Adam Tamburelli

Adam Tamburelli joined Baron & Budd in March 2020 and is a shareholder in our Class Action Litigation Group’s Los Angeles offices. Mr. Tamburelli chose to dedicate his career to seeking justice for victims of corporate greed after graduating law school in the midst of the late-2000s recession and witnessing the devastating impact that the predatory corporate conduct responsible for the recession had upon the lives of so many people. He has served as lead or co-lead counsel in many national and statewide class action cases against some of the largest corporations and law firms in the country, where he has recovered tens of millions of dollars for consumers and employees through his passionate representation.

A Michigan native, Mr. Tamburelli began his career in Chicago representing plaintiffs in consumer fraud, false advertising, product defect, and environmental class actions, as well as in personal injury and civil rights cases. He also represented professionals, such as physicians, dentists, nurses, insurance producers, and real estate brokers, in professional disciplinary proceedings before state and federal agencies. After moving to California in 2015, Mr. Tamburelli continued his work on behalf of consumers and employees at a prominent plaintiff-side employment litigation firm, leading teams of law firms in the fight against wage theft and other employer misconduct. Mr. Tamburelli also has substantial appellate experience, as he has successfully litigated numerous state and federal appeals.

Mr. Tamburelli earned his law degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law. During law school, he received academic awards and appeared on the Dean’s List multiple times. He also served as a summer law clerk for a district court judge in Michigan and completed an externship with Justice Margaret O’Mara-Frossard of the Illinois Appellate Court.

Mr. Tamburelli’s passion for fighting for individuals is predicated upon his belief in economic and social justice for all and the fact that class actions are often the only check on rapacious corporate malfeasance. In his free time, Mr. Tamburelli can be found in the mountains hiking, watching baseball, and exploring California.
