Lafayette & Kumagai

Called a “Big Gun” and “High Profile” by the San Francisco Chronicle and the Recorder, and a “Top Law Firm” by the National Law Journal, Lafayette & Kumagai LLP is a minority-owned boutique litigation firm that specializes in business torts, employment, complex litigation and trials.  The twenty year old firm has earned a reputation for excellence and for providing strong advocacy.  Alameda City Manager (and former Oakland City Attorney) John Russo noted to the Recorder, “… political players involved in a case may dictate which firm is chosen.  Mayor (and California Governor) Jerry Brown, for example, likes to use San Francisco’s Lafayette & Kumagai.”

Headed by a core of seasoned litigators, the firm has handled a number of high-profile and high-exposure cases on behalf of institutional and public entity clients and is frequently contacted to take over cases from other firms, particularly cases that appear headed for trial.  Lafayette & Kumagai’s big-firm trained attorneys utilize a full range of litigation approaches to resolving cases, including mediations and other methods of early dispute resolution.
