Jarod is a Harvard Law School graduate and a former federal appellate clerk. He resides in Rancho Santa Fe and has a national and global practice.
Jarod has represented global clients in a wide variety of antitrust and competition matters, including issues arising from intellectual property disputes or settlements, agreements among competitors (i.e. price-fixing, market allocation, and group boycotts), merger and acquisition transactions, resale-price maintenance programs, Noerr-Pennington, state-action immunity, labor-exemption, real estate, and government investigations.
Jarod has also represented clients in many business and real estate litigation disputes, including, for example, cases involving trade secrets and intellectual property, breach-of-contract, fraud and misrepresentation, tortious interference, malicious prosecution, RICO, and unfair and deceptive trade practices and securities. He frequently publishes and speaks on antitrust and competition developments.
So why did an antitrust attorney join Compass? Good question.
Over the last decade, while real estate markets were collapsing, Jarod and his wife invested in real estate, mostly rentals and flips. Jarod then decided to create a law firm that targets real estate investors in California and focuses on real estate transactions, among other issues that real estate investors might find useful. Jarod has built a strong client base of real estate investors, including developers.
