Complex Business Litigation

World-Class Trial Attorneys in California Business Disputes

Callahan & Blaine's business litigation practice reflects the firm's commitment to client service and outstanding results across a wide range of litigation problems — employment disputes, trade secrets violations, ownership issues, and shareholders' rights. We've been working toward building the ideal civil trial practice since we opened our doors in 1984, and complex business litigation has formed the central core of our work at every step of the way.

Now with more than 20 trial lawyers who have concentrated experience in a wide variety of legal disciplines, our law firm offers business litigants an impressive set of credentials and client service values.

Complex Business Litigation Across the Full Spectrum of Business Disputes

At Callahan & Blaine, we discourage our commercial and corporate litigation clients from thinking in terms of their roles as plaintiffs or defendants. Most of the cases we handle involve counterclaims, cross-claims and third-party practice; what might have begun as a contract action against your company might be dwarfed by the antitrust or fraud claims you can pursue against one or more opponents.

To learn how you can benefit from the experience and focus of Callahan & Blaine's business litigation practice, contact us in Santa Ana. Our law firm represents corporate, professional and entrepreneurial clients of all sizes: multi-national, Fortune 500 companies, California-based corporations, medium and small businesses, homeowners associations, and employers and individuals engaged in business. Our ability to integrate outstanding trial skills with sophisticated litigation strategy and resourceful dispute resolution tactics can make the winning difference in your company's contract, corporate or business tort case.

Our lawyers practice in the state and federal courts, before administrative and regulatory tribunals of all kinds, and at all levels of appeal. Callahan & Blaine's experience and focus have led to favorable settlements or verdicts in all of the civil disputes we've handled since 1984. In one case, we won the largest jury verdict in Orange County history — $934 million. In another, we settled an employment class action for $38 million.

For more than 25 years, civil trial practice has been the primary focus of our work. Now with more than 20 trial lawyers, every attorney we hire has demonstrated outstanding trial skills before joining Callahan & Blaine, and can handle critical roles in complex or high-stakes litigation.
