Ms. Semmer’s business litigation experience focuses on complex litigation contexts, including breach of contract, business tort claims, non-competition and non-solicitation litigation, and securities fraud.

At all times, Ms. Semmer’s litigation philosophy is the same:  Understand the client’s litigation goals and business realities; work to identify the strengths and mitigate the weaknesses of each case at the outset; and resolve cases creatively, efficiently, and pragmatically – be it through early resolution or ongoing litigation.  As a result, Ms. Semmer has established a reputation for excellence and cultivated strong and lasting relationships with her clients.

A San Diego native, Ms. Semmer attended college and law school in the Midwest.  In law school, Ms. Semmer was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Dispute Resolution, one of the leading legal publications in the area of alternative dispute resolution. Ms. Semmer also received CALI Excellence for the Future Awards for earning the highest grade in the following classes:
