Los Angeles Business Journal

18 Apr 2022

The Los Angeles Business Journal has named Purvi G. Patel, the managing partner of Morrison & Foerster’s Los Angeles office, among its 2022 “Women of Influence: Attorneys.” The award recognizes attorneys for their exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for their contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.

Purvi has built a robust practice advising household-name companies on various compliance issues and defending them in complex and class action litigation in federal and state courts across the country. With a defined niche that cuts across MoFo’s Class Actions + Mass Torts and Privacy + Data Security Groups, she operates effectively at the intersection of privacy, consumer products and services, and emerging technology. Purvi has notched significant victories for clients, including defeating class certification and securing summary judgment in some of the most plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions nationwide, and securing several walkaways for industry-leading companies in high-stakes cases involving multi-million dollar demands.

For over five years, Purvi co-chaired the firm’s Diversity Strategy Committee, and remains an active member of the Committee. During her tenure, among other successes, the firm achieved Mansfield Certification Plus four times, implemented a LGBTQ+ Gender Inclusive Policy, and launched MoFo’s innovative Allies Network. In 2019, Purvi was a founding board member of Legal Education Access Pipeline, a fellows program dedicated to increasing access to legal education for underrepresented populations, and is currently the President of its Board of Directors. Purvi is also a past co-president of the South Asian Bar Association of Southern California (SABA-SC) and, was named SABA-SC’s 2019 Mentor of the Year.
