San Francisco, CA. (October 9, 2018) — Bullivant Houser Bailey PC is pleased to announce that Keith R. Gillette has joined the firm's Casualty Law Practice Group as a partner in their growing San Francisco, California office. Prior to joining Bullivant, Keith was an attorney with a California-based complex litigation and transactions law firm.

Keith's focus is trial practice encompassing admiralty, transportation, product liability, intellectual property, and large-exposure tort litigation. His first-chair trial experience covers both state and federal courts throughout California and Nevada. His trial and arbitration experience extends to catastrophic bodily injury at sea and ashore, land transportation, property loss claims, unfair competition claims, intellectual property, defective consumer and industrial products, and contract disputes.

"We are thrilled to have Keith join Bullivant," said John R. Osburn, leader of the firm's Casualty Law Practice Group. "Keith has more than 20 years of litigation experience handling complex civil cases and brings a unique perspective to the practice of law as a degreed engineer with a decade of experience in the field of Marine Engineering. He will be a tremendous asset as we continue to service our admiralty and maritime clients locally in the Bay Area as well as nationally."

Keith received his J.D. from University of San Francisco School of Law and earned a B.S. from U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, New York which gives him a valued perspective to the practice of law. His time at sea as a senior engineering officer aboard U.S.-flagged vessels provides a breadth of experience he brings to the courtroom.

Keith has been recognized by Martindale-Hubbell with its Client Distinction Award, an exclusive recognition given to only the top 1% of practicing attorneys.
