Los Angeles Business Law Attorney in Woodland Hills

Committed To Successful Resolution Of Business Disputes

At the Law Offices of Elliott H. Stone, I am committed to resolving business disputes for my clients in the most efficient way available. In doing so, I draw on my time as a litigator in a wide variety of matters. I know how business dealings go bad and what could have been done on the front end to prevent those problems.

As a Los Angeles business law attorney who knows how disputes play out in litigation and in court, I understand that resolving business and real estate disputes can be expensive and an inefficient use of time. It distracts clients from the essentials of operating their businesses. The best legal approach to disputes is to prevent them from arising through effective business planning.

To help clients do exactly that, I provide them with personalized legal services in a boutique firm setting. As a result, they receive the quality normally associated with large firms, but within an efficient and personalized small-firm environment.

Front-End Lawyering

I incorporate insights from my work as a litigator and trial lawyer into every transactional matter I handle for my clients. By crafting transactional business documentation in that way, I can maximize the likelihood of avoiding disputes in the first place.

When disputes are unavoidable, the transactional work I will have performed for a client is designed to withstand attack strategies employed by opposing counsel. My clients rest easier knowing that their business arrangements have been constructed by a knowledgeable litigator who understands how to avoid the pitfalls that regularly sidetrack operations.

As a business litigator, I have focused my practice on business entity disputes between and among corporations, partnerships, associations and their respective officers, directors, partners, shareholders, and others with whom they have disputes.

I have represented clients in lawsuits, arbitrations and mediations involving:

  • Breach of contract
  • Divorce-related business concerns
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Business ownership disputes
  • Nonpayment for goods or services
  • Defective or nonconforming goods
  • Unfair competition
  • Trade libel
  • Fraudulent practices
  • Wrongful interference with business relationships
  • Franchiser/franchisee disputes
  • Corporate dissolution
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Investor disputes
  • Shareholder actions

My experience includes extensive work with clients who have been operating their ventures with little or no documentation. As a result, I also have a command of the issues those situations present.

For that reason, I can help organizations move forward either when they face a dispute with respect to that lack of paperwork or when they decide to take care of the problem. Companies can work confidently with me to craft the documentation they need to protect their rights and assets.
