Electric Scooter Advisor

Santa Monica-Based Attorney, Catherine Lerer, Offers Insight Across the Globe

In September of 2017, Bird Rides Inc. introduced shared electric scooters to Santa Monica, CA. Since then, our firm has done a deep dive into understanding how and why e-scooter accidents occur.

Past Work as a Municipal Advisor

As e-scooter sharing expands to other cities, our founding attorney, Catherine Lerer, has advised representatives in cities across the United States and internationally. Ms. Lerer has consulted with mayors, vice mayors, city managers, city councilmen, transportation managers, safety policy advisors, city attorneys, city planning commissioners, city project managers, ministers of transportation, and other professionals. So far, she has worked with the following locations:

The United States

  • Mesa, AZ
  • San Diego, CA
  • Aspen, CO
  • Fort Collins, CO
  • Vienna, VA
  • Tacoma, WA


  • Brussels, Belgium

In addition to her work with Belgium, Ms. Lerer served as a presenter for the European Road Safety Charter in its webinar, “E-Scooters, Road Safety Issues and Regulations,” which took place on October 22, 2019.


  • Ontario, Toronto

Services Provided

As an e-scooter consultant, Ms. Lerer can address the following issues:

  • An explanation of why e-scooters are dangerous
  • An explanation of a city’s potential liability
  • Suggested electric scooter regulations

The purpose of these consultations is to protect the quality of life for citizens, hold scooter operators accountable, and ensure the highest level of public safety. With pre-established scooter regulations, a city will be better equipped to respond to an e-scooter rollout.

If an electric scooter rollout is headed towards your city, contact Catherine Lerer at (310) 692-9582.

Catherine’s Mission

Ms. Lerer herself wrote:

My goal is to assist in leveling the playing field between cities and the scooter companies by sharing what my law firm has learned about scooter accidents and injuries.”
