Hueston Hennigan announced today that Padraic Foran has been promoted to Of Counsel, effective January 1, 2019.
“Pad is a valuable member of our team,” said managing partner Brian Hennigan. “ We are excited to see him take on more senior leadership and work closely with clients to resolve disputes and achieve favorable resolutions.”
A creative and forceful litigator, Padraic Foran focuses on complex civil litigation—primarily fraud, trade secret, and professional liability matters—in California and across the country in a broad range of industries. Mr. Foran brings an abundance of courtroom experience and insight to every case, developing innovative approaches and case strategies designed to achieve clearly articulated goals.
Mr. Foran was a key member of the trial team that helped strike down a land use ordinance, passed by Malibu voters, that The New York Times described as “one of the most stringent anti-development measures ever attempted in the country.” The victory was affirmed by the California Court of Appeal in a unanimous decision hailed by the Daily Journal as “a major appellate win in a high-profile legal and political battle.”
Mr. Foran earned his J.D. from the University of Southern California Law School, where he was elected to the Order of the Coif. He earned his undergraduate degree in English from the University of Southern California.
