We take on the world’s largest companies and zealously advocate for our clients. Our award-winning team have been recognized for their ground-breaking work on legal issues that have changed the law and resulted significant settlements.

Our recent victory before the California Supreme Court in Troester v. Starbucks Corporation (2018) 5 Cal. 5th 829 (departing from the federal law’s more employer-friendly version of the de minimus rule) was a significant victory for all workers in California. As a result of Troester, millions of hard-working Californians are now entitled to be paid for time spent working even if it is just a couple of minutes. Our firm was also lead counsel in Gilberg v. California Check Cashing, Inc., 913 F. 1169(2019), which expanded the Ninth-Circuit’s holding in Syed v. M-I, LLC, 853 F.3d 492 (2017), and held that any surplusage in a disclosure form prior to obtaining a background check violates the “sole and conspicuous” requirement under the Fair Credit Report Act.
