Representative Matters

  • Represented sports apparel manufacturer and approximately one dozen retailers in a jury trial in the Central District of California in a Lanham Act case. The matter was resolved prior to closing arguments.

  • Represented a plaintiff shareholder of a corporation that was refusing to recognize the client’s voting rights and was additionally about to make a vote on an organic change to the company’s business. With only one day to prepare, we successfully moved for a temporary restraining order preventing the shareholder’s meeting from going forward. The company later acknowledged the client’s shares and further issued him a promissory note.

  • Defended a chief operating officer in a suit involving a set of 30 individual civil actions and one national class-action case that followed a criminal prosecution of some corporation’s officers & directors. The allegations were that the company marketed a dietary supplement as an all-natural herbal product for over-all prostate health, but that in reality, the product was allegedly a combination of numerous pharmaceuticals, including the banned pharmaceutical DES. After years of acrimonious litigation, which resulted in one of the plaintiff's attorneys being criminally charged and eventually disbarred in part because of his conduct concerning the matters, all of the cases as they related to the client were amicably resolved prior to trial.
