Her national practice includes litigation at the trial and appellate levels in both federal and state courts in addition to U.S.-based and international arbitration.

Recently, Ms. Libeu has served as lead or co-lead counsel in numerous high-profile litigations, including representing Amazon in a suit brought by eBay, alleging fraud, tortious interference, and unfair competition; representing the nation’s largest industrial staffing company in arbitration against a former CEO who, after twice entering into noncompete and non-solicitation agreements with the company, secretly founded a competing business; and representing a global quick-service restaurant corporation against a former executive accused of misappropriating trade secrets before departing for a competitor.
