Ben Siminou

Singleton Schreiber McKenzie & Scott, LLP (“SSMS”), is pleased to announce that award-winning appellate attorney Benjamin I. Siminou has joined the firm as a senior partner. Ben will co-lead the firm’s newly created Appellate/Law & Motion practice group.

Ben brings extensive appellate experience to the firm, with victories in the California Supreme Court, California Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, and Nebraska Supreme Court. Ben is perhaps best known for T.H. v. Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, a landmark victory for consumers of pharmaceutical drugs in the California Supreme Court. For his work in Novartis, the Pound Civil Justice Institute in Washington, D.C., awarded Ben its 2018 “Appellate Advocacy Award,” a national honor that recognizes “excellence in appellate advocacy in America.”

In addition to his appellate practice, Ben handles complex law-and-motion work in high-stakes cases throughout the United States, with an extraordinarily high winning percentage against the biggest defendants. In 2020 alone, Ben defeated motions for summary judgment in cases with aggregate damages at stake in excess of $60 million.

Ben joins a powerhouse legal roster at SSMS — a plaintiffs’ and criminal-defense “super-firm” that offers a breadth and depth of services unrivaled nationwide. Collectively, the firm’s expertise spans all areas of complex litigation, from pretrial through appeal, leveling the playing field against the biggest defendants and providing greater access to justice for regular people who are often overpowered, outspent, and marginalized by large insurance companies, major corporations, and powerful government entities.

The trial and appellate lawyers of SSMS bring to bear decades of experience in:

  • Serious Personal Injury;
  • Wrongful Death;
  • Mass Torts;
  • Wildfire Litigation;
  • Civil Rights;
  • Medical Malpractice;
  • White Collar and Federal Criminal Defense;
  • Law-and-Motion Work; and
  • Appeals/Writs.

The attorneys at SSMS have recovered over $1 billion in verdicts and settlements in the past decade alone and secured dozens of not-guilty verdicts for the wrongly accused.
