Jay Rapaport

Associate

Jay Rapaport maintains a diverse practice that includes labor and employment, intellectual property, and complex commercial matters. Mr. Rapaport has represented Fortune 500 companies and public agencies in state and federal courts across the country. His past cases include defeating at summary judgment a multi-million-dollar health benefits claim against a California water district, winning affirmance of an anti-SLAPP order striking claims against hospital peer review officers, and defending the State of California in a multi-billion-dollar dispute related to a proposed sale of public properties.

Mr. Rapaport also has an active pro bono practice, with a strong focus on immigration matters. He has successfully represented two petitioners in immigration appeals in the Ninth Circuit. In both cases, the government agreed to remand on favorable terms rather than oppose the opening briefs.  He currently represents a class of plaintiffs challenging President Trump’s executive order barring admission of citizens from predominantly Muslim countries and suspending entry of refugees from all countries.
