Share Article

Veteran Trial Attorney, Certified Specialist in Civil Trial Advocacy, and Founder of award-winning Orange County, CA law firm recognized by peers for excellence in commercial/business litigation

It is an honor to advocate for others, and it is also a tremendous responsibility that we do not take lightly.

Brown & Charbonneau, LLP is proud to announce that Gregory G. Brown has once again been selected by his peers for inclusion in the 27th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America®. Brown will be included in the 2021 publication in the practice area of Commercial/Business Litigation and Personal Injury. This is the fourth 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 2021 publication, more than 9.4 million votes were analyzed, resulting in the inclusion of more than 67,000 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, partnership disputes, 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 member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). He is also an AV Rated Attorney by Martindale-Hubbell and has been named to Super Lawyers each year since 2009.

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, along with Partner Mark Higuchi, recently secured a defense ruling for clients being sued for $12 million in breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and breach of contract claims. At trial, Trial Specialist Gregory Brown was able to establish a lack of credibility in the Plaintiff’s claim, showing that no promises had been made, therefore the plaintiff could not have relied on the alleged promise. Brown also showed in cross examination of witnesses that Plaintiffs had sustained no actual, recoverable damages in both the derivative and individual claims.

Other notable trial 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.”

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Best Lawyers® lists are compiled based on an exhaustive peer-review evaluation. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore, inclusion in Best Lawyers® is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers® "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
