As a boutique firm serving the Greater Los Angeles and Southern California area, we represent an array of clients in complex, high-stakes litigation. Our clients range from Fortune 500 companies to celebrities, recording artists, movie production companies, real estate developers and individuals bringing claims on behalf of tens of thousands of others in complex consumer and employment class actions.
Our firm takes pride in our track record of results at trial, arbitration, appeals and mediation. Regardless of the case, we provide our clients with the legal experience and skill of a large firm, but with the personal attention and creativity only a small firm can offer.
Creative Solutions To Your Toughest Legal Issues
After years spent building successful careers at some of Los Angeles' premier law firms, we decided to pursue our vision of a modern law firm. All of our attorneys come from top tier universities and law schools. Many have clerked for federal or state court judges prior to joining Kawahito Shraga & Westrick LLP.
Our experience encompasses a wide range of substantive areas, including intellectual property — representing plaintiffs and defendants in copyright, trademark and trade secrets matters — class actions — including consumer, false advertising, unfair business practices, employment and organic food mislabeling cases — general contract and commercial litigation, entertainment and real estate litigation.
Our practice is split evenly among plaintiffs and defendants. In many cases, we offer alternative fee arrangements that align our interests with the client. These are tailored to the particular case's merits and risk. We thrive on applying our skill, creativity and experience to a wide spectrum of cases and clients. Clients know when they hire Kawahito Shraga & Westrick LLP they are getting the best of both worlds — the experience and knowledge of a big law firm and the personalized attention and quick action only a small firm can offer.
Los Angeles And Orange County-Based Class-Action Lawyers
One of the areas where Kawahito Shraga & Westrick LLP has obtained special expertise is in its class-action practice. Our attorneys have both defended and prosecuted class actions. Class-action suits can be an effective way to trigger company- or industry-wide policy change. Because unlawful policies or business may only affect individuals by a relatively small amount, class actions are often the only way to effect needed change.
If you or anyone you know has been affected by deceptive business practice, false advertising or unlawful employment policy, contact our consumer and employment lawyers at our Los Angeles office for a free consultation.
Our firm also helps people in the entertainment and media industries protect their rights and ensure they are given the profit participation and royalties they deserve for their creative contributions. We also represent inventors and owners of intellectual properties to ensure infringement, counterfeiting and cybersquatting don't dilute their brands.
