Our Commercial Litigation Approach

We have found that optimum litigation and trial results are achieved through careful planning and strategy. We work with our commercial litigation clients to set reasonable budgets and timelines for litigation goals. This includes focused discovery efforts and summary judgment filings if appropriate. Many commercial cases involve breach of contract claims, theft of trade secrets and violations of the Business and Professions code. We have a thorough understanding of the relevant law related to these claims. As such, we staff cases more efficiently than many larger law firms. We typically staff business litigation matters with one partner and one or two associates to eliminate duplicative billing entries that plague many commercial litigants. There are no unqualified or inexperienced attorneys working at our firm. We don’t train or babysit on your dollar.

As a commercial litigation law firm, we have represented the following entities:

  • Real Estate Investment Funds
  • Hedge Funds and Hedge Fund owners
  • Public companies such as Jerrick Media
  • Talented entertainers such as Julia Roberts and Jared Leto
  • Internet Marketing Companies
  • Travel and Leisure Brands including international hotel chains
  • Web and Software Development Companies
  • Video game publishers such as Game on Enterprises from Sweden
  • Juvederm beauty products
  • Movie and commercial production studios
  • Law firms and law partners
  • Professional service providers such as Optima Tax Relief

As experienced trial lawyers, we understand how to focus on the relevant facts and evidence to guide your case through the legal process in the most efficient manner possible. We routinely prevail in trials where millions of dollars are at stake.
