Leading Attorneys in California

2007

For the 10th straight year, Joseph W. Cotchett was named one of the top 100 leading attorneys in California in 2007 by the San Francisco / Los Angeles Daily Journal. “Cotchett has a knack for filing lawsuits that address hot-button issues, from stock option backdating to the public exposure of an undercover CIA agent,” the Journal said. “As a result, he often winds up at odds with those in powerful places.” The legal newspaper also said Cotchett was one of only a few attorneys who have been named to the top 100 list every year since it began in 1998. Earlier, in a separate list compiled by California Law Business magazine, Cotchett was named as one of the top 10 of the 100 most influential attorneys in California. The magazine described the Burlingame litigator as “a fixture on any list of movers and shakers.”
