“Super Lawyer” Gordon Bosserman Joins Andre, Morris & Buttery
Accomplished litigator brings talents to Central Coast firm
SAN LUIS OBISPO – Well-known Southern California trial attorney Gordon Bosserman has joined Andre, Morris & Buttery in an “of counsel” role. The opportunity to work with a leading law firm and live on the Central Coast drew Bosserman, an accomplished litigator, and his wife, Jennifer to relocate to San Luis Obispo County. He began his association with the firm on Dec. 1.
Bosserman was most recently a partner at Spolin Cohen Mainzer and Bosserman LLP of Los Angeles, specializing in trial practice before federal and state court and agencies. While at the firm, Bosserman was recognized as a “super lawyer,” a Thompson-Reuters rating that awards the honor based on outstanding peer recognition and professional achievement measures. Other prior employment includes a stint at the prestigious Baker & McKenzie law firm, where he was an international partner.
Bosserman’s choice of Andre, Morris & Buttery owes in part to his longtime association with AM&B principal Jim Buttery. The two have been friends since they were young associates in a small firm in Los Angeles, and according to Buttery, the timing worked out ideally as Bosserman sought to move at the same time AM&B was expanding its litigation work. “Everything aligned for a right time, right place, right choice decision,” said Buttery. “We couldn’t be happier to add Gordon’s talents to our firm.”
Bosserman has extensive bench and jury trial and arbitration experience in employment law. He has tried cases involving race, age, gender and disability discrimination, “whistle-blower” claims, sexual harassment and hostile environment workplace cases, among others.
Bosserman also has deep experience in cases involving lawyer malpractice, fraud, breach of contract, real estate broker malpractice, breach of oil and gas leases, unfair competition and more. He has tried insurance cases under healthcare law as well as extensive experience with class action defense.
Bosserman was admitted to practice law in California in 1975. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of California Los Angeles, where he was also a member of the Bruins football team. He earned a law degree from Loyola Law School of Los Angeles in 1975. He is also a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
Andre, Morris & Buttery has been serving the Central Coast since its founding 62 years ago. The Central Coast’s largest law firm caters to the needs of business with a range of practice specialties including Civil Litigation, Business and Real Estate Transactions, Employment Law, Environmental and Land Use, Hospitality, Wine & Agribusiness, Estate Planning, Trusts and Probate. The firm has offices in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria.
