As a former federal prosecutor, big-city attorney and general counsel, law professor, and large-firm litigator in both Los Angeles and Cleveland, Subodh Chandra is able to draw on experiences that few lawyers have had in combination. That experience, along with the strong legal-research, case organization, and persuasion and advocacy skills of the rest of the firm (all large-firm alumni), and the international network of lawyers of which the firm is a part, have led to tremendous results for clients when everything---liberty, property, or reputation--was on the line.

Our firm focuses on high-profile criminal and civil trial and appellate litigation including advocacy in civil-rights (e.g., employment discrimination and retaliation; First Amendment, voting rights, and police misconduct), whistle-blower actions including the federal False Claims Act, white-collar criminal defense (such as healthcare fraud, mortgage fraud, telecommunications fraud, and public corruption), insurance-coverage disputes, and business disputes, in both federal and state courts. We also perform internal investigations (including for Fortune 200 companies).

Often, the dilemmas confronting our clients have a crisis-communications, public-policy dimension requiring attorneys who understand how to navigate a challenging media environment, and protect reputations under public scrutiny.

Your case is not just another case to us. It is a cause.
