Catherine Liu


As an attorney with 20 years of litigation experience, I’ve handled all facets of state and federal large-scale business litigation matters including written discovery, depositions, law and motion practice, pre-trial, and trial work with a focus on general business disputes, torts, and real property disputes.

I’ve also represented lenders, investors, and financial institutions in real estate and finance transactions, with a focus on real estate loan documentation, maximizing collection on defaulted loans, commercial acquisitions, dispositions, and leasing.

In addition, I provide legal, business, and public policy advice and solutions in the areas of complex litigation, real estate, consumer fraud, and business tort claims to assist in efficiently and effectively achieving our clients’ objectives.

Prior to joining Weintraub Zolkin Talerico & Selth, I was an attorney with McKenna, Long & Aldridge (now Dentons) and Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley where I managed complex business litigation matters, including product liability, premises liability, intellectual property, construction defect and class action litigation.

I previously served as a judicial extern for the Honorable John F. Walter, Judicial Extern (United States District Court, Central District), the Honorable Robert M. Takasugi (United States District Court, Central District), and the Honorable Owen Lee Kwong (Los Angeles Superior Court, Stanley Mosk).
