In his first two years of practice, Mr. Campbell played a significant role in two important trials. In a 2016 business disparagement trial that made national news, he examined witnesses, argued motions, and drafted briefs resulting in a jury verdict that, with interest added, totaled $7.8 million for the firm’s client. In 2015, Mr. Campbell argued the charge conference, drafted motions, and assisted with witness preparation in the successful defense of a $120 million claim for harassment and discrimination, in which a federal jury unanimously found the client not liable.
Building on this initial experience, Mr. Campbell has since been lead counsel on an attorneys’ fees bench trial and has delivered opening statements and examined witnesses in arbitration.
Outside of trial, Mr. Campbell’s practice has encompassed a wide variety of civil litigation. Representative examples of his experience include drafting briefs and motions in commercial litigation, deposing witnesses in patent and construction disputes, and successfully handling employment and real estate matters. In 2017, Mr. Campbell successfully excluded an opposing party’s expert after deposing the expert, drafting the motion to exclude, and arguing the motion in court. In 2018, Mr. Campbell successfully defended a motion for summary judgment on an eight-figure claim, in which he primarily drafted the briefing and argued the defense at the summary judgment hearing.
A Harvard Law grad, Mr. Campbell was an article editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology in law school and volunteered as a student attorney at the Harvard Prison Legal Assistance Project.
Prior to law school, Mr. Campbell served as a paralegal in the Boston office of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts, where he assisted in False Claims Act investigations and litigation.
Mr. Campbell is also a graduate of the College of Holy Cross and completed intensive post-graduate Mandarin language training at National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan.
