Soured relationship: no love lost between yogurt makers

Do you like yogurt?

If so, would you like it as much if you even remotely suspected that chemicals you were ingesting while eating it were also used to exterminate insects or to keep water clean in swimming pools?

Didn't think so.

Business litigation: a demand for tailored, thoughtful advocacy

Sometimes business acrimony and wrongdoing simply cannot be resolved through relatively informal and conflict-muted channels. A phone call between rival business principals won't dampen hostilities. Mediation seems flatly out of the realm of possibility.

In certain instances, a business entity's recourse to formal litigation in a courtroom is the only viable response to the actions of a competitor.

Contractual focus in many vendor/supply agreements: data protection

Does your company have a dispute with a supplier or vendor?

For many businesses in Southern California and across the country, such a reality is hardly singular, given the sheer number of considerations that can arise between disparate commercial entities engaged in a contractual relationship.

We note both the commonplace nature of a business relying on vendors and suppliers and the complexity that can easily attach surrounding expectations and legal obligations. We point out on a page of our website discussing contract dispute resolution the importance of handling a problem involving a contractual partner "in the best way that does not just seek a quick solution, but a lasting one."

Challenges to growing businesses: how a proven law firm can help

Southern California is, in a sense, writ large across myriad dimensions for both many area residents and people elsewhere across the country.

And it is certainly not hard to see way. Many things stand out as "big" in our communities spanning the greater Los Angeles metro area and its surrounding environs, including the San Fernando Valley and Ventura County.

A Trojan war

Ancient Greeks knew the Trojan War as a blend of mythology and real events that included battles over lands and loves. Today, we have our own Trojan war being waged in Los Angeles between the University of Southern California and its fired, former football coach Steve Sarkisian.

Sarkisian was dismissed in October by USC Athletic Director Pat Haden. In a lawsuit filed last month, the former head coach of the Trojans said USC breached the contract it had with him and that the school discriminated against him on the basis of his disability (alcoholism).
