When Failure Isn’t An Option, Krogh & Decker is Your Counselor and Crusader

In 2014, Shawn M. Krogh and Derek C. Decker founded Krogh & Decker, LLP, to handle California's premier businesses' litigation and transactional needs. Today, we are proud to be the first-rate law firm for those for whom failure is not an option.

Our firm helps business owners and startups launch new initiatives, fund ongoing activities, and avoid litigation by providing legal counsel and advice.

We are approached for our agile and pragmatic mindset. We are battle-hardened, but we wear it well. If you come to us looking for war, we will fight the war with a nimble and nuanced solution.

We understand how to assess cases at the early stages of litigation and provide appropriate liability assessments and budgets. Our firm is knowledgeable in preparing legal strategies that are effective, efficient, and lean.

Non-Litigation Work

Our non-litigation work includes business formation, contract drafting, mergers and acquisitions, trademark filings, employee agreements; business succession planning, and day to day legal advice for business owners. We understand that for businesses to be successful they need to plan ahead. Our firm prides itself in providing advice and counsel that will prevent litigation.

We’re Versatile and Veracious

We know how demanding running a business can be. You deal with enough stressors and smoke and mirrors; that's why we don't waver on our commitment to you. When you approach us, we don't give you off-the-cuff advice, we craft a blunt, but researched, solution that outperforms your expectations.

We Give You Our Time Because We Care About Yours

A lot of terms come to mind when you think of attorneys: Opinionated. Educated. Argumentative. Risk-averse. Well-dressed.

Sure, we embody all of those adjectives. But when you think of Krogh & Decker, LLP, we really want one word to come to mind:


Sometimes, expertise lies in the intangibles. And that's where we differentiate ourselves. Our charisma, communication, and commitment to client care ensure we exceed your expectations.
