  • Casie Collignon, JD, Partner, Baker Hostetler LLP, Denver, CO

    Casie Collignon is a partner in the Denver office of the national law firm of Baker & Hostetler LLP. Named a 2016 "Colorado Lawyer of the Year" by Law Week Colorado, Casie has achieved significant accomplishments in class action litigation, thereby limiting exposure and business risks for her clients. Casie views class action defense with professional maturity, from a business perspective first and a litigation perspective second, taking whatever avenue is most advantageous to get the results her clients desire. While zealous representation is often accompanied by aggressive legal strategy, she also believes there is a time and place for cooperation in most litigation contexts. This approach has led to substantive and economic rewards for her clients. In the data privacy area, Casie assists clients with their most complex issues, including data breach and other privacy-related class actions. She is often sought out to represent healthcare companies, businesses with substantial online services and business in the social media space. With little precedent for certification in such cases, class actions are particularly challenging because damages are pursued based on statutory penalties with no individual damage requirements. Casie's practice also includes complex business litigation experience, involving litigation surrounding the insurance, consumer, financial services and oil and gas industries. In this respect, Casie works closely with her clients to understand the history, context and practicalities underlying any given dispute. It is her experience that these intangibles are just as important as the legal precedent in any litigation involving these industries. Casie is the group leader for the Denver Litigation Group, as well as the hiring partner for the Denver office.
