About California Business Litigation

California Business Lawyer David Newdorf

Business Litigation Attorney David Newdorf

My name is David Newdorf and welcome to the California Business Litigation Reporter.

I’ve been a civil trial lawyer in San Francisco, California, since 1994. I practice in the area of commercial disputes and public entity defense. I have been lead counsel in more than one hundred litigation matters.

I have taken numerous cases to trial in state and federal court, handled dozens of aribrtrations and mediations, and briefed and argued major appeals in the California Court of Appeal and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. My published decisions include Nishihama v. City and County of San Francisco (2001) 93 Cal. App. 4th 298, a frequently cited precedent capping medical costs when the plaintiff is covered by medical insurance.

As a former trial team leader in the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office, I handled high profile cases and supervised lawyers handling hundreds of active litigation matters.

The State Bar Board of Governors appointed me to the Litigation Section Executive Committee for a three year term commencing September 2008.
