethany Biesenthal is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, a Chambers-rated litigator, and a former federal prosecutor. She has served as a lead trial lawyer in more than 20 trials and has argued more than a dozen federal circuit appeals. Bethany has successfully led litigation teams in high-stakes matters, including litigation brought by attorneys general and defending against allegations of corporate misconduct. Bethany calls on her experience as head of the Human Trafficking section at the U.S. Attorney's Office to now serve as Jones Day's lead for global human trafficking-related litigation and regularly speaks on issues of human trafficking in corporate supply chains.
Jones Day's distinctive approach of uniting its pro bono representations with its community service initiatives extends the scope and impact of our work far beyond the individual cases we handle. Our lawyers represent individual clients pro bono in important litigation, and our community initiatives bring all of the Firm's assets to the table, including our ability to convene industry and community leaders, non-governmental organizations ("NGOs"), the legal community, and government policymakers around solution-oriented rule of law initiatives. Our Anti-Human Trafficking Initiative is one example of this integrated approach.
