Business Litigation

Pritzker Levine LLP serves as litigation counsel for our business clients in legal proceedings in state and federal court, and before private arbitrators or mediators.  The firm’s attorneys have successfully handled litigation matters for corporate and business clients involving antitrust, breach of contract, shareholder rights, breaches of fiduciary duty, unfair competition, deceptive labeling, false or deceptive advertising, trade libel and other matters.

The firm has an active and successful international business litigation practice.  In the past five years, Pritzker Levine attorneys have successfully tried two cases on behalf of U.S. and European software development company clients, both of which resulted in favorable jury verdicts for the firm’s clients.  The firm currently represents another technology business client in a breach of contract and breach of fiduciary dispute being arbitrated in Los Angeles.  The firm has, in the past few years, successfully represented a number of local business clients in breach of contract actions and other business disputes.  Pritzker Levine also successfully represented a minority shareholder of a privately-held company who was being squeezed out of the business by the majority owner without providing fair value for her shares.
