Breach of Contract: After the owner of a shopping center began charging excessive Common Area Maintenance (CAM) fees to one of its tenants, sought declaratory relief to deem the charges as outside the scope of the lease. The court granted summary judgment in favor of the tenant, finding that the owner’s interpretation of the lease was incorrect as a matter of law.
Consumer Class Action Defense: Multiple plaintiffs brought a class action against a nationwide retailer of consumer electronics for alleged violations of the California Unfair Competition Law (UCL) and Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA). The plaintiffs alleged that the retailer had violated California Civil Code §1749.5 by printing “Not Redeemable for Cash” on the back of its gift cards. Persuaded the court to find that the CLRA claim had no merit and, thereafter, defeated class certification on multiple grounds.
Entertainment: After a visiting Swedish rapper brutally murdered a pedestrian in Hollywood, represented the decedent’s family in a wrongful death action. Under a theory of collateral estoppel, leveraged the criminal conviction to obtain a $5M judgment on behalf of the family.
National Origin and Gender Discrimination Class Action: Plaintiffs brought a national origin and gender discrimination class action against a Fortune 100 company. They alleged that the company had discriminated against minorities and women with respect to all aspects of employment, including recruiting, testing, hiring, initial assignments, promotions, and compensation. Conducted rigorous discovery on behalf of the company, forcing the plaintiffs to drop many of their claims, which resulted in a significant reduction in the size of the class and, ultimately, settlement.
Toxic Tort: Defended a manufacturing company in a toxic tort claim involving the lung disease bronchiolitis obliterans. Through strategic discovery, was able to prevail on summary judgment, saving the client millions of dollars in potential exposure.
