Business Litigation

At Spital & Associates, our civil litigation practice  includes both trial ans appellate work that is tailored to you our client. With over 39 years of experience, our Managing Attorney Sam Spital both quickly and efficiently analyzes all of the facts, issues, risks,and  alternatives to and exposures of litigation. As your San Diego business litigation attorneys, we have the knowledge, insight and expertise to determine when mediation, arbitration, mini-trials, and private judging is in your best interest rather than traditional litigation that is more time consuming and costly.

We will advise you on contracts, general liability, insurance, bankruptcy, products liability, franchise cases, and professional licensing. As a former Deputy Attorney General, Samuel Spital has extensive experience and a diverse background in issues relating to all aspects of State government (select the practice area tab entitled Professional Licensing for more details).

We take the uncertainties of litigation involving a contract dispute seriously . We want our clients to be aware that there are risks of financial loss as a result of unsuccessful litigation and, therefore, having to pay their adversary’s attorneys’ fees. To reduce that risk, we can introduce our clients to a policy of insurance they can purchase that is underwritten by a member company of one of the largest insurance companies in the world to protect against this uncertainty in litigation . The policy is for plaintiffs and defendants.

At Spital & Associates, we want to be your Business Litigation Lawyers and advise you how to avoid becoming involved in a lawsuit as a result of a dispute, and/or represent you if you bring or need to defend a lawsuit. Our areas of business litigation expertise include:

  • Contracts
  • Consumer Litigation
  • Product Liability
  • Employment-Related Matters
  • General Business Matters
  • Franchise Disputes
  • Bankruptcy

As your San Diego business litigation attorney, we bring to the table our insightful and sophisticated understanding of our client’s business and plus our ability to execute creative and aggressive responses to the problems you might encounter in your day to day operations.

Our goal is to negotiate resolutions at an early stage in the process. In doing so, we choose negotiation, settlement and/or mediation to keep attorney’s fees at a minimum and to prevent protracted (or seemingly endless) litigation in the Superior Court and appellate courts.

We are as close as your cell phone or desktop to send us and email or call to learn more about the range of business litigation we handle, including: breach of contract, negligence, unfair competition, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, employment law, state business and professional licensing cases, personal and business bankruptcy, and consumer litigation.
