California and Southwest

Approximately one-third of the firm’s cases are tried outside of Oregon. Our reputation for providing out-of-state clients with the highest quality legal representation at cost effective “Pacific Northwest” rates is no longer a well-kept secret.

From patent litigation to contract disputes, defamation cases to class actions, we have tried and arbitrated cases throughout California and the Southwest.

For example, our trial lawyers were brought in, one week before a two-week bench trial, to serve as lead counsel in a $65 million contract dispute in Clark County, Nevada Circuit Court. We obtained a full prayer for our client and defeated the defendant’s counterclaims.

In another example, the firm opened a temporary office in Salt Lake City, Utah, staying over the course of a lengthy dispute, to represent a significant client.

U.S. District Court, Nevada
Sports Licensed Division of adidas Group LLC v. Elite Apparel

Represented adidas in Clark County, Nevada District Court in a breach of contract dispute. adidas sued the defendant company for its failure to pay for more than $500,000 worth of merchandise, and sued to collect on a personal guaranty. The defendant counterclaimed for the value of the loss of the business, in the amount of $65,000,000. After a nearly two-week bench trial, the judge ruled in our client’s favor awarding the full prayer, plus attorneys’ fees against both the business and its personal guarantor. The defendant received nothing for its counterclaims.
