Knox Ricksen LLP has moved its Northern California office to Walnut Creek, California. After decades of being known as an Oakland-based law firm, Knox Ricksen joins a growing number of law firms moving their practices to Walnut Creek, an East Bay hub just fifteen minutes east of Oakland. Walnut Creek features an active downtown area with “hundred-year-old buildings, extensive high-end retail establishments, restaurants, and entertainment venues.” “Even though we have a tremendous amount of litigation in Southern California, we are a Northern California based firm and it made sense to find a location where we can centralize the handling of our health care fraud and mass tort operations, yet maintain our traditional local practice in Northern California,” says Managing Partner Thomas E. Fraysse. “With Walnut Creek as our base of operations and with our Southern California office conveniently located in downtown Los Angeles, we are able to handle litigation throughout the State of California.”
Knox Ricksen LLP provides consulting and litigation services to entities and individuals who have been victimized by fraudulent activities specializing in Insurance Code section 1871.7 qui tam and federal False Claims Act (31 U.S.C. sections 3729-3733), imposing liability on persons who defraud governmental programs; maintains an active Mass Tort practice representing injured persons in consumer product and pharmaceutical claims; and a Personal Injury and Wrongful Death practice, representing individuals in claims and litigation whose lives have been changed forever by tragic deaths or severe injuries caused by negligence or the intentional acts of others.
