Elizabeth S. Fenton

Beth Fenton is a commercial litigator who focuses her practice on cases involving business torts, joint venture dissolutions and corporate governance disputes.

Her experience litigating the boundaries of corporate and LLC limited liability has made Beth a sought-out writer and speaker on piercing the corporate and LLC veils and the doctrine’s interplay with the fiduciary duties of officers, directors and members. She also counsels clients regarding business strategy and compliance with respect to creation of special or single purpose entities.

Beth represents businesses of all sizes before federal and state courts as well as government agencies such as the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and the Federal Trade Commission. She has experience and knowledge handling issues arising under the Sherman Act, the False Claims Act, the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and fair lending issues under a number of different state and federal statutes such as the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, and the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law. She has significant experience in the area of electronic discovery as she has used legal project management tools to oversee large document reviews, monitor document preservation and litigation holds, and resolve cross-border e-discovery issues. In addition, Beth has assisted emerging companies, private businesses and nonprofit entities with governance and transactions in the United States and internationally.

Previously, Beth was a partner in the Wilmington, Delaware and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania offices of Reed Smith where she led the commercial litigation group in Wilmington.
