Complex litigation regularly involves intensive pre-trial litigation and discovery, thousands of documents, huge repositories of electronically-stored information (ESI), multi-district litigation (MDL), and multi-million dollar damages. Multi-week trial support and an ability to excel under intense litigation pressures and media scrutiny are often needed to aggressively represent clients and protect their reputations and interests.

To help clients face these significant legal challenges, the firm has created a new Complex Litigation practice group. Members have over 300 years of combined experience handling matters involving intellectual property and trade secrets, business and accounting fraud, securities fraud, attorney malpractice, class actions, healthcare, transactional and M&A, international matters under the North American Free Trade Agreement, real estate and environmental disputes, and major construction defect disputes.

“Our Complex Litigation attorneys have solid, well-defined track records handling high-stakes, high-pressure lawsuits,” said John Klinedinst, CEO of Klinedinst PC. “The rollout of our Complex Litigation group, fresh on the heels of our expanded transactional practice, will help us represent larger, more sophisticated clients in the most complicated, multi-dimensional matters.”

The group is designed to be nimble, responsive and effective. Team leaders can identify and act on immediate priorities, assemble the right attorneys and necessary resources to pursue the claim, and coordinate the overall response across the firm's four California offices. The Complex Litigation unit also includes pre-qualified associates whose experience in specific types of complex matters can be rapidly utilized on short notice.

“More and more, we are seeing these intense cases involving layers of complicated issues, the need to respond or seek relief immediately to protect the client, significant case management and discovery challenges, and 'bet the business' damages,” added James D. Crosby, the San Diego-based Shareholder who has been selected to chair the group. “These cases, and the risks and challenges they present, can be daunting for clients of any size. Thanks to the unparalleled experience of our group's members, our Complex Litigation team can create and tailor a plan to handle any complex matter efficiently and effectively.”

The group had a soft launch this past summer to gauge client interest and to identify the needs of clients in these types of matters. “The feedback we received to having this type of tactical, response-focused team was tremendous,” added Klinedinst. “But, more importantly, we listened to what our clients were looking for in terms of rapid-response, comprehensive legal counsel. Under Jim's leadership, we are very pleased to be formally rolling out the Complex Litigation group statewide to our clients.”
