Our business acumen and winning record are the hallmarks of our litigation practice, emphasizing business & commercial litigation, including business torts and trade secrets, employment, insurance, civil rights, public entity, and attorneys’ fees litigation. Our attorneys are licensed to represent clients and practice law in all state courts and federal districts of California and Hawaii,  during all pre-trial and trial stages, in administrative proceedings, and in alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as mediation, arbitration and early neutral evaluation.

Our breadth of experience and compact size provide clients with a legal team that is effective and nimble enough to accomplish the client’s objective efficiently, without the high administrative costs and layered staffing structures that can constrain a client’s resources.
