Biography • Business Crime Defence

David Anderson is a trial lawyer who represents clients in their most important and sensitive matters. He has represented Ariba, AT&T, Bank of the West, Blue Coat Systems, Building Materials Holding Corporation, Chevron, Dynegy, Franklin Templeton, InterMune, Juniper Networks, Marvell, OmniVision, Selectica, STMicro, Union Bank of California and Wells Fargo, or related persons, in significant matters for those clients, within the past 10 years.

These clients selected Mr Anderson based on a demonstrated record of success both in and outside of the courtroom. He has been described in the legal press as 'thorough, professional and courteous,' 'smart and well-organised,' 'good in front of a jury' and 'well known and respected.'

Within the past year Mr Anderson has led representations in criminal and SEC cases: representing individuals in federal criminal investigations involving alleged violations of the antitrust and securities laws. In the past he has represented companies and individuals in investigations involving antitrust, insider trading, healthcare, licensing, obstruction of justice, securities and tax. Mr Anderson has also led representations in independent investigations: last year he represented the special committee of the board of directors of a publicly held company in an investigation of revenue recognition and other accounting items that had become the subject of an SEC enforcement investigation, NYSE delisting proceedings and securities litigation. He has also led representations in complex commercial litigation: currently he represents defendants in patent and antitrust cases. Last year he represented the plaintiff in a trade secrets case that he concluded in less than six months by obtaining a temporary restraining order, permanent injunction and final judgment against the defendant.
