We represent clients in litigation involving business matters of all kinds including financial services, disputes among co-owners and shareholders, employment, construction, real estate, contract, federal and state securities, tax, unfair business practices, loan workouts, fraud, emotional distress, unfair competition, environmental claims, creditor and related bankruptcy matters, and probate and trust matters. We represent our business clients both as plaintiffs and as defendants.
Our litigation experience includes state and federal trial and appellate courts and governmental agencies. We have handled matters in courts throughout California, as well as other states.
We also practice before alternative dispute resolution services of all kinds. We are very familiar with the limitations imposed in alternative proceedings which may offer significant cost savings but also require litigators to think on their feet because permitted discovery and motions may not be the same as in traditional courts.
Whether a business is sued or needs to file suit to enforce its rights, litigation presents a problem to be solved. We recognize the demands imposed by the litigation process both in terms of cost and in terms of time and energy taken away from the client’s business. The litigation team at Barton Klugman & Oetting LLP is here to solve our client’s problem as efficiently and economically as possible.
