Gordon & Rees is one of the largest law firms in San Diego County, with more than 125 attorneys providing clients a full-service range of representation. Our San Diego attorneys represent corporate clients, officers and directors in all types of litigation and business transactions, including "bet the company" trials and handling their most important transactional and counseling matters. Our clients range from Fortune 500 companies, to biotechnology start-ups, to medium sized businesses at the core of the local economy.  San Diego attorneys cover every practice discipline and industry group at the firm.

In litigated disputes, we are a recognized leader in handling complex trials, class actions, appeals and arbitrations. We have prevailed in separate multi-month long trials for one of the nation's largest cities in a waterfront property dispute, and for a manufacturing client wrongfully accused of ground water contamination. We successfully tried a string of intellectual property cases throughout California on issues ranging from alleged patent and trademark infringement to licensing agreement violations. We have obtained multiple defense verdicts at trial for our employer clients accused of wrongful termination, have favorably resolved class action and complex commercial litigation cases for dozens of clients, and regularly handle successful appeals.  We recently tried the first ever jury trial involving allegations of exposure to asbestos dust from the operation of an arc grinding machine used to prepare drum brake linings for installation, to a favorable verdict for the client.  Our trial attorneys regularly handle cases addressing cutting-edge legal developments.

Our San Diego corporate attorneys have a similar depth of experience, counseling publicly traded and private clients in mergers, acquisitions and financings, and advising boards of directors on governance issues. Our real estate attorneys, who represent the majority of the commercial property owners in San Diego, have advised clients on hundreds of millions of dollars in transactions over the last 10 years, including the acquisition of Downtown office towers. We also serve as employment and labor counsel for many of the region's leading employers, advising them on avoiding the many pitfalls in dealing with difficult human resource issues, and defending them from wage and hour claims, as well as claims of discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination.

Our San Diego office also provides clients with attorneys who have unique insight from various in-house positions they held prior to entering the private practice of law, including Deputy District Attorneys, General Counsel of a real estate development firm, General Counsel of a U.S.-owned/Hong Kong-headquartered toy company, and an in-house litigation attorney for a public utility, as well as a former OSHA compliance officer, investigator for the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, and mediator for the EEOC.

San Diego attorneys provide significant pro bono services to a variety of local charitable organizations. Attorneys in the San Diego office donate their time to a wide range of pro bono matters, handling cases referred by such organizations as the Court Appointed Special Advocate Association, Legal Aid Society of San Diego, and Casa Cornelia Law Center.
