San Francisco, CA, USA


Howard Slavitt specializes in real estate, trust and estate, and other complex commercial litigation matters. He counsels fiduciaries and also represents them in litigation involving alleged breaches of fiduciary and professional duties. He also prosecutes and defends intellectual property disputes, including trade secrets, patent, trademark and copyright litigation.

Howard has significant experience related to family business disputes (often with real estate holdings) and in trust and estate litigation. Because these cases often become emotionally charged matters, Howard works closely with his clients to ensure their goals are achieved effectively, efficiently, and privately.

In addition to these areas, Howard has broad experience in general business disputes and in defending consumer class actions, unfair business practices and California Proposition 65 litigation. Howard also often represents clients in appeals.

Howard currently serves as Co-Chair of the Bar Association of San Francisco’s Estate Planning, Probate and Trust - Litigation Subsection. He is a member of the California State Bar, the American Bar Association, and the Bar Association of San Francisco.

For more than 15 years, Howard has provided pro bono services to low-income individuals as a volunteer and member of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area. He has also prosecuted pro bono appeals in the Ninth Circuit and the California Courts of Appeal.

Howard received his undergraduate degree in history summa cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley (1985) and his master's degree in cinema production from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles (1989).  He earned his law degree magna cum laude from Harvard University (1994) where he was also a general editor and executive editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review.
