KNCH Announces Two New Partners

RYAN ANTES received his Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from Cal State University Long Beach in 2006 and graduated from Loyola Law School in 2009.  Prior to obtaining his undergraduate and law degrees, Ryan  served as a Ranger in the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment of the US Army from 1999- 2004, with multiple combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Antes’ practice has focused primarily in the area of  construction litigation, as well as personal injury and casualty defense.  He has primary case handling responsibility for multiple complex construction matters in both southern and northern California. He brings to the table his knowledge and practical experience regarding insurance related issues.  This background and skill set have allowed Ryan to work successfully in  litigating and resolving numerous multiparty cases involving the integration of the underlying facts and findings and conclusions of  expert witnesses with potentially available insurance coverage and non-insurance sources of contribution.  Mr. Antes’ creative and cooperative approach to  providing outstanding service in defending and resolving complex matters makes him an ideal representative of KNCH and its clients.  We are proud to include Ryan Antes in the membership of this firm.


MICHAEL ROSSITER graduated in 2008 from Chapman University School of Law. He is a member of both the California and Utah State bars as well as the Central and Southern Districts of California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Rossiter holds a position as an adjunct professor of civil procedure at Chapman Law School. Since joining KNCH in 2008, Mr. Rossiter’s practice has focused on general civil litigation with most of his cases involving employment and civil rights actions against governmental entities. He has second-chaired two trials and was the lead attorney on a two-plaintiff, 9-day jury trial where he obtained outstanding results for the client. His creative solutions and problem-solving has led to much success, including having numerous cases dismissed on summary judgment. As a partner, Mr. Rossiter’s excellent client service and outstanding results will serve KNCH well as the firm continues to grow and gain in prominence.
