Glenn Danas

Glenn Danas

PARTNER

Glenn Danas is an appellate lawyer and trial court litigator who brings over a decade of experience to Clarkson Law Firm, P.C. Prior to joining Clarkson Law Firm, Glenn was a partner at Robins Kaplan LLP. Insightful and responsive, Glenn’s clear writing, attention to detail, and skill at oral argument have helped him to achieve remarkable results for clients. Glenn is also a certified appellate specialist by the California State Bar—making him among the .1% of California lawyers who has earned that recognition.

Glenn has argued over 40 appeals in the various California appellate courts, including most divisions of the California Court of Appeal, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and multiple cases in the California Supreme Court, and has briefed dozens more. Glenn also has recently acted as counsel of record in cutting-edge appellate matters in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (representing rapper 50 Cent in a copyright dispute with rapper Rick Ross), in the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals (in a dispute between rival medical device companies), and in the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court (on behalf of a victim of priest sexual abuse). In recent years, Glenn has achieved several significant wins before the California Supreme Court, including 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 recognition from numerous organizations. In 2021, Law Dragon, named one of the country’s “Top 500 Plaintiff’s and Civil Rights Lawyers”; also in 2021, the Los Angeles Business Journal, named one of their “Leaders of Influence: Thriving in Their 40s.” 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 was also named one of the “Top 20 Attorneys in California under 40” in 2013 by the Daily Journal, and has been named one of the “Top Labor and Employment Attorneys in California” by the Daily Journal each year from 2015-2019.

Glenn graduated from Emory University School of Law with honors, and was a member of the Emory Law Journal. He received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University, where he attained a B.S. in Industrial and Labor Relations. Following law school, Glenn served as a law clerk for the Honorable U.W. Clemon, Chief U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Alabama.

A frequent speaker and writer, Glenn regularly presents his thought leadership on California appellate, class action and employment law issues at conferences and seminars, and in articles in various legal publications.
