Harmeet Dhillon is a nationally recognized lawyer, trusted boardroom advisor, and passionate advocate for individual, corporate and institutional clients across numerous industries and walks of life. Her focus is in commercial litigation, employment law, First Amendmentrights, and election law matters.

From an early interest in constitutional litigation, to a stint at the Department of Justice, federal appeals court clerkship, decade of practice at prestigious international law firms, and then founding her own law firm in 2006, Harmeet’s legal career has been marked by a passion for justice, a zeal for attacking legal challenges, and an intense sense of satisfaction in helping her clients realize creative and practical solutions to seemingly intractable problems.

Following a clerkship with the Hon. Paul V.

Harmeet’s broad experience also encompasses securities, entertainment, employment discrimination and civil rights matters.

Ms. Dhillon has developed a niche practice in representing clients across California in election and campaign law matters, ranging from general compliance and ethics representation for partisan and non-partisan contenders to ballot description contests and intellectual property matters pertaining to campaign communications. She is regularly retained by candidates and campaigns for advice on complex legal issues.

Harmeet has practiced before numerous state and federal courts and administrative tribunals across the United States, has successfully handled several trials (jury and bench), arbitrations (including international), and mediations, and has resolved many business disputesprior to the initiation of litigation.
