I am an appellate and trial litigator with a richly diversified perspective, including more than seven years of practice developing and successfully implementing legal strategy on wide-ranging subjects in high stakes environments, often with a view toward long-term appellate strategy.  Major practice areas include appellate and constitutional law, civil and criminal securities litigation, including shareholder derivative actions, consumer class actions, intellectual property, and privacy issues. 
I am particularly interested in a government or in house role in which I will be able to use the significant litigation experience I have developed to tackle interesting legal challenges.  Ideally, this would involve opportunities to take ownership of and supervise litigation efforts, including at the appellate level, though I am also interested in discussing positions that might involve intellectual property or privacy issues outside the litigation arena.  
I represent clients in a variety of complex litigation matters in both state and federal court.  Representative matters include:- Securing the first-ever dismissal with prejudice of claims regarding an “all natural” statement on a food or beverage under California’s consumer protection statutes in Hairston v. South Beach Beverage Co. Inc., et al.- Winning dismissal, with prejudice, of wrongful death claims brought against a prominent Southern California university, and successfully defending the trial court’s dismissal in the California Court of Appeal.- Winning complete victories for a leading retailer and its directors and officers in landmark shareholder class and derivative litigation in state and federal courts, including on appeal in the Eighth Circuit and the Delaware Supreme Court.- Counseling a leading natural resources company as to possible options for challenging a state ballot initiative.

EMPLOYMENT COUNSELING.  Employment counseling to local, national, and multi-national corporations on issues pertaining to hiring, exempt  and contractor classifications, performance management, wage and hour law, leaves, and terminations.  I also prepare employee handbooks, executive employment agreements, WARN Act notices, non-disclosure agreements, among other HR/Personnel records.  I have also assisted corporations in developing and registering work rules in countries in Latin America.AUDITS, INVESTIGATIONS AND TRAINING.  Wage audits, workplace investigations, and workplace trainings (English and Spanish) on topics pertaining to sexual harassment prevention, employment law training, and administering leaves of absence.EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION.  I handle a variety of employment cases such as: (1) California and national wage and hour class action - including MDL litigation; (2) discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims filed pursuant to Title VII or California FEHA; (3) whistleblower claims; (4) restrictive covenant litigation (non-compete matters, non-solicitation matters, and claims for misappropriation of trade secrets); (5) OSHA/Cal OSHA appeals and arbitrations; (6) California DLSE Wage Disputes; (7) EEOC and DFEH investigations and mediations; (8) Private Mediations and Arbitrations; and (9) Civil Appeals before the California Courts of Appeal and the Ninth Circuit.
My desired area of practice is labor, employment and business law because I have devoted 15 years, my entire legal career, to serving as outside counsel to corporations on matters involving traditional labor law, employment law and general business matters.  I would like to continue to utilize the skills that I have developed for promptly and cost-effectively resolving disputes, ensuring legal compliance, brokering deals, and utilizing risk management tools as in-house/corporate counsel.
