Thompson Coburn is pleased to welcome antitrust and complex commercial litigator Julian Brew as a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Julian was previously a partner with Kaye Scholer and has 25 years of experience representing major multinational corporations, as well as regional businesses and entrepreneurs, in high-stakes litigation.
Julian has defended major corporations, including some of the world’s leading oil and technology companies, in individual and class actions in state and federal courts and abroad, involving claims under antitrust and unfair competition laws.
In his complex commercial litigation practice, Julian has also handled cases involving a wide range of industries and types of claims, including class actions, shareholder and partnership disputes, product liability, fraud, breach of contract, employment, intellectual property, and cases involving the entertainment industry.
Julian has tried cases before juries, judges and arbitration panels, and has handled appeals on behalf of parties and amici curiae in various states and federal circuits, including the United States Supreme Court, the Third, Sixth and Ninth circuits and the California and Northern Mariana Islands Supreme Courts.
“We’re very pleased to welcome a fantastic commercial litigator like Julian to our Los Angeles office,” said Thompson Coburn Chairman Tom Minogue. “His longtime work for oil, technology, and entertainment companies in a host of litigation matters adds to our very experienced litigation teams working in California and across the country.”
"I am excited to join an established and highly regarded national firm with such a wide breadth of experience and cutting-edge technology, that is committed to continuing to build upon its already strong presence in the Los Angeles market,” Julian said.
Julian earned his law degree from the University of Chicago, and obtained his B.A. from the University of Miami. He has served as a member of the Lawyers Advisory Council for the Constitutional Rights Foundation, and as a volunteer prosecutor for the Los Angeles City Attorneys' Office through the Los Angeles Bar Association’s Trial Attorney Project.
