About Paul Lee

About me

I have a diverse background litigating a wide variety of business disputes as well as complex tort matters. I have successfully prosecuted and defended cases across a broad range of legal issues, including breach of contract, unfair competition, fraud, and commercial claims, as well as business torts. I have also successfully handled numerous products liability and toxic tort cases that involve a variety of products, including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and heavy machinery and equipment.  

My representative victories include a favorable judgment involving the interpretation of the Uniform Commercial Code which established new precedent and resulted in a published federal court opinion addressing the negotiation of a forged instrument; defense of a seven figure breach of contract action which resulted in the plaintiff paying to settle the action; dismissal of an environmental remediation case where the client was charged with negligent cleanup of hydrocarbon contamination and the California Court of Appeal’s affirmation of the judgment of dismissal; dismissals of multiple products liability actions following successful motions to quash service of the summonses and complaints; voluntary dismissals of multiple products liability cases, including ones brought against a pharmaceutical manufacturer and industrial equipment manufacturer, after summary judgment motions were filed; dismissal of a products liability case brought against a manufacturing client following multiple successful challenges of the plaintiff’s pleading and the California Court of Appeal’s affirmation of the dismissal; and a de minimus, nuisance settlement on behalf of a food flavoring manufacturer client charged with causing serious obstructive lung disease requiring lung transplantations even though other named defendants paid seven figures pursuant to settlement or judgment.
