Jeanne M. Christensen

Jeanne M. Christensen is one of the most prominent female attorneys within the field of employment litigation, having represented thousands of plaintiffs in federal and state workplace disputes including, but not limited to, sexual harassment, discrimination on the basis of gender, race, age, pregnancy, disability, LGBT+ status and/or religion, whistleblower retaliation, defamation and wage and hour violations.

Her reputation includes representing female plaintiffs in some of the most widely- publicized cases involving sexual harassment, unequal pay, and gender and pregnancy discrimination in recent years. She is also an active member of the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund’s attorney network, the National Association of Consumer Advocates and Public Justice.

Currently, she represents survivors of sexual assault by Uber drivers in a proposed class action against Uber, as well as the plaintiff in a lawsuit alleging systemic gender discrimination and unequal pay at Point72 Asset Management, which was lauded by The New York Times as “among the most prominent to accuse a major Wall Street firm of workplace misconduct amid a national reckoning on sexual harassment.”
