Ron Bushner heads a litigation team in the San Francisco office that handles a wide variety of cases. He has litigated cases throughout California in the state and federal systems, at both the trial and appellate levels. His practice focuses on catastrophic bodily injury and death cases under negligence and product liability theories, defense of employers in individual and class actions, professional liability cases, the full spectrum of marine-related claims and environmental contamination cases. Ron has made many presentations to industry groups ranging from the Surplus Lines Association of California to claims handlers for various insurers to local business associations.

Ron's approach to defense is to rely on the good judgment he has acquired over more than 30 years of practicing law. He assesses which strategy will lead to the most direct, cost-efficient path to resolution. Whenever possible, resolution is by settlement, and when necessary, by trial. Ron has tried many cases to verdict with favorable results for his clients. Earlier in his career, Ron was a member of the Oakland Police Department in the Patrol Division and a frequent instructor in its highly regarded training section.
