Practice Areas Overview
Quality Legal Representation in the San Francisco Bay Area
At the Law Offices of David R. Lipson, we focus intensely on a few key areas of legal practice. By doing so we are able to continually develop our expertise in these areas and stay current on changes in the law. Our goal is to provide you with high quality legal representation in the most cost-effective manner possible.
We are dedicated to personal service. As a small firm, we are able to be selective in the cases we take. We keep our volume low, ensuring your case or transaction will be handled with care. As our client, you will receive our full attention, ingenuity and effort. Contact our San Francisco law offices to discuss how we can assist you.
A History of Legal Excellence
In thirty-eight years of practice, David R. Lipson has earned a reputation as a skilled trial lawyer and transactional counselor. Whether resolving a dispute through litigation or negotiating a business contract, you can rely on his experience, practical understanding, integrity, and high ethical standards.
By building strong, trusting relationships with our clients, we are often able to prevent future legal issues from arising. We have represented many of our clients for years, and they frequently refer others to our practice.
California Employment Law
We represent both employees and businesses concerning employment law issues. Our practice includes discrimination claims, retaliation and whistleblower cases, sexual harassment, negotiation of separation agreements, unfair competition claims, and compliance counseling. With experience in representing both employees and employers, we can anticipate the strategies likely to be used by the opposing party.
Reviewing and Drafting Business Contracts
Business contracts have little real value unless they are thorough, well-grounded in legal principles, and enforceable. To protect the interests of your company, we work with you to review your existing contracts with clients, vendors, and distributors, and make any necessary revisions. We also negotiate and draft from inception purchase and sale agreements, agency and consulting agreements, executive employment agreements, and commercial leases.
Business and Commercial Litigation
Being embroiled in a dispute is bad for business. Not only is it time consuming and costly, but it can seriously impact your reputation and business good will. We seek to resolve disputes as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible.
Whether your case involves breach of contract, a real estate problem, other business issues, or insurance bad faith, we are prepared to help you reach a solution through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, or litigation.
