Gregory Brod (Chair) has been practicing in San Francisco since 1996 and is a founding partner of Willoughby Brod, LLP. Greg ran his own practice since 2000 and has been an active member of the SFLTA since 2002. Greg’s practice focuses on litigating injury cases, business disputes, legal malpractice, class actions, qui tam cases and landlord tenant matters.

Chris Cole has been a sole practitioner since 1975, with a focus on general civil litigation. He has experience in handling real estate disputes; bodily injury cases; representing trustees, conservators, executors and estate personal representatives during probate, conservatorship and trust administration and litigation; general contract litigation and other consumer and commercial matters. Many such cases involve either contracts with attorney fee shifting terms or provide for fees to be awarded only with the court’s approval and thus require detailed time keeping records and preparation of time sheets to be submitted to the court in support of petitions or motions for approval of attorney’s fees.
