Benjamin Davidson is of counsel in the firm’s employment counseling and litigation group.  Ben supports our clients’ commercial and employment litigation needs. In fact, our relationship with Ben goes all the way to the early 90s when Leonard and Ben shared a dorm room at UCLA.

Ben Davidson was born and raised in California. He is a graduate of UCLA and Cornell Law School.  At Cornell, he made the Dean’s List, was selected as an Honor’s Fellow for Cornell’s Legal Writing program for two years, became Managing Editor of the Cornell International Law Journal, and he was the first in his class to have a Note selected for publication by the Cornell International Law Journal. A fluent Spanish speaker who lived and worked in Costa Rica before attending law school, Ben also served as Academic Chair in Cornell’s chapter of LALSA (Latin American Law Students Association) and represented an asylum applicant in Cornell’s Asylum and Convention Against Torture Clinic.

Following graduation in 2005, Ben returned to California and worked as a litigation attorney for the preeminent national law firms of Proskauer Rose LLP and Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP. During his career, Ben has handled a wide variety of claims arising in the workplace, including discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, pregnancy leave, breach of contract, and wage and hour claims, representing both employers and employees. He has frequently also represented high-level executives and public officers in severance negotiations, obtaining six- and seven-figure settlements on behalf of his clients.

Apart from his litigation practice, Benjamin provides advice and counseling to employers to ensure compliance with California and Federal employment laws and regulations. He is intimately familiar with California wage and hour laws and has a knack for implementing policies that protect employers from frivolous litigation with minimal interruption to the business.

Benjamin Davidson is licensed and admitted to practice in all courts in the State of California and in the Eastern, Northern, Central, and Southern District Courts of California. He has served as a member of the executive committee of the Beverly Hills Bar Association and was named a “Rising Star” by Superlawyers Magazine.

Benjamin is fluent in Spanish and conversational in Hebrew.
