Business Litigation Group

Business Litigation Group

Musick Peeler’s business litigation attorneys have been preeminent in California for decades. The Business Litigation Group represents clients in a wide variety of business and corporate litigation matters, ranging from simple contract disputes to class-action defense and other complex multi-party commercial disputes. Our attorneys have a long track record of success in jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, and appeals with superior results for our clients.

Our Business Litigation Group represents a full panoply of business and commercial clients including publicly traded, Subchapter S closely held, and non-profit companies, partnerships, and limited liability companies. Our clients are leaders in numerous key industries, including construction, communications and media, financial services, information systems, manufacturing, printing/graphic arts, real estate, technology, transportation, chemical, oil/gas, and professional services.

We offer a depth of experience in federal and state courts as well as arbitration panels. We have an excellent reputation with the courts and our legal colleagues. We have years of proven success in complex, multi–party, high exposure cases such as lender liability, shareholder disputes, corporate governance, unfair competition, contract and lease disputes, real estate, construction, trusts, and fair credit reporting.

We recognize that, in a global economy, clients’ interests involve matters in domestic and international courts. We handle such disputes and work closely with experts and our network of international resources. The group also includes attorneys who are active in several other Musick Peeler practice groups, including construction, intellectual property, white collar, environmental, and consumer credit/privacy.

In addition to actively litigating cases, our business litigation attorneys counsel clients regarding strategies for avoidance of liability in these areas. We focus first on understanding client business philosophies and business objectives in any legal dispute. We listen and apply those objectives to potential litigation budgets, analysis of adverse claims and parties, and applicable insurance coverage. We direct our efforts to early and cost effective resolution recognizing that our overburdened courts involve expense with unavoidable delays. When you contact us we will place the highest priority on responding to your legal issues.
