Adjunct Professor Randall Farrimond is the principal of the Farrimond Law Offices in San Francisco, a commercial litigation firm which focuses upon technology, intellectual property, media and aviation litigation. Before forming his own firm, Professor Farrimond practiced litigation in these areas for twenty years as an associate and partner at Lillick & Charles, where he was a member of the firm's Management Committee, and as a partner at Steinhart & Falconer. Professor Farrimond has tried numerous cases in both state and federal courts, including a number of jury trials of several weeks to several months in length. Most recently, he won an $11 million verdict for the victims of a helicopter crash after a three-month jury trial in Alameda County.
Professor Farrimond earned his law degree from Stanford University in 1980, a masters degree in mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley in 1977, and two undergraduate degrees in 1974, one in mathematics and the other in philosophy, from his home state school, the University of Oklahoma. He has been a member of the faculty for the trial advocacy programs at Stanford University Law School and at the University of San Francisco Law School. He has previously been a guest lecturer on Internet law at Hastings College of the Law.
Apart from his legal career, Professor Farrimond is a director and past President of Eldergivers, a non-profit organization which trains volunteers to visit the isolated elderly and which also conducts art classes at care facilities throughout the Bay Area. Professor Farrimond has two daughters, ages 14 and 12, who believe that they may be interested in becoming lawyers themselves if their anticipated careers as pop music divas don't pan out. They all enjoy playing in and attending sporting events of various kinds.
