Drawing on decades of experience in some of the nation’s largest and most prestigious law firms, as well as national and state government service, Umberg Zipser provides clients with unparalleled legal services. Named one of the Daily Journal’s Top Litigation Boutique Firms, U/Z is a go-to firm for litigation in Orange County and around the state.
The firm’s lawyers are recognized as among the very best in their practice areas. They are consistently named as Best Lawyers in America® and Super Lawyers®. Last year, for example, founding partner Dean Zipser was named by Best Lawyers as the Lawyer of the Year for Intellectual Property Litigation in Orange County.
We pursue our clients’ objectives strategically and with maximum efficiency and flexibility across a wide array of practice areas, including intellectual property, class actions, unfair competition, environmental, real estate, and other complex business litigation, as well as white collar criminal defense.
U/Z is pleased to announce that the firm again has been ranked Tier One in the “Best Law Firms” list by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® for the Orange County metropolitan area. The ranking showcases top law firms recognized by clients and peers for delivering professional excellence and for high quality ratings.
U/Z is honored to be named again one of Orange County’s 50 most community-minded companies by the Orange County Business Journal in partnership with OneOC, Points of Light and True Impact. Civic 50 OC honorees are selected based upon four dimensions of their community engagement programs: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact, as determined by an annual survey.
Co-founding partner Dean Zipser has been elected President of the Orange County Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, effective November 1. Dean was installed at FBA/OC’s annual Judges’ Night on October 17.
Co-founding partner, and California State Senator Tom Umberg authored an article for the Daily Journal titled, “Document Production Games Run Amok”. In the article, Tom explains that he authored California Senate Bill 17 in reaction to the firm’s recent experience of gamesmanship after a relatively routine request for production of documents in a business litigation matter.

Mei currently serves on the Board of Directors for both the Orange County Bar Association and its Charitable Fund. In addition to Mei’s service, U/Z is proud to be a long-time supporter of the OCBACF, and is an Underwriter Sponsor for the event.
