Ting was a member of the trial team that obtained a $350 million settlement on the eve of trial in Smilovits v. First Solar, Inc., the fifth-largest PSLRA settlement ever recovered in the Ninth Circuit. She was also a member of the Firm’s trial team in Hsu v. Puma Biotechnology, Inc., a securities fraud class action that resulted in a verdict in favor of investors after a two-week jury trial. Ting has been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine for 2023. Prior to joining the Firm, Ting served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Anthony J. Battaglia of the Southern District of California for two years.
