Will Small was Senior Counsel with a national law firm and the largest law office in San Diego when he decided to partner with John Schena to form Small & Schena LLP.
As an attorney, Will’s goal is to provide his clients with the one-on-one attention they deserve – while still enjoying the same expertise and experience of an attorney with a large law firm.
Will’s practice focuses on business and employment litigation. His business litigation experience includes cases involving contract disputes, shareholder derivative actions, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, California’s Unfair Competition Law, California and federal franchise laws, class actions, trademark, copyright, the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act, products liability, breach of warranty, and other forms of commercial litigation.
In the employment arena, Will has represented plaintiffs and defendants in harassment, retaliation, wage and hour violations, discrimination, and other claims.
Will additionally handles defamation-related matters and professional liability litigation. He has prosecuted and defended claims against attorneys, real estate professionals, corporate officers and directors, financial advisors, insurance professionals, and others.
Will serves as Chair of the San Diego County Bar Association’s Civil Litigation Executive Committee and is active in other legal organizations in the community.
Although he concentrates his practice on litigation, Will also advises clients on various legal issues ranging from contract to compliance with consumer protection and franchise laws – with the goal of helping them avoid litigation entirely.
