Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani has launched the Northern California Trial Practice Group which includes some of the firm's most seasoned trial attorneys. The Northern California Trial Practice will complement the firm’s already existing National Trial Practice Group, which includes practitioners from across the country who have collectively tried more than 1,000 cases to verdict. This elite trial team of partners from a variety of practice areas is able to handle a broad range of matters from bet-the-company cases to simple arbitrations.
With more than 20 years of trial experience and a partner of the firm's Employment and National Trial Practice Groups, Mike Laurenson will be the leader of the Northern California Trial Practice Group. Laurenson is one of nine attorneys in the firm's National Trial Practice Group who have been recognized for their achievements with admission into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and other prestigious organizations and who have received numerous awards from both peer and industry organizations.
"By forming the Northern California Trial Practice Group, our firm is able to offer a team of top flight trial attorneys who can collaborate and handle a wide range of cases that cross many areas of the law," said Laurenson. "Our team is known for confidently taking on cases headed for or on the eve of trial and prevailing in some of the most challenging matters."
