At MoFo, litigation is practiced as a team sport. My colleagues and clients are what make my job exciting and fun—they are the reason I have a sense of urgency and a quick step as I head to work in the morning.

Caitlin Sinclaire Blythe is the Managing Partner of the San Francisco office. Caitlin is a member of the firm’s Litigation, Trials + Appeals Department where her practice focuses on investigations, white-collar defense, and commercial and consumer litigation.

Caitlin also represents corporations and individuals in class actions and other commercial and consumer litigation matters, and has experience litigating cases in federal and state courts, and before arbitration tribunals, throughout the country

  • A verdict favoring a family in a federal jury trial involving an unlawful search of their home
  • A favorable ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal on behalf of an inmate asserting a civil rights claim
