Hagens Berman was founded in 1993 by Steve Berman and Carl Hagens. Initially, it was started in order to take on a case against Jack in the Box related to customers getting E. coli. The law firm the founders worked at turned down the case, so the founders left and started their own firm, Hagens Berman. Two years later, they settled the case for $12 million.

By 2005, the firm had 35 lawyers and five locations.
