A top trial lawyer and business advisor, Charles S. Kramer’s practice covers all aspects of business representation, including business trial work and litigation, general business counseling, and transactional work and negotiation. Charles has successfully tried cases of all magnitudes, and is known for obtaining successful results for both plaintiffs and defendants. His trial work includes construction, contract, employment, copyright, trademark, trade secret, securities, unfair competition, right of privacy and publicity, constitutional law, business tort, antitrust and sports law cases.

His persuasive abilities were showcased in Resnik v Blue Cross, a case in which his plaintiff’s verdict was upheld by the Appeals Court but described as the outermost boundaries by which a case may be proven solely by circumstantial evidence.
