How Jeremy Helps Clients

Jeremy Rosen is sought after by corporate clients across the country for strategic consultation in high stakes cases at all stages of litigation. He has handled hundreds of appeals in state and federal appellate courts. His cases have involved numerous important issues regarding anti-trust, environmental law, class actions, wage and hour law, employment law, breach of contract, intellectual property, California’s Unfair Competition Law, CEQA, the enforceability of arbitration clauses, hospital peer review, the scope of public employee whistleblower protection, and the application of the primary assumption of risk doctrine. He is also nationally renowned for his proficiency in numerous issues arising under the First Amendment and California’s anti-SLAPP law. Using that knowledge, Jeremy has helped a wide variety of clients – including churches, private businesses, and individuals – defeat lawsuits that seek to impose liability on clients for exercising their rights of petition, free speech, and free exercise of religion.
