About this firm

Umberg Zipser LLP is a premier business litigation and intellectual property boutique. Drawing on decades of experience in some of the nation's largest and most prestigious law firms, as well as national and state government service, Umberg Zipser provides clients with unparalleled legal services.

Clients face difficult and complex issues — issues that may threaten their key assets or ventures, intellectual property, most valuable people, reputations, or even ongoing viability. The firm’s attorneys bring the expertise, ingenuity, and experience to deliver the results they seek, with the efficiency and flexibility they need.

Umberg Zipser never loses sight of their clients’ objectives, and works creatively to achieve them. Clients come to Umberg Zipser because they deliver the highest quality work product together with unparalleled service. Collectively, the firm’s attorneys have tried countless cases to successful verdict. But trial isn't always the right answer. Umberg Zipser’s pretrial strategies, successful motion practice, and extensive alternative dispute resolution experience enable us to achieve superb results without a trial, and even keep litigation from occurring against our clients. With big-firm experience and small-firm efficiencies, along with an established record of trial and litigation success, the firm is equally adept at handling the multi-party, complex case as well as more limited and specialized matters where the utmost efficiency is required.

Umberg Zipser attorneys are recognized experts in a wide array of practice areas, including business litigation, intellectual property, class actions, trade secrets, real estate, and white collar criminal defense. The firm’s peers and the legal community continue to recognize its accomplishments, as they have received multiple awards across a variety of organizations and publications. The firm's lawyers are consistently named as Best Lawyers in America® and Super Lawyers®. Umberg Zipser founding partner Dean Zipser was named “Lawyer of the Year” by Best Lawyers in America® for Bet-the-Company Litigation and Intellectual Property Litigation in Orange County.

Umberg Zipser is proud of the ability to handle a wide variety of matters for a diverse client base. The firm understands that clients' needs differ from client to client, and matter to matter. In response to these needs, Umberg Zipser offers a range of flexible billing arrangements that promote efficiency and predictability. The firm’s client focus, devotion, and flexibility have enabled them to maintain client relationships that span decades.

The attorneys at Umberg Zipser are strong believers in giving back to the legal profession and their community – in actions, and not just words or dollars. Umberg Zipser is actively involved as leaders of multiple professional, pro bono, and charitable organizations, as well as governmental positions.
