Robert K. Renner
Robert Renner is a partner in Barger & Wolen LLP’s Newport Beach office. He has been with the firm for nearly 20 years, joining the firm as a summer associate during law school.
His expertise includes all aspects of business litigation - with a particular emphasis on insurance coverage work - in both state and federal courts, from the initiation of the lawsuit through any appeal.
Mr. Renner’s insurance-related practice primarily involves individual and group insurance contract disputes, but he has handled cases arising in virtually all areas of life, health and disability law. In particular, he has developed substantial experience in handling ERISA-governed litigation.
In addition to handling countless cases in the United States District Courts in the Central, Southern and Northern Districts of California, Mr. Renner has litigated several cases in the state and federal courts of Nevada and in the federal court of Arizona. Admitted to practice in all courts within the state of California, he is also admitted to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Having obtained an undergraduate degree in journalism, Mr. Renner’s background has both influenced and enhanced his practice of law, particularly with respect to his writing style and overall work product.
