Navigating and Resolving Complex Business Conflicts

Carr McClellan’s Business Litigation group works with clients to develop a focused, pragmatic, and results-oriented approach to litigation, with the singular goal of obtaining successful outcomes for our clients.  Since 1945, we have established an outstanding record of success trying and winning complex business disputes in federal and state courts and arbitration forums throughout California and the United States.

Our attorneys have the expertise to litigate the broad range of disputes our clients encounter in today’s complex business world.  We regularly defend and prosecute our clients’ intellectual property rights through trademark, copyright, and trade secret litigation.  We represent clients in contract, business tort, and unfair business practices litigation, as well as shareholder, partnership, bankruptcy, insurance, and product liability claims.  Our clients also call upon us to represent them in litigation and regulatory actions relating to employment practices and wage and hour claims.

We have comprehensive knowledge of industries that are key to California’s diverse economy.  Our clients range from multi-national corporations to closely-held private companies to emerging enterprises in the semiconductor, software, and e-commerce industries.  Industries we regularly serve include real estate and construction; food and beverage; commercial and industrial manufacturing and distribution; and consumer investment products.

Resolution short of trial often best achieves our clients’ business objectives, and we work diligently to identify early dispute resolution opportunities.  Many of our attorneys serve as pro tem judges, arbitrators and mediators which allows us to bring a unique and critical perspective to our clients’ advantage.

Our commitment to client service is best demonstrated by the long-term relationships we share with many of our clients.  The interests of our clients are at the heart of our business and we meet our professional obligations with integrity and respect for our clients, our people, and the communities in which we work and live.
