About The Firm


Founding partners Steven Kaufhold and Jonathan Gaskin first practiced together in the litigation department of Brobeck Phleger & Harrison. During that time, clients and practitioners noted Brobeck’s expertise in securities and derivative litigation as well as the representation of technology companies across the country. Our attorneys also practiced at AMLaw 100 firms other than Brobeck (including Wilson Sonsini, Akin Gump, Clifford Chance, and Orrick), where they served as co-counsel on several litigation matters. Convinced they could provide superior service, value, and results practicing together in a boutique firm setting, they founded Kaufhold Gaskin LLP.

Value Proposition

Being a boutique firm ensures Kaufhold Gaskin LLP the flexibility to align its interests with its clients’ goals and objectives. The streamlined structure provides for efficient legal services and accurate financial projections of fees and costs. It also allows the firm to explore alternative fee arrangements – from flat fees to contingency agreements – in appropriate cases.
