Email: Mr. Ross
Alan G. Ross received his Juris Doctor in 1992 from Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California, Berkeley. He graduated summa cum laude from University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Mr. Ross began his legal career with Graham & James LLP as a litigation associate in its Los Angeles and Orange County offices. His work in these two offices came with the benefits of working for an established worldwide firm while still affording him substantial "hands on" involvement with cases in state and federal courts.
Based on his early performance, Mr. Ross was offered and accepted an opportunity in 1995 to relocate to the firm's office in Tokyo, Japan. During his tenure in Japan, Mr. Ross worked as in-house counsel for ITOCHU Corporation, a globally integrated Japanese trading company with annual revenues exceeding US$100 billion. During his three years at ITOCHU, Mr. Ross was responsible for overseeing litigation in United States courts and elsewhere and for negotiating mergers, acquisitions and contracts for infrastructure projects throughout Asia and Australia. These projects included the Kowloon-Canton Railway, the US$500 million Monorail portion of the "KL Linear City" project in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and establishment of RPG Itochu Finance Ltd., a multinational financing company in Mumbai (Bombay), India.
Mr. Ross returned to practice in the United States in 1998 and became affiliated with the firm of Payne & Fears in Orange County, California. He subsequently co-founded the predecessor firm to Ross, Wolcott, Teinert & Prout LLP in Costa Mesa, California.
Mr. Ross is admitted to practice before all State and Federal Courts in California. He is a member of the State Bar of California and the Association of Business Trial Lawyers.
