Jason Kairalla handles financial services litigation, commercial disputes, and issues of First Amendment and intellectual property law before trial and appellate courts across the country. He recognizes that effective advocacy requires an understanding of the clients’ business and the unique industry issues they face. For this reason, Jason has augmented his legal knowledge with significant business education and experience, including study and practice in finance, management, and information technology. This combination results in legal strategies that address business realities.
Jason has found that technological innovations can help with early case assessment, reduce litigation expense, and improve the quality (and consistency) of legal outcomes in complex individual and class-action cases. He employs computer-aided project management techniques, technology-assisted review tools, and client-focused case management platforms to deliver value to clients and transform the lawyer-client relationship. In addition to his work for the firm, he is committed to representing abused and neglected children in dependency proceedings. He also advocates for type 1 diabetes research and education.
