A founding partner of Dunn DeSantis Walt & Kendrick, Beth Dunn brings over 30 years of experience as a seasoned counselor and litigator to the firm’s individual and business clients. Beth’s practice focuses on complex business litigation with an emphasis on employment litigation, advisement and risk management. She regularly handles a wide range of business and employment matters including the defense of single plaintiff and class action wage and hour and consumer claims, as well as disputes involving fraud, contract, wrongful termination, trade secret theft, unfair business practices, whistle blower, union labor matters, discrimination, harassment and related claims. She has extensive experience representing clients in state and federal court and in proceedings before various federal administrative agencies and state agencies throughout the country.
Beth regularly counsels clients of all sizes who do business in California concerning compliance with federal and California’s ever-evolving – and often inconsistent – labor laws and regulations. Her experience encompasses handling issues specific to both private and public entities including the interpretation and application of governing statutes and regulations related to public agencies, the handling of pre-litigation and litigation matters, and the development of risk management strategies and solutions.
Beth’s clients include non-profit organizations as well as businesses in the sports, real estate, manufacturing, healthcare, education, technology, communication, law enforcement, hospitality, financial, building, transportation and professional service industries.
Also committed to community service outside of the legal profession, Beth has furthered her passion for sports and her belief that sports can positively impact today’s youth by her long standing service as an officer and outside general counsel for the San Diego Hall of Champions and the San Diego Sports Commission. She also volunteers her time to promote San Diego as a venue for wide-scale sporting events such as the U.S. Open, Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, The Federation Cup, The Breeders Cup, and various adult and youth tournaments.
