Good in a tough battle.
Mr. Barsotti represented me as the defendent in a lawsuit filed by a former employer who was represented by a large firm with offices in Northern and Southern California. The complaint alleged breech of contract, theft of trade secrets and many other assorted claims. My new employer was also a defendent and engaged separate council. Mr. Barsotti was extremely efficient in his preparation for depositions and had a keen sense of the core issues of the case. The coordination with my employers council was very smooth and there was no duplicaiton of effort for the sake of billing hours. During the depositions (10) he was appropriately aggressive and has a great pressence with his large frame and deep bass voice. My case settled outside court, but I expect he is very effective in that enviornment. In summary, he helped me through a major crossroad in my career for which I will be eternally grateful.
