The Firm has a long history as a powerhouse in high-stakes litigation, representing high-profile clients in significant and complex litigation matters. Patricia L. Glaser, who is widely recognized as one of the top trial lawyers in California and the nation, chairs the Firm's Litigation Department. Fiercely dedicated to clients, Ms. Glaser heads a team of well-trained, seasoned litigators from a variety of backgrounds who bring a depth of experience and who share a common passion for what they do. While many law firms boast a litigation department comprised of "trial lawyers," what sets Glaser Weil apart is the fact that its litigators actually try cases, in the courtroom (state and federal,) in arbitrations and before administrative and other governmental tribunals.
The Firm’s reputation for taking cases to trial offers an immediate advantage: the client’s adversary will know that the Firm is willing and able to go the distance. The Firm’s litigators are consistently recognized for innovative legal strategies and tenacious lawyering while taking a careful, well prepared approach in order to produce the optimum results cost-effectively.
A formidable force, the Firm’s Litigation Department regularly attracts high-profile clients facing challenging and exciting legal issues. Frequently, the Firm is retained on the eve of trial by clients looking for the power and experience that can win at trial or otherwise resolve a case that was previously considered by other lawyers to be irrresolvable.
The Firm’s aggressive reputation notwithstanding, Glaser Weil lawyers understand and are sensitive to client concerns about runaway costs and out-of-control lawyering. With this in mind, the Firm is committed to effectively budgeting and controlling costs, working together with clients at the outset to establish an efficient and focused litigation plan. While certain clients do not hesitate to take a case "all the way," other clients prefer to avoid a protracted, expensive and potentially public court room drama. In these circumstances, the Firm has demonstrated an inherent sense of ingenuity and creativity in resolving cases through summary disposition and alternative dispute resolution.
