Brad Brian, Jim Rutten Review Business and Commercial Litigation Treatise

Munger, Tolles & Olson litigators Brad D. Brian and James C. Rutten published a review of a treatise about business and commercial litigation in the Daily Journal on Oct. 6, 2017.

In their review of Business and Commercial Litigation in Federal Courts (4th ed. 2016), edited by Robert L. Haig, the attorneys highlight the treatise’s content on substantive areas of the law, including antitrust, patent and products liability, as well as litigation procedure and effective advocacy. The authors also underscore the treatise’s insights on the business of law and training new lawyers.

“More than a treatise on the law, this is the definitive guide to being a successful commercial litigator,” they write. “This work belongs on the bookshelf of every commercial litigator.”

Mr. Brian is a national trial lawyer and co-managing partner of Munger, Tolles & Olson. A complex civil and criminal litigator, Mr. Brian is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. He has been identified by Chambers USA as one of the top trial lawyers in the country.

Mr. Rutten is a litigator who devotes approximately half his practice to complex securities and shareholder class action and derivative litigation, and the other half to other commercial litigation matters, including in the areas of unfair competition, contract disputes, general tort law and consumer law.
