West Coast Business Law

Practice Areas
Business Litigation
The recent expansion of our practice allows us to meet the needs of our growing Southern California client base, while continuing to satisfy the needs of our clients statewide. The firm will continue to handle litigation matters in all California State and Federal Courts, as well as out of state courts.

The firm handles general business litigation, including breach of contract, commercial collections, employment and discrimination cases, real estate, white-collar fraud, business dissolutions, real estate, zoning, insurance, construction, administrative law, and more.

Business Transactions
We provide high-quality legal services and advice with respect to the formation and financing of new business entities, from small partnerships and limited liability companies to larger corporations. We serve as outside general counsel to a number of companies throughout California, and we take pride in being able to provide a full range of services to our corporate clients. Our transactional practice is focused on drafting business contracts and other documents to ensure that your business deals are accomplished according to the goals you set. We make sure your trade secrets and Intellectual Property are protected, and we take care of your copyright and trademark applications.

Whether your business requires a simple sale of goods contract or more sophisticated agreements for global manufacturing and distribution, or an international software or IP licensing agreement, we provide documents that protect the legal rights of all parties without placing unnecessary legal barriers between you and your customers. We understand that your customers and partners do not want "legalese" in a document to interfere with closing a business deal, and we are sensitive to the need to protect your interests effectively while also creating a document that helps you close the sale.

Employment Practice
We take pride in our Employment Law practice because of our focus on helping employers comply with the complex demands of ever-changing State, Federal and local employment rules and regulations. We strive to keep our clients up-to-date with new developments and improved employment practices in order to prevent employee claims. We offer a complete Human Resources compliance audit, and we have set up complete HR systems for many California businesses. We also provide Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Training as required under California law.

Estate Planning
Finally, we meet the estate planning needs of our entrepreneur clients, including the creation of living trusts and other estate planning strategies that are personally tailored to meet your needs.
