Complex Business and Corporate Litigation
We are first and foremost winning trial lawyers. We have obtained decisive, multi-million dollar jury verdicts, bench trials and settlements on behalf of our business clients in matters involving joint venture disputes, shareholder disputes, real property disputes, intellectual property disputes, commercial security disputes, lender liability disputes, statutory violations, breach of fiduciary duty, bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings and construction related disputes, among many other areas. We have managed and won numerous multi-party, high stakes trials involving millions of dollars in dispute.
We are able to offer our clients the best possible legal team available, in that we bring a wealth of combined experience in key areas of the law.
Cross-Border Litigation and ADR
Notably, we are experts in dealing with foreign companies and parties (Asia and Latin America) in that we possess both the language capabilities as well as the keen awareness of cultural issues, which often can be the determining factor in achieving a victory. We have often been selected as the “go-to” attorneys for numerous high-profile multinational clients, who require attorneys who are capable of understanding and communicating the nuances of business practices, processes and issues beyond our national borders.
We regularly advise our Latin American clients on American legal disputes, whether negotiating a settlement to the dispute prior to litigation or litigating the dispute together with local co-counsel. We also are equipped to handle commercial disputes before the Mexican courts.
Intellectual Property Enforcement and Defense
We assist our clients in protecting their intellectual property rights by enforcing and defending intellectual property infringement actions, including trademark, copyright, and patent infringement claims in various jurisdictions. The Firm also has successfully litigated unfair competition lawsuits, and trade secret and idea misappropriation claims before California courts.
