General Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

Our litigation practice includes business and contract disputes, employment law, and real estate and construction litigation. Our administrative law and education law practices often raise issues of constitutional law.

Robert D. "Bo" Links has over thirty years of civil litigation experience covering jury trials, appellate work and alternative dispute resolution through mediation and arbitration. Adam G. Slote has 20 years of litigation experience including jury trials, administrative hearings and appeals. Our work is not limited to traditional litigation in the courtroom, but also includes extensive experience in arbitration and mediation that spans a wide range of legal issues.

Labor & Employment Proceedings

Mr. Links brings employment law expertise to our litigation practice. We have represented both employers and employees, and we bring a reasoned, practical approach to the issues we face. Our work includes prosecution and defense of discrimination and harassment cases; counseling and training regarding discrimination laws and regulations; negotiation of settlements in disputed cases; and trying cases before courts, arbitrators and administrative tribunals.

Our practice includes appearances before various agencies, including the California Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board (UIAB), the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB), the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Construction Litigation

Mr. Links also brings construction litigation expertise to our practice. We have represented owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, surveyors and others involved in the building trades and professions. Our cases have focused on a variety of structures and projects – everything from single family residences to complex condominium projects and high-rise office buildings. We have achieved substantial success for our clients and have done so in an efficient and cost effective manner.
