Lora Krsulich represents plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation across the United States. She has won courtroom battles and helped secure multi-million-dollar settlements for her clients, who range from large corporations to small businesses and individuals.
Equally as diverse as her client roster is the legal areas in which Lora is experienced. She has handled cases related to intellectual property, False Claims Act, fraud, insurance, and shareholders & securities. No matter the subject, Lora instills trust in her team and clients by confidently tackling complex subject matter and translating it into compelling arguments to her audience.
Lora and a team from Susman Godfrey previously represented relators in their California False Claims Act suit against a large construction contractor in California State Court. Taking the lead on depositions of the contractor’s project managers, business managers, and experts and drafting a successful motion for summary adjudication, Lora was instrumental in securing a favorable settlement for the relators.
Lora served as counsel to antenna technology company and repeat Susman Godfrey client, Fractus SA, in a patent infringement case against ZTE Corp. Traversing the globe, Lora handled key depositions, both in the United States and abroad, and then briefed and won a motion to compel ZTE’s sales data and an opposition to a motion to strike. Fractus later agreed to settle its claims for a multi-million-dollar settlement.
Lora joined Susman Godfrey after working as a law clerk to Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and to Judge Philip S. Gutierrez on the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
She graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law in 2016, where she served as editor-in-chief of the California Law Review and co-chair of Berkeley Law’s First-Generation Professionals group.
Before law school, Lora worked as a senior policy advisor for the Office of Prisoner Reentry in Newark, New Jersey, where she won and managed more than $7 million in federal and private grants.
When not working, Lora enjoys spending time at the beach with her husband and two-year-old son, William.
