Walker Stevens Cannom LLP

Commercial Litigation

Disputes are an unfortunate, but common issue for businesses of all sizes – from start-ups to global corporations. New and evolving regulations, increased corporate scrutiny, and litigants attempting to monetize litigations have made commercial disputes even more challenging for businesses to navigate. WSC provides seasoned lawyers with a reputation for implementing effective legal strategies to safeguard your business before a lawsuit is filed, and who can aggressively defend your interests in the courtroom when necessary.

WSC represents companies ranging in size from startups to Fortune 500 companies and global corporations in the technology, finance, entertainment, art, fashion, retail, lifestyle, and fitness industries. Our attorneys are adept at handling all phases of litigation, including trials, appeals, regulatory, and alternative dispute resolution proceedings. We regularly use both our extensive litigation experience and our substantive intellectual property knowledge to offer clients the best legal strategy to handle matters involving:

·       Contract disputes

·       Patent, trademark, and copyright infringement claims

·       Trade secret issues

·       Unfair competition and business practices

·       Antitrust allegations

·       False advertising

·       Data privacy

·       Business torts

We advise clients from the onset of a dispute or potential dispute, before a lawsuit is even filed, through resolution, trial, or appeal. Whether you’re filing a lawsuit or responding to a demand or complaint, our attorneys offer discerning advice, assess risk, and lay out astute and cost-effective options for resolution. Such options may include litigation avoidance or pre-suit resolution, or an aggressive litigation strategy when necessary.

In addition to our litigation practice, WSC represents corporate clients and individuals who have been served with third-party subpoenas, including subpoenas in California state court, federal district court, the ITC, and other regulatory agencies. Because of our expertise and efficiency, large firms often request that WSC represent clients and related parties in conflict depositions and to serve and administer third party conflict subpoenas.
