At Gentry Business Law Firm, we provide experienced litigation representation in state and federal courts in California for small, medium and large business.
Our litigation practice spans a broad range of issues, from business and corporate disputes and litigation to appellate work. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants (respondents) in disputes and at trial.
Trials, Negotiation And ADR — Saving Your Business Time And Money
Our attorneys will discuss your goals with you and assess your chances of winning a lawsuit. We may suggest alternative dispute resolution (ADR) when appropriate to the case. ADR typically minimizes conflict between the parties and can be more cost-effective than going to trial.
The litigation process includes numerous steps such as filing a motion with the court, filing a response to the motion, scheduling a hearing, and then discovery proceedings. When necessary, negotiation, mediation or arbitration may take place. In some cases, the plaintiff can obtain a summary judgment, which means the case may be closed without going through a trial.
You can come to our office for litigation or ADR in matters such as:
- Business partnership disputes
- Consumer defense
- Corporate litigation
- Employment defense for employers
- Contract disputes
- Shareholder and partner disputes
- Commercial real estate and lease disputes
- Intellectual property disputes
- Unfair competition
We understand that in addition to expense, a trial can be damaging to the company’s image. We work to keep matters private and protect your business’s reputation throughout the proceedings.
Should trial be necessary, clients can rely on our litigation experience and results-oriented approach to dispute resolution.
