Raphael Cung is an attorney with Callahan & Blaine. He has extensive experience in complex business and corporate litigation, including in disputes involving contracts, fraud and business torts, intellectual property, real estate, and breach of fiduciary duties. Raphael has appeared in state and federal courts throughout California, as well as numerous arbitration proceedings.

Among Raphael's accomplishments are: successfully representing a major film studio suing over a "knock-off" TV show, which made new case law interpreting the federal Lanham Act; obtaining a walk-away settlement after filing a summary judgment motion in a dispute involving a $17 million real property; defending corporate directors and officers sued for breach of fiduciary duties in connection with a "going private" tender offer, which allowed the $600 million transaction to go forward; winning a motion for a new trial for a client casino resort suing over defective gaming equipment after the court initially granted a directed verdict; winning summary judgment for a real estate brokerage sued for the acts of an employee who had a side business, a result upheld on appeal; and obtaining complete vindication for a corporate president sued over the estate of a prominent billionaire, whose vast network of companies the client previously oversaw.

Raphael previously practiced with, among others, O'Melveny & Myers and Greenberg Glusker in Los Angeles. He has been selected as a "Rising Star" by California Super lawyers.

Before going to law school, Raphael served for 5 years in the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, D.C., where he formulated trade policy toward East Asia.

Raphael emigrated from Saigon, South Vietnam in 1975, and is a native speaker of Vietnamese. He has also studied French and Mandarin Chinese.
