DAVID L. ANDERSON has been described in the press as a “talented trial lawyer” who is “thorough, professional and courteous,” “smart and well organized,” “good in front of a jury,” and “well known and respected.” A columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle called Dave as “cool, friendly and funny as could be” but someone you “wouldn’t want as an enemy.”
Dave is a former United States Attorney and former Supreme Court clerk. After the U.S. Senate confirmed his appointment as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California, a panelist before the Association of Business Trial Lawyers declared that “the laid-back days of the Northern California criminal practice are over.” As U.S. Attorney, Dave led a series of impactful investigations with both local and national significance.
At Sidley, Dave has maintained a far-reaching trial practice. He thrives on challenging cases and investigations. He represents both corporate and individual clients who entrust him with their most important and sensitive matters. He is comfortable with a wide range of financial subjects, having earned his undergraduate degree in accounting.
Dave has been recognized by Chambers and Partners, The Best Lawyers in America, Benchmark Litigation, International Who’s Who, and SuperLawyers. The law firm associate website Above the Law named him one of the top law firm partners to work for in California.
