Attorney Biography

Prior to starting his own practice in 2019, Edward Chen (Ed) worked as an associate at the prestigious Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith, LLP, an AmLAW100 law firm, with over 1,200 attorneys nationwide and was an Associate Attorney in the firm’s headquarters office located in Downtown Los Angeles with approximately 300 other attorneys. Ed’s prior experience also includes the representation of business-owners and individuals for matters involving business, immigration, personal injury and intellectual property law.

At Lewis Brisbois, Ed handled and successfully defended against claims brought against the firm’s clients in the hotel, hospitality and transportation industries. Most notably, most of his work was dedicated to the defense of ride-sharing application company Lyft, Inc., where he successfully against numerous claims brought against Lyft for automobile injuries allegedly sustained by Lyft passengers. In addition, Ed also dedicated a large part of his practice was to the defense of large hotel-chain clients including the Marriott and Sheraton hotel chains.

During the first two years of practice, Ed served as an associate attorney for a boutique business and intellectual property law firm in Irvine, CA, where he handled a variety of matters including business , construction defect, complex commercial litigation and real estate matters.

During this time, Ed’s representation also included a patent-owner and inventor in a large-scale, multi-party federal court litigation involving intellectual property law for the alleged infringement of his client’s patents. The patents were in regards to the method and use of femtosecond lasers and direct application for surgical eye procedures, including cataract and LASIK surgery. Notably, Ed was responsible for defending several key expert witness depositions regarding the use of the patent technology by a renowned ophthalmologist based in Amarillo, Texas and defending the deposition of his client’s expert witness with regards to the calculation of patent royalties and damages. Most notably, Ed took the lead during the critical summary judgment stage, where he successfully opposed and presented for oral argument the motions brought against his client on non-patent issues involving alter ego liability and contract termination issues. See Dr. Joseph Neev v. Alcon Laboratories, Inc. et a. 8:15-cv-00336-JVS-JCG (and consolidated cases).
