Welcome to Skaggs Faucette LLP

Our Background:

Skaggs Faucette LLP is a litigation firm with offices in San Francisco and Palo Alto. The firm was founded by Jason Skaggs and Jeff Faucette in 2012. Previously, Jason and Jeff practiced law together for over ten years as associates and then partners at what was then Howard Rice Nemerovski Canady Falk & Rabkin (now Arnold & Porter) in San Francisco. Jason and Jeff are experienced litigators who have represented Fortune 500 companies, small and medium-sized businesses, and individuals in a wide variety of commercial and intellectual property disputes on both the plaintiff and defense side.

We always seek to obtain favorable results for our clients’ matters as quickly and efficiently as possible. For example, we recently successfully defended our clients Datel Holdings Ltd. and its affiliates in a trade secret misappropriation case filed by Hewlett-Packard seeking damages in excess of $30 million. After less than eight months of litigation, HP dismissed the case in the face of a pending motion to dismiss—without any settlement or compensation from Datel. Our recent work also includes the successful defense of lawsuits filed against our clients LinkedIn, Yahoo!, Sotheby’s, Hotwire, Inc., and Forest Laboratories, as well as the successful prosecution of lawsuits we filed on behalf of clients Amyris and Luidia.  

Our Approach:

We founded this firm because we share a commitment to excellence in the practice of law and the desire to be personally and directly involved in each of our cases without the overhead and billing pressures of a traditional firm. We started our legal careers clerking for federal judges, and we received our earliest training together at Howard Rice where we participated in a wide range of legal disputes ranging from smaller matters to high profile litigation. We apply these experiences to deliver high quality legal representation tailored to the individual needs of each client that is delivered in a practical, personal, and efficient manner.
