Gavin Gruber is an associate in our Portland office. After attending law school in San Francisco, Gavin began his career working for a small boutique firm in San Diego specializing in wage and hour class actions in both state and federal court.  He also represented employees in various administrative proceedings before the State of California, including the Labor & Workforce Development Agency.

Prior to joining MZFC, Gavin worked for one of the largest insurance defense firms in the Pacific Northwest.  His litigation practice was diverse and his practice areas included director/office liability, personal lines insurance, commercial general liability (CGL), construction and development, and bad faith.  He served as the primary handling attorney for a wide variety of cases including, but not limited to, those involving: piercing the corporate veil; infringement of trade secrets and exclusive contractual rights; violation of non-compete agreements; general business disputes; fraudulent sale of securities; real property disputes; motor vehicle accidents (individuals, taxis, and semi-trucks); construction defect (single family homes as well as commercial properties); breach of contract; and violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”)

Gavin also defends broker-dealers, brokers, and investment advisors in FINRA arbitrations and state and federal court actions nationwide.  He advises and represents firms and registered representatives in regulatory investigations and actions initiated by the SEC, FINRA, and state regulatory agencies. Gavin also supports the firm’s commercial and complex, employment, and insurance defense litigation practice areas, with a particular focus on consumer and employment class actions in state and federal courts.
