Kerr & Wagstaffe Named A Top-20 Boutique
Our previous firm–Kerr & Wagstaffe–was named as one of the Daily Journal’s Top 20 Boutique Law Firms of 2017. The award acknowledges our “victories in a number of high-profile cases while often facing off against attorneys from much larger firms,” including the largest jury verdict on a Dodd-Frank claim and our work defending the privacy of information regarding both applicants for admission to the State Bar of California and records of the Commission on Judicial Performance.
The Wagstaffe Group Practice Guide Released
In a first-of-its-kind release on May 23, 2017, The Wagstaffe Group Federal Practice Guide (online, e-book and 3 volume book) becomes available to judges and lawyers across the country. In addition to 3,700 pages explaining all aspects of pretrial litigation and procedures, the Practice Guide contains 200 imbedded videos in which Jim Wagstaffe explains the many procedures for litigators to win their cases. Frank Busch and Maria Radwick contribute their expertise to many chapters of the practice guide.
