Business Litigation

Business Litigation

In today’s complex business environment, conflict often is unavoidable. Companies and entrepreneurs need an experienced hand to help them avoid disputes before they arise, and to vigorously represent their interests when they do. While every enterprise has its risks, the selection of legal counsel should not be one of them.

For over a half century, our clients — ranging from Fortune 100 multinational corporations to mid- and small-cap companies, partnerships, and entrepreneurs — have turned to Hanson Bridgett’s Business Litigation practice group to resolve their most pressing commercial challenges. They rely on us because we offer things most other law firms do not:

Trial Lawyers, First and Foremost. Our Business Litigation team is comprised of seasoned trial lawyers who maintain an active and respected presence in courts and arbitral forums throughout California. Our trial experience frees clients from the pressure to settle, and allows them to make considered strategic decisions, including whether to take their cases to trial.

Unparalleled Results. We represent both sides, plaintiffs and defendants, in nearly every kind of dispute a company is likely to encounter. This breadth of perspective makes us uncommonly effective — a fact proven by our unparalleled track record of success at the negotiation table and in the courtroom.

Practical Advice. Because of the long-standing relationships we build with our clients, we understand their businesses and provide them with practical, real-world advice. 

Efficient Solutions. Our competitive rate structure, efficient staffing, and advanced technology allow commercial and strategic considerations, not costs, to drive the litigation process. 

On-Call Resources. Whether we are handling a contract dispute or complex consumer class action, we provide our clients with the help they need, when they need it. From proactive counseling to comprehensive litigation and appellate services, we are there at every stage.
