Ms. Blanche is a seasoned litigator and skilled client counselor who works side by side with clients to navigate complex advertising and regulatory matters, along with bet-the-company litigation. As the co-lead of Commercial Litigation and chair of the Consumer Products and Beauty and Wellness practices at her prior firm, she has represented top manufacturers and distributors of food and beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other equipment in false advertising, unfair competition, or other fraud-based claims, as well as product liability litigation, including under California’s Proposition 65.

Stacie Tobin, a co-chair of the firm’s Litigation Division, commented, “Caitlin is a talented and well-connected litigator. We are looking forward to benefiting from her extensive experience and network to expand our portfolio of clients and service offerings.”

“I am thrilled to be joining a firm that has a deep bench of offerings in the areas that matter most to my clients,” Ms. Blanche said, commenting on her move to Venable. “Partnering with subject-matter experts and leveraging other unique firm offerings will not just help me bring in new clients, but will allow me to provide even better service to existing ones.”
