WE GET IT.
Founded in 2009, Colt Wallerstein provides unparalleled legal service without the waste and inefficiency that today’s clients have every right to reject. Our formula sets us apart:
WHAT OUR CLIENTS AND COLLEAGUES ARE SAYING:
"Our company faced one of its darkest hours when we were sued by the industry's two largest competitors. Up against two of the country's largest law firms, Colt / Wallerstein skillfully, aggressively, and economically steered us through two simultaneous "bet the company" trade-secret lawsuits where our very existence was at stake. The firm was retained only days before a critical hearing on a motion for preliminary injunction, and we were continually impressed with the firm's thoughtful and creative strategies. Colt / Wallerstein wrote great briefs, argued persuasively in court, represented our company in two mediations, successfully and economically handled millions of electronic documents, and worked skillfully with expert witnesses. The firm also worked with us to develop a workable fee structure, and they remained on or under budget throughout the litigation. Colt / Wallerstein provided our company with the legal tools we required to thrive in an aggressive and competitive marketplace, and ultimately obtained complete settlements and dismissals of both actions."
"For years, I have worked closely with both Doug and Tom. I have trusted them with my clients’ most sensitive information and they have excelled in managing complex, sophisticated, and difficult commercial litigation. Doug and Tom are terrific, client-focused lawyers with a keen sense of the practical."
"We were on the opposite side from Doug in a high-stakes business dispute. Doug took most of the depositions for his side in our case. His demeanor and style, as well as his great preparation, led to him getting a significant number of key admissions during the depositions. And while Doug was focused on his clients' interest, he was always cordial, candid and professional in his dealings with us. Doug is a fierce advocate, a first-rate litigator and a worthy adversary."

"Tom Wallerstein is an expert on California’s unfair competition law (Bus. & Prof. Code s. 17200 et seq.). A number of my partners and I regularly represent defendants in consumer class actions in California courts, and we rely on Tom’s insight on developments in the law and on his timely updates whenever new decisions are announced ."
"As a senior partner, I have learned that you are only as good as the senior associate on your side. Doug Colt made me look as good as any associate with whom I have worked in my 17 years. Each client to whom I have introduced Doug raves about him and makes future work contingent on his availability."
