The National Law Journal named Ryan Baker a 2019 “Litigation Trailblazer.” This recognition is reserved for lawyers who have made an impact through new types of strategies or innovative court cases – lawyers who are “truly agents of change.”
Known for handling complex trials and appeals, Ryan has guided the growth of many client’s businesses. Baker is known as a big-picture thinker who frequently advances groundbreaking argument on behalf of disruptive technology clients before courts across the country.
As discussed in the National Law Journal, Baker recently obtained a unanimous California Supreme Court victory, clarifying certain limitations of California’s anti-SLAPP law. “It is important that anti-SLAPP jurisprudence track legislative intent, which was not to provide defendants a tool to snuff out valid claims in their infancy based on some tangential connection to a matter of public interest,” according to Baker.
The National Law Journal also notes Baker’s commitment to pro bono work.
