Clarkson Law Firm hires top plaintiff and trial lawyer to build out appellate practice. Glenn Danas welcomed as Partner.
MALIBU, CA – June 30, 2022. — Leading consumer protection law firm Clarkson welcomes Glenn Danas to its Malibu-based team. Danas was previously a partner at Robins Kaplan LLP and has over a decade of experience with various California appellate courts and several significant wins before the California Supreme Court. For the second year in a row, Law Dragon included Danas in its 2022 national “500 Leading Plaintiff Employment & Civil Rights Lawyers” list.
Danas’ move to Clarkson indicates the firm’s commitment to appellate work. According to Managing Partner, Ryan Clarkson, “for a public interest law firm to thrive, it must be able to defend and overcome its trial court successes and challenges through the appeals process. Glenn Danas is a brilliant legal mind who levels up our firm’s ability to be successful on appeal. His command of the facts and law, and his ability to cleverly and carefully frame legal issues for success, demonstrates why he is among the most sought after appellate lawyers in California and across the country.”
Adds Danas: “After working together with Clarkson on several appeals, I realized how complementary my practice is with their work. The opportunity to build out the appellate practice for a firm at the forefront of consumer protection class litigation was a no-brainer.”
Danas has argued over 40 appeals in various California appellate courts and multiple cases in the California Supreme Court. Recent wins before the California Supreme Court include the consumer protection matter McGill v. Citibank and in employment cases Williams v. Marshalls and Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles.
These successes have earned Glenn numerous recognitions. In 2017 Glenn was named among the “Top 100 Attorneys in California” by the Daily Journal, and in 2015, Glenn’s work on Iskanian v. CLS Transportation Los Angeles earned him a California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (“CLAY”) award from California Lawyer magazine. Glenn has been named one of the “Top Labor and Employment Attorneys in California” by the Daily Journal each year from 2015-2019.
Over the past 10 years, Clarkson has established an active civil trial practice and track record of success, having won numerous contested class certification motions and appointments as class counsel. Recent multi-million dollar settlements in Prescott v. Bayer Healthcare and Swetz v. GSK Consumer Health have put Clarkson firmly at the lead of consumer protection and class actions in America. Founder Ryan Clarkson has been named a Super Lawyer for the past three years and has multiple five-star reviews from satisfied clients on avvo.com.
