Willenken is pleased to announce that David Harris has joined the firm as Of Counsel. With nearly fifteen years of experience, David focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, including intellectual property, class action defense, and antitrust matters in state and federal courts and arbitrations.
David is an accomplished lawyer who has earned a reputation for presenting complicated legal and factual issues in a concise and easy-to-understand manner. He has an extraordinary track record of winning “on the papers.” For example, he helped secure a complete defense victory in a federal antitrust case by showing on summary judgment that the plaintiff had not suffered antitrust injury or damages; helped win an “unwinnable” personal injury case on summary judgment based on the little-known “completed and accepted” doctrine; and litigated a malicious prosecution case until the defendants gave up and stipulated to judgment.
In addition to working with Willenken as Of Counsel, David also maintains and runs his own boutique litigation firm (David S. Harris, P.C.), which he founded in early 2022. Before that, David honed his practice at law firms in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. He began his legal career as a law clerk for Chief Justice Dana Fabe of the Alaska Supreme Court.
“I am excited to work with Willenken’s team of award-winning trial and litigation lawyers. I look forward to leveraging my own knowledge and experience to help further expand Willenken’s capabilities to serve clients across a diverse range of industries in high-stakes complex commercial litigation.”David Harris, Of Counsel
“We are very pleased to welcome David to the firm. With David’s arrival, we further boost Willenken’s talented group of results-driven lawyers who possess the proven dedication, ingenuity, and experience to achieve winning results for our clients. We are delighted to work with David.”Paul Loh, Managing Partner
