Micah began his career in the San Francisco office of Latham & Watkins LLP. While at Latham, he litigated matters relating to securities, professional liability, intellectual property, and constitutional law. Micah’s work at Latham included matters which progressed to successful jury trials and arbitration hearings. He also drafted successful appellate briefs submitted to the California Court of Appeals and the Ninth Circuit.
After leaving Latham, Micah practiced at two litigation boutiques in San Francisco. There, he focused on litigation resulting from failed partnerships and joint ventures, and the claims for breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty that routinely accompany them.
Micah has litigated multiple trade secret misappropriation claims. He also regularly advises employees and employers regarding their rights and obligations concerning trade secrets and confidential information that is at risk when employees move between competitors.
Micah has significant experience with electronic discovery issues and has provided guidance on all aspects of the e-discovery process, including preservation of evidence, data collection, processing, review and production, privilege issues for electronic information, and the law regarding sanctions for discovery abuses. This experience helps him keep client discovery costs, and the related time commitment, as reasonable as possible.
He earned his B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2002, where he was a Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholar, and his J.D., with High Honors, from Rutgers School of Law, Camden, in 2006. While in law school, he was a senior editor of the Journal of Law & Policy, and a Marshall-Brennan Fellow, which allowed him to teach constitutional law to high school students in Camden, New Jersey.
