Brown & Charbonneau, LLP is proud to announce that Gregory G. Brown has once again been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 26th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®. Brown will be included in the 2020 publication in the practice area of Commercial/Business Litigation. This is the third consecutive year Brown has been recognized for his outstanding work. Attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in America® are recognized by their legal industry peers for their legal excellence in specific fields. For the 2020 publication, more than 8 million votes were analyzed, resulting in the inclusion of more than 62,000 lawyers—representing approximately 5% of lawyers in private practice in the U.S.
Brown is the Founding Partner of Brown & Charbonneau, LLP, an AV-rated business, litigation and family law firm based in Irvine, California. For more than 30 years, Brown has honed his trial and litigation expertise in the areas of contract actions, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty cases, trade secret litigation, trust litigation, commercial contract disputes, intellectual property disputes, unfair competition, false advertising, shareholder derivative actions, corporate litigation, complex dissolution actions, real estate & construction, personal injury and professional liability suits. Brown is a Certified Trial Specialist, (a distinction earned by approximately 150 lawyers in California), and a graduate of both the internationally renowned Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution, and the National Institute of Trial Advocacy
Brown’s recent notable successes in high profile commercial disputes earned him a spot on the list in the field of Commercial Litigation. For example, Brown recently obtained a $4,800,000 settlement following a multi-million-dollar trial win on behalf of plaintiffs South Orange County Water Authority (SOCWA) and its affiliates, which include City of Laguna Beach, South Coast Water District, Emerald Bay Service District. The settlement also provided for the payment by defendant Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) of $2,700,000 in attorneys’ fees and a permanent injunction prohibiting the wrongful conduct in the future.
Other notable wins for Brown include a $2,950,000 verdict for his client in a business fraud case against a publicly traded company and two of its directors, and his successful defense of a Fortune 500 company in a $30,000,000 fraud and breach of contract jury trial.
Of the recognition, Brown said, “It really is an honor to be recognized by my colleagues for the work we do at Brown & Charbonneau to help those involved in business and commercial disputes. When we launched our firm in 2002, we committed to providing the highest quality legal representation to each client who entrusted us with their case. It is an honor to advocate for others, and it is also a tremendous responsibility that we do not take lightly. Being recognized for our efforts to achieve this mission in Commercial Litigation shows us that we’re doing what we set out to do.”
