James J. Brosnahan will share his perspective on the future of the U.S. Supreme Court.

 James J. Brosnahan, Esq.

 

 James J. Brosnahan is Senior of Counsel at Morrison & Foerster LLP. He regularly undertook complex cases that are about to go to trial. He has tried, to conclusion, 150 civil and criminal cases. His cases have ranged from anti-trust to wire fraud and from patent litigation to white collar crime and murder. A “lion of the trial bar,” Mr. Brosnahan is one of the most respected and recognized trial lawyers in the United States. He represented the former President of the Board of Education in San Francisco in a case charging murder for hire.  Mr. Brosnahan has been named among the top 30 trial lawyers in the United States, according to the Legal 500 US 2013. Mr. Brosnahan has more than 55 years of expertise in both civil and criminal trial work. Mr. Brosnahan was the Deputy Special Counsel assigned to prosecute Casper Weinberger, the former Secretary of Defense.

In 1996, he was inducted into the State Bar of California’s “Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame” and was awarded the Samuel E. Gates Award by the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2000. In 2012, he was recognized as a Lifetime Achiever by The American Lawyer for outstanding professional success and a devotion to public service. Other professional recognitions include American Board of Trial Advocates’ Donald E. Bailey Civility and Professionalism Award (2018), Justice Wiley W. Manuel Pro Bono Award (2018), White-Collar Crime/Government Investigations (2005-2012), and the San Francisco Lawyers’ Club honored Mr. Brosnahan with its inaugural “Legend of the Law” award. He has been recommended as a leading lawyer by Chambers USA every year since its launch. He is also ranked in the Best Lawyers in America 2014 (for the past 29 years).

Mr. Brosnahan is a past president of the Bar Association of San Francisco, whose Volunteer Legal Service Program he founded. He also serves as Master Advocate on the faculty of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.
