Business Litigation

Partner Paul Jacobs has 35 years of litigation experience representing large and small clients, from IBM and Carl’s Jr. to local family owned businesses. He has won million dollar judgments on the plaintiffs’ side and prevented million dollar judgments by representing defendants who never should have been sued in the first place.

Business disputes erupt every day for a myriad of reasons. At Jacobs & Dodds our focus and our goal is to resolve the disputes in the shortest time possible and in the most economical fashion. Informal dispute resolution is utilized whenever possible. Sadly, however, some disputes can only be settled in the courtroom.

Unfair Competition

An employee leaves the company and takes the customer list with him. A former employee opens up a competing business and undercuts his former employer’s prices to gain an economic advantage. An employee convinces several of her co-employees, while she is still employed with the company, to come to work for her as soon as she leaves the company and and starts up a competing company. Sound familiar? At Jacobs & Dodds we work to protect our business clients from these and other predatory unfair competition practices. We take swift decisive action, including immediate injunctive relief, to protect our clients’ interests.
