Representative Engagements

  • Co-chaired successful defense of a $100 million proposed class action alleging violation of federal and state price discrimination laws.  Alex played a primary role in the Firm's class certification opposition strategy and related briefing, and defeated the plaintiffs' bid for class certification and subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit.
  • Successfully opposed summary judgment on behalf of a major consumer products company involved in a contract dispute arising from a 20-year-old asset sale.  The case is scheduled for trial in federal court in Los Angeles in early 2018.
  • Counseled a public technology company facing federal and state governmental inquiries.  Alex helped respond to multiple demands for documents and information and is managing the client's interactions with the governmental agencies.  
  • Retained by individuals accused of fraudulently transferring property to avoid a multi-million dollar judgment against a related party.  Alex was hired by the clients after their previous lawyer failed to disclose potential conflicts of interest in representing all of the parties together.
