Nobody wants to be sued. That said, it’s basically become a sign of success for businesses in California. The more visible your business is the more traction that’s created. That leaves the door open for the chance to find yourself involved in litigation.

When you come to our law firm with a case that may wind up in the litigation process, we will explain the following:

  • The legal expense in pursuing/defending a claim is nearly impossible for a business to control and can become a “black hole” financially.
  • The hidden cost of litigation can often become a larger issue than attorney’s fees or costs.
  • Losing litigation is always a risk and that as the case grows in nature, so too does the possibility that the existence of your business become threatened.

Time and time again, we’ve seen litigation completely sap the energy, creativity, and time of key personnel who find themselves entrenched in the struggles of the case. If you happen to know anyone who’s gone through litigation, they’d probably compare the process to war. In our extensive experience as litigators, we regularly see both the winning and losing party completely wiped out at the conclusion of a trial.


In addition to consulting on virtually every issue that threatens a business, we are a full-service business litigation firm. Whether you work with Robert. L. Shipley or Brandon S. Gray, you can feel confident knowing that you’re in the best of hands. Don’t forget that Mr. Shipley was named one of San Diego’s top lawyers in 2016.

From the moment you contact us to the point that your case is resolved, we will work with you in a successful, professional manner. That could mean exploring early settlement, engaging in arbitration and/or aggressively pursuing claims through trial and appeal in court.
