The firm spent approximately 10 years as the go-to defense firm for a major LA full service law firm. Our work included:
- defending malpractice claims
- collecting large receivables
- handling employment disputes
During our representation, our client was never held to be negligent and paid out not one cent to an employee. Our results included:
- Summary judgment with a substantial fee award in a malpractice action (upheld on appeal);
- Summary judgment in an employment case upheld in an appeal that established the after acquired evidence rule in California.
- A defense judgment in arbitration followed by the imposition of a fee award by the Orange County Superior Court upon confirmation of the award;
- A defense judgement in a complex tax malpractice claim in arbitration;
- a settlement with a Hollywood producer following a successful arbitration.
Bob Baker has also occasionally served as an expert witness defending attorneys on issues relating to the standard of care.
