Commercial Litigation Partner Joins Troutman Sanders’ Orange County Office


ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. – Eudeen Chang has joined Troutman Sanders LLP as a partner in the firm’s Business Litigation practice in the Orange County office. Chang was previously a shareholder at Greenberg Traurig, LLP.

Chang is a commercial litigator who specializes in real estate and hospitality, contracts, partnership, and employment litigation. He also advises clients on real estate transactions, corporate structure, formation and governance. As general counsel for several Chinese businesses, Chang, who is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, is able to bridge the cultural gap and effectively assist clients with both their U.S. litigation and transactional needs.

“Eudeen’s strong litigation background and breadth of experience, effectively serving as general counsel for Chinese businesses and individuals, enhances our diverse litigation practice,” said Bill Withrow, chair of the firm’s Business Litigation Department.

“We welcome Eudeen to our growing Orange County office,” said Larry Cerutti, Orange County managing partner. “His full range of litigation experience and interest in cross-team collaboration will benefit the firm’s clients both in the courtroom and boardroom.”

“Troutman Sanders’ team-oriented approach and particular expertise in litigation and real estate pair well with my practice, and I look forward to partnering with my new colleagues in a way that provides the most value to our clients,” Chang said.

Chang earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his J.D. from UCLA.
