Our practice is devoted solely to trial and litigation in the areas of intellectual property, complex business and commercial disputes, and class action defense. With over thirty attorneys across three offices in California (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orange County), we serve global clients with their most complex matters throughout the country.
Our professional and academic credentials are second to none.

We are privileged to serve successful entrepreneurs and businesses as well as recognized industry leaders.

Our attorneys have been honored as among the “Top 20” in California, “Best Lawyers...in America” and “Super Lawyers” by leading legal publications and organizations. Clients and opposing counsel have referred to us as “the finest trial lawyers in the country,” “outstanding, tenacious, and cost effective,” and “creative.”
