The firm’s philosophy and history can be traced to a fortuitous meeting between founding partners John McKasson and Neil Klein in the mid-1990′s when they successfully worked as co-counsel on a large case. Based on the success of that collaboration, they decided to leave their respective law firms to start their own practice together in 1997.
John McKasson had been a successful business trial lawyer in Southern California and Neil Klein had immigrated to the United States from South Africa where he qualified as a solicitor and worked for a well-known shipping law firm based in Johannesburg.
In discussing their plans for the firm that was to become McKasson & Klein, they shared their passion for handling intellectually challenging cases while working with smart lawyers in a friendly environment.
McKasson & Klein carefully selects the most talented and successful attorneys to represent clients both in California and around the world. The partners take pride in the firm consistently and efficiently achieving our clients’ objectives.
