He has led the defense of class claims arising out of negative option advertising and automatic renewal of online subscriptions, product labeling, claims under Section 17200 of California's Business & Professions Code (UCL), and claims under California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA).

Rounding out his substantial class action practice, John defends corporations being investigated by state attorney general and federal regulators arising out of data breaches, and he regularly advises clients on their cybersecurity and consumer privacy obligations, including data breach response.

John has briefed and argued dozens of appeals before U.S. federal courts and has led trial teams in domestic and international arbitration.
