Breeanna handles matters at every stage of litigation, from pre-trial motions and depositions to jury trials. She has extensive experience serving as second and third trial chair on behalf of prominent Fortune 500 companies and celebrity clients.

Breeanna’s practice focuses on complex commercial, real estate, entertainment, and intellectual property litigation in state and federal courts.

Breeanna has in-depth experience drafting pleadings and motions, from complaints to post-trial motions, including motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, discovery motions, pre-trial motions, and trial briefs.

Breeanna recently served as second chair and third chair during two California state jury trials, where she represented a prominent automobile manufacturer in cases involving allegations of fraud.

Breeanna also served as third chair in a prominent jury trial where she represented The Bird Nest, LLC, an entity owned by Katy Perry, in a real estate and contract dispute matter. She helped secure The Bird Nest, LLC’s right to acquire a former convent from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles for redevelopment into a residential compound. Breeanna also helped defeat the claims of a competing buyer and the cancellation of the competing buyer’s recorded deed and other clouds on title, as well as secured a verdict of $15 million against the competing buyer.

The following is a representative sample of Breeanna’s casework:

  • AbbVie Endocrine, Inc. v. Takeda Pharmaceutical Company. As a member of a 100%-diverse trial team in “one of the five big healthcare lawsuits” of the year, secured a favorable ruling on behalf of AbbVie Endocrine, Inc. in a high-stakes breach of contract case against Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. Breeanna assisted in developing questioning and defense of multiple expert and percipient witnesses during the trial in Delaware Chancery Court, and in phase two, Breeanna assisted in orchestrating the damages strategy resulting in a $448 million judgment. Pre- and post-judgement interest were set by stipulated judgment, in which Takeda waived its right to appeal.
  • All Plastic, Inc. v. SamDan LLC, et al. On behalf of All Plastic, Inc., brought a patent infringement lawsuit in the District Court of Colorado, where based upon arguments presented during the Markman hearing and the underlying briefing, the court adopted substantially all of the firm’s proposed constructions for seven contested terms of eight patent claims, which placed our client in an extremely advantageous position for a successful settlement obtained just days before trial.
  • Bird Nest, LLC v. Competing Buyer. Secured the right to acquire a former convent from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles for redevelopment into a residential compound and, in the process, defeated the claims of a competing buyer (hotel developer).

  • Global Software Corporation v. Former Executive. Represented and successfully defended high-level software engineering executive against wide-ranging allegations of trade secret misappropriation and breach of a confidentiality agreement brought by a global software giant when he left for a competitor start-up. After a pre-litigation remediation overseen by a third-party neutral, all allegations were dropped and settled on favorable terms to the client.
  • Individual Users v. Social Media Company. Aided in motion practice in trial court on behalf of a social media company in Section 230 cases.
