James Nicholson, et al., which at the time, was the largest class action in the data privacy area with over 28,000,000 members.

Ashley regularly publishes blog articles, podcasts and conducts in-house training for legal and human resource professionals on a variety of topics. Ashley is also actively involved in raising the profile of women in her own firm, in the legal community and in her local community. Ashley is the former Chair of the Ogletree Deakins Women’s Initiative (ODWIN) and remains on the steering committee.
