Over the past 35 years, Ellis George Cipollone O’Brien Annaguey LLP (formerly Browne George Ross O’Brien Annaguey & Ellis LLP) has successfully litigated and tried challenging cases nationwide, securing favorable settlements and substantial sums for clients.
Trial lawyers, first and foremost
We are a firm of seasoned trial lawyers. Our lawyers have tried hundreds of cases successfully to judges and juries nationwide. We have distinguished ourselves in numerous “bet-the-company” cases, multi-billion-dollar disputes, and white-collar criminal trials where our client’s freedom has been at stake. Through our extensive trial work, both fact and law intensive, we know how to advocate in any arena and at any time, and we understand how to counsel a client considering whether to settle or to fight.
Success rooted deep in experience
We provide our clients with access to an exceptional range of knowledge and experience, developed in both private practice and the senior ranks of government. The firm is home to a U.S. Senator and California Governor, Counsel to the President of the United States, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, numerous former senior Department of Justice and White House officials, and five former (or imminent) Supreme Court law clerks. Our unique insight into the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government, as well as administrative agencies, gives us unparalleled advantages in navigating the legal process for our clients.
It’s not just business – it’s personal
We understand what’s at stake for our clients: their reputation, life’s work, time, financial resources, and sometimes even their freedom. Whether Fortune 500 company or individual, plaintiff or defendant, we take client representation personally. We are relentless advocates who are comprehensive and creative in our legal strategies.
From firm leadership to professional staff, we proudly bring our diverse perspectives to the table to customize innovative solutions for our clients. We are inspired by our differences, and we strive to promote equity and inclusion in our firm, in the courtroom, and in our communities.
