About me

A corporate and business litigator for more than thirty years, John Howard has distinguished himself both at trial and in his ability to successfully short-circuit major lawsuits through the skillful use of early motions.  He has handled more than one hundred cases though trial, mediation, arbitration and dismissal throughout his career.

In 1986, Mr. Howard became general counsel of one of San Diego’s largest and most successful privately held companies, parlaying his litigation skills to implement loss mitigation and insurance programs that not only resulted in reducing claims and preventing litigation but, also, substantially reducing insurance costs and fees to outside lawyers by more than one million dollars.

He brought his experience in litigating major corporate disputes to the skill of corporate governance, negotiating and drafting contracts and addressing corporate and regulatory compliance issues.  He instituted policies that successfully minimized the risk of litigation and reduced legal claims by 80%.

Mr. Howard served in that capacity until 1995 when he returned to private practice, establishing JW Howard/Attorneys to bring his combination of major corporate transactional experience and litigation skill to other companies.  Since that time he has assisted dozens of companies in creating structures that prevent claims; efficiently litigating those that cannot be avoided and negotiating protective agreements that mean disputes never arise.
