Business Litigation & Counseling

At Sanders Roberts, we are guided by the ethos that we succeed when our clients succeed. We understand that our clients are much more than just a book of business. They are real people and real businesses with complex legal problems to resolve. We treat their business issues and legal challenges as if they were our own. To that end, we work closely with our business clients from the outset to the conclusion of every matter to establish an efficient and clearly defined legal strategy – including aggressive litigation when other options have been exhausted.

Our highly experienced business litigators are known for their tenacity, innovation and meticulous preparation throughout the courts and tribunals of California and across the country. We bring big firm experience to bear on all of the matters we confront, with a keen understanding of what the big firm model can accomplish – but also of what it can’t. Our attorneys intentionally walked away from the legal behemoths to create something leaner, more agile, and with a sharper focus on the needs and perspectives of each of our business clients. We provide the same top legal talent, but we deliver it in a way that’s more direct, more effective, and more accessible than ever.
Our attorneys have an intimate understanding of the challenges businesses face in today’s rapidly changing economy. As litigators we never lose sight of the big picture, leaving no stone unturned and no opportunities wasted when crafting a cost efficient and effective legal strategy. And our lawyers actually try cases. While we always seek bottom-line solutions to avoid costly litigation and preserve our clients’ resources and reputations, our clients and adversaries know we have the experience and commitment to go the distance if required. We possess the tools to take any matter to trial and win.
We recognize that every client’s business objectives are unique. With this in mind, we carefully consider all available options when managing cases. Our goal is to resolve disputes in the smartest, most cost-effective and expeditious way, utilizing alternative fee structures that accommodate clients of every size and stripe. We seek to deliver optimal, yet affordable, results.
Ultimately, what drives us at Sanders Roberts is the difference we can make for our clients and our community. We approach every matter with the knowledge that it has the potential to transform our client’s business and change people’s lives. We aim to efficiently resolve each client’s needs from their perspective. In the end, we are dedicated to achieving positive outcomes for our clients, no matter how simple or complex the issues they face.
We fight for the things that matter – in the courtroom, the boardroom, and around the world.
