As lead trial counsel, Gil won an unprecedented trial verdict demonstrating that the California Air Resources Board unconstitutionally impaired contracts of the world’s leading diesel engine manufacturers. His national trial practice benefits from his experience in electronic discovery. Gil serves as national Co-leader of the firm’s E-Discovery Advocacy and Management team.
