Biography

Jean L. Bertrand is a well-regarded strategic litigator and seasoned trial lawyer. Her 37 years of experience includes dozens of jury trials, several arbitrations, and multiple appellate arguments. As an archrival once said, “Jean knows her way around a courtroom.”

As a litigator, Jean is always looking for the winning solution. She focuses her practice primarily on commercial litigation, real estate litigation and toxic torts, drawing on her substantial trial and appellate experience to help her clients achieve successful outcomes. Extensively experienced in the administration of complex litigation, Jean’s clients benefit from her emphasis on cost-containment techniques.

Jean’s enviable record of wins ranges from commercial real estate cases to defenses of asbestos product liability cases to prosecuting insurance coverage cases.

Her peers have recognized her experience and deep bench of knowledge by naming her to leadership positions in the State Bar of California, Commercial Real Estate Women and the American College of Mortgage Attorneys. Jean is a thought leader who has written and spoken on various topics, including alternative fee arrangements and cost-containment solutions.

A founding attorney and former managing partner of Morgenstein & Jubelirer, Jean joined Schiff Hardin in 2007, when the two firms combined.

Jean joined Schiff Hardin when the firm combined with Morgenstein & Jubelirer in 2007.
