Business Litigation

Jones & Lester, LLP provides exceptional legal services for clients involved in business litigation in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. In addition to our expertise in corporate and business transactional law, our attorneys are experienced trial advocates for clients whose transactional matters have resulted in legal disputes. Our litigation success is the product of decades of trial experience, an uncompromising work ethic, and an ability to find innovative and cost-effective solutions.

Our attorneys each have decades of business litigation experience. We offer clients comprehensive representation for a wide range of business litigation matters, including:

  • Property Damage
  • Securities
  • Contract Law
  • Computer Matters
  • Earth Movement
  • Insurance Coverage
  • Unfair Competition
  • Unfair Trade Practices
  • Antitrust Law
  • Real Estate Law
  • Creditors' Rights
  • Environmental Law
  • Insolvency Proceedings

Business litigation can be especially costly considering the complexity commonly involved in business contracts and other dealings, as well as the vast legal resources available to the large entities that are often embroiled in these disputes. While Jones & Lester is capable of handling complex commercial litigation involving large corporate parties, we are also an invaluable resource for the small business client facing a seemingly insurmountable legal foe. Our philosophy behind every client representation is to seek solutions offering efficient and favorable results.

Along with our years of extensive practice before state and federal trial courts, we represent clients in hearings before arbitration, administrative, and regulatory agencies, and in other alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including mediation. At Jones & Lester, we always consider the high costs of litigation when advising our clients and acting on their behalf. When advising a client at every stage of the litigation process, we carefully consider the client's budget and the magnitude of the claim, offering individually-tailored solutions that are cost-effective.

Despite our willingness and exceptional ability to seek cost-effective solutions outside the courtroom, some clients have business disputes that cannot be resolved without trial. When a case cannot be settled, we retain our cost-effective approach to client support, moving the case to trial as promptly as court calendars permit. Our reputation for creative and aggressive trial work usually provides our clients the choice between trial or a satisfactory settlement.

Employment Litigation

At Jones & Lester, our attorneys also have significant experience in employment cases involving harassment and discrimination. Along with representing employers accused of sexual harassment or failing to protect employees from such conduct, we have expertise in defending clients against discrimination claims based on race, gender, and age grounds. Our attorneys have experience litigating claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. We also handle actions brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, as well as state administrative agencies and workers' compensation boards.
