Who We Are

Our firm focuses on winning trials and training trial lawyers. With attorneys drawn from the most selective law schools and clerkships in the country, we have been called "A National Powerhouse." Our associates handle advanced roles on groundbreaking and high-impact public cases and are compensated above the national market. Our unparalleled training program emphasizes mastery of courtroom advocacy skills, with all new associates completing a trial within their first two years.

Based in Southern California and practicing nationwide, our more than 40 lawyers hail from top schools including Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Chicago, Columbia, NYU, Michigan, UVA, Northwestern, Cornell, Texas, Georgetown, UCLA and USC. Many are veterans of prominent national law firms such as Wachtell Lipton, Williams & Connolly, Cravath, Davis Polk, Munger Tolles, Cleary Gottlieb, Gibson Dunn, and Irell & Manella. Three of our partners served as assistant U.S. attorneys - two in the Central District of California and one in the Southern District of New York.

Ninety-three percent of the associates who joined the firm in the last two years came from judicial clerkships, including for judges of the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Third, Fifth, Ninth, Eleventh, and Federal Circuits, and the U.S. District Courts for the Central District of California, Southern District of New York, Western District of Washington, District of Arizona, and Eastern District of Louisiana.

We are entrepreneurs and counsel associates in the business of law.

Together, we are a lean, diverse, collegial trial law firm that has become go-to counsel for clients such as Tesla, SpaceX, Amazon, Walt Disney, Activision, Electronic Arts, T-Mobile, the Navajo Nation, and many others.
