Best Law FirmBest Law Firm 2016

When you face complex business litigation, who would you rather have representing you: an experienced litigation specialist from a firm full of litigation specialists, or a junior attorney at a law firm whose primary focus lies elsewhere?

At Callahan & Blaine, all of our attorneys are experienced world-class litigators. Litigation has been our focus since we started the firm in 1984, and as a result we have a national reputation for aggressively litigating and consistently winning complex multi-million dollar cases. Whether you’re the plaintiff or the defendant, we have the experience and expertise you need.

95% Win Ratio

Over the past 20 years, we’ve won over 95% of our cases through trial or settlement. Whether we’re successfully presenting your case in a courtroom or negotiating an advantageous settlement in a conference room, we play to win.

We’ve secured both the largest verdict in Orange County history – a $934 million jury verdict for Beckman Coulter – and the largest personal injury settlement in U.S. history – a $50 million settlement. We are . . .

Focused – We are a litigation firm. We’ve successfully handled thousands of disputes for a blue-chip client roster that runs the gamut from entrepreneurial mid-market companies to Fortune 1000 corporations.

Experienced – Nearly all of our attorneys have at least 10 years experience, and many have over 20. Callahan & Blaine has no junior associates working on client files. We know what we’re doing, and our expertise translates into powerful results for you.

Aggressive – We’ll leave no stone unturned in preparing and litigating your case. Whether we’re identifying issues and tactics, finding evidence, preparing motions or cross-examining witnesses, our approach is persistent, thorough and relentless. We call it Our Will To Win.

Callahan & Blaine’s business litigation practice is chaired by our managing principal, Daniel J. Callahan, one of America’s preeminent litigators. Mr. Callahan and the 20+ senior attorneys who practice with him have successfully litigated a wide array of complex business litigation cases from both the plaintiff and defendant perspectives, including: breach of contract, fraud, breach of warranty, product defect cases, partnership or shareholder disputes, unfair business practices, intellectual property litigation, directors and officers disputes, defamation, and more.
