Cory Burleson litigates consumer class actions and complex commercial disputes in federal courts across the United States, including in multidistrict litigation and in conjunction with parallel government enforcement actions.  His practice focuses on a wide range of complex civil litigation matters on behalf of automobile manufacturers, food manufacturers, shipping companies, and other clients across a broad array of industries.  Cory joined the firm following a one-year federal clerkship in the Central District of California.

Cory graduated from Loyola Law School in 2018, where he served as managing editor of the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review and as lead coordinator for Loyola’s Young Lawyers Program.
