Harmeet Dhillon is a nationally recognized lawyer, trusted boardroom advisor, and passionate advocate for individual, corporate and institutional clients across numerous industries and walks of life. Her focus is in commercial litigation, employment law, First Amendment rights, and election law matters.
From an early interest in constitutional litigation to a stint at the Department of Justice, federal appeals court clerkship, decade of practice at prestigious international law firms, and then founding her own law firm in 2006, Harmeet’s legal career has been marked by a passion for justice, a zeal for attacking legal challenges, and an intense sense of satisfaction in helping her clients realize creative and practical solutions to seemingly intractable problems.
Following a clerkship with the Hon. Paul V. Niemeyer of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, Ms. Dhillon’s practice in New York, London, and the San Francisco Bay Area has focused on federal and state commercial litigation and arbitration, with a particular emphasis on unfair competition/trade secret misappropriation, intellectual property (including trademark litigation and internet torts), complex contractual disputes, and First Amendment litigation (including defamation, trade libel, right of publicity, and anti-SLAPP motions).
Harmeet’s broad experience also encompasses securities, entertainment, employment discrimination and civil rights matters. Ms. Dhillon has developed a niche practice in representing clients across California in election and campaign law matters, ranging from general compliance and ethics representation for partisan and non-partisan contenders to ballot description contests and intellectual property matters pertaining to campaign communications. She is regularly retained by candidates and campaigns for advice on complex legal issues.

I retained Dhillon Law Group to represent me against my former employer (an attorney), who mistreated me and took advantage of me. He misrepresented me as a contract employee (which is now illegal in California) to avoid paying me benefits and wanted to avoid paying taxes. When I asked him to pay me for my sick leave (in San Francisco an employer is legally obligated to pay to his employee for sick leave), he started screaming at me and fired me. I contacted Attorney Harmeet Dhillon and she replied to me almost right away. Harmeet and his Associate, Attorney Michael Fleming were very professional, experienced, knowledgeable, thorough and resolved my case in a very short time to my satisfaction. Harmeet did not mind replying to my million emails. I HIGHLY recommend Harmeet Dhillon and Dhillon Law Group to everyone. You won’t regret it. Thank you very much Harmeet for your hard work.
★★★★★Excellent professional advice that made a huge difference in outcome
I consulted Harmeet for professional advice for legal matters. She promptly suggested that I had a legitimate case and pointed out California status that strengthen my case. Based on her professional advice, I successfully negotiated a large settlement. Without her advice, I would not have negotiated at all. Her advice made a huge difference in final settlement. Her fees were very reasonable for the quality of advice I received.
★★★★★Strong, Savvy, Successful
Harmeet Dhillon is, without a doubt, the most intelligent woman I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I hired her, and it was the best decision I’ve made. My case presented extreme challenges, and she took everything in stride. She gave me strength when I was ready to give up. Her tenaciousness, determination, and ethics produced a fantastic result. I thoroughly enjoyed all communication I had with her, as she is not only insanely knowledgeable, but quick-witted and hilarious, as well. Her professionalism shines through in everything she does, and I have the utmost respect for her. Harmeet is an absolute blessing. I would not have gotten through the agony of my situation without her confidence and loyalty. I will be eternally grateful to her for the rest of my life. I highly recommend her, clearly.
