About

About Fergus, A Law Office

For over 35 years, I have been helping individuals and businesses alike resolve complicated legal problems involving high-stakes issues.

After practicing in a large law firm for over 20 years — where I rose to be one of its leading trial lawyers — I wanted to remove the big law barrier and help people and businesses on a more personal, one-on-one level. In doing so, I am now able to focus all my efforts on providing personalized, tailored legal guidance that’s designed to produce results. Through thorough preparation and sound judgment based on decades of experience, I am able to provide you cutting-edge representation that can convert your story into a compelling narrative the trier of fact can understand.

Gary Fergus has been selected to the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers each year since 2008 and has had an AV Preeminent* peer review rating (Martindale-Hubbell’s highest peer recognition for ethical standards and legal ability) for over 20 years. You can call my San Francisco office now at 866-256-5487.

I Can Help You Resolve Complex Disputes

Having represented Fortune 500 companies and high net worth individuals, I understand the nuances of getting measurable results discretely. I also understand what it takes to get such results — passion, creativity, tenacity, fearlessness, dedication and countless hours of preparation. I am always dedicated to putting my clients’ interests first.

Throughout my legal career, I have been a significant factor in obtaining a number of multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts in high-profile cases, including:

  • A $1.2 billion post-trial settlement in In re Western Asbestos
  • A $250 million post-trial settlement in In re J.T. Thorpe
  • A $750 million post-trial settlement in In re Thorpe Insulation .
  • $200 million in settlements to date in In re Plant Insulation Company

I Can Find A Creative Solution For Your Dilemma

In addition to representing fiduciaries, bankruptcy estates and businesses, I represent inventors, artists, authors, and copyright and trademark owners in intellectual property infringement matters. If you need additional help with your problem, let me assist. I am one of the lead attorneys in In re Literary Works, a worldwide class action representing freelance authors against well-known publishing and database defendants.

I can help defend your rights if your intellectual property is infringed or stolen, including in matters involving:

  • Copyright infringement
  • Entertainment agreements
  • Protecting the use of a person’s name or likeness
  • Monetizing and licensing your intellectual property
  • Guarding your trade secrets
  • Nondisclosure agreements

A Lengthy History Of Representing Clients In Complex Litigation Cases

I have more than three decades of experience in representing complex and challenging litigation cases. I have successfully litigated cases involving medical devices, pharmaceutical products, clinical trials of new biotechnology products, pesticides and product recall litigation. Additionally, I have experience developing creative solutions for complex commercial disputes, including a case involving the value of over 2,500 miles of fiber optic cable. I also represented a fiduciary who represented over 30,000 people in a complex fiduciary rights case.
