About
My practice over the past five years has built upon experiences in both public service and private practice. As a law clerk I managed the Justice's cases in high profile appellate litigations, both civil and criminal. I directed that experience to my practice at Munger, Tolles & Olson, where I prosecuted and defended civil litigations in numerous industries, ranging from complex commercial contracts to entertainment, financial services, securities, internal investigations, and state bar proceedings. My practice now synthesizes these experiences to guide my clients all the way from the onset of commercial disputes through the briefing,… read more discovery, settlement, and appeal when necessary.

"After my company encountered a difficult lessor for our office, Nick stepped in to help us understand our contract and our rights. He quickly took action and built a strategy for us, walking us through every step in the process, as well as laying out our options. We will certainly use Nick again if we encounter any more difficult business partners in the future."

"Nick managed a dispute between our company and the lessor for our office, who wanted to charge excessive rent and fees. Nick quickly dove into our contract, educated us on our options, and drafted a compelling demand letter to resolve the dispute, to great success. I will be sure to call Nick if my company encounters another difficult business partner."

Work History

Munger Tolles

Associate

Dec 2016 - Aug 2019

As an associate at a top litigation boutique, I drafted briefs, motions, discovery demands, writs, and oppositions to class certification in a broad range of industries before state and federal trial courts, appellate courts, and the California State Bar. I also directed large e-discovery projects for both in response to discovery demands and for the purpose of deposition and trial preparation.

Dec 2016 - Aug 2019

The Supreme Court of California

Staff Attorney

Aug 2015 - Aug 2016

As a clerk for Justice Goodwin Liu, I drafted opinions assigned to the Justice, marshaled support for draft opinions through collaboration with other Justices' chambers, and shepherded draft opinions to publication. I also researched and analyzed draft opinions circulated by other Justices' Chambers, drafted memoranda recommending revisions, and proposed votes on those opinions.
