Baker Marquart lawyers regularly handle a wide range of complex civil litigation, including disputes relating to contracts, franchises, employment and other subject areas. We have represented Fortune 500 companies such as DirecTV and Rolls-Royce, as well as closely-held companies and individuals. In each case, the firm develops a strategy specific to each client’s needs.
The firm regularly represents clients in state and federal courts across the country. Often Baker Marquart resolves cases with dispositive motions. The firm is also skilled at employing alternative dispute resolution to accomplish client goals. At trial, our lawyers have achieved terrific results. For instance, the firm successfully defended a client against multi-million dollar claims brought by an investment bank over a round of financing that had been raised for the client. After a five-day long arbitration – and after the bank had rejected a substantial settlement offer – we proved that the bank’s claims were wholly without merit. The arbitrator ruled in our client’s favor and ordered the bank to reimburse our client nearly all attorneys’ fees and costs spent during the arbitration. In other cases as well, we have recovered fees and costs as the prevailing parties in litigation, or as monetary sanctions for discovery abuses or violation of California’s anti-SLAPP law.
