Tyson & Mendes LLP Names Two San Diego-based Partners

SAN DIEGO (May 25, 2017) – Insurance defense law firm Tyson & Mendes LLP today promoted attorneys Cayce Lynch and Dan Fallon to partners in the firm’s San Diego headquarters.

“Cayce and Dan have been invaluable to the Tyson & Mendes team,” said Managing Partner Robert Tyson. “Both have a long track record of achieving exceptional, efficient results and winning cases for our clients, and will continue to do so as our newest partners.”

Lynch previously served as special counsel in Tyson & Mendes’ San Diego office, focusing primarily on general liability and commercial litigation, while partnering with defense litigation teams within the firm on cases involving complex issues, catastrophic injury, or potential high exposure.

In addition to her case work, Lynch leads the firm’s Client Services Department and chairs its Women’s Initiative and Young Professionals Group. She regularly presents CE and MCLE updates on California law, including the landmark Howell v. Hamilton Meats decision and its progeny, to insurance professionals across the U.S., and currently serves on the national CLM Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee. Lynch earned her J.D. cum laude from the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Fallon also works out of Tyson & Mendes’ San Diego office, serving as senior counsel before being named partner. He specializes in professional liability, personal injury, general commercial liability and business litigation, and has significant experience developing and executing litigation strategies to the benefit of individual and corporate clients.  He leads a multi-attorney litigation team and handles civil litigation across all of California.

Outside the practice of law, Fallon is a trustee for a foundation supporting nonprofit organizations throughout the country. He is also a barrister with the American Inn of Court, Hon. William B. Enright Chapter, and previously served on the board of directors for San Diego Defense Lawyers. Fallon attended Hamilton College in upstate New York and worked at a multi-national law firm on Wall Street before obtaining his law degree at the University of San Diego School of Law.
