Loeb & Loeb’s Litigation Practice defends and prosecutes high-stakes cases in jurisdictions across the country. Our trial attorneys represent clients before judges and juries at every level of the federal and state court systems, as well as in mediation, arbitration and regulatory agency proceedings. Our clients, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to individuals, trust us to deliver high-quality litigation counsel with a consistent focus on their business objectives and a steady determination to add value to each and every matter.
Our litigators prepare every case as if trial is inevitable – an approach that results from our deep experience in conducting hundreds of trials and arbitrations. This perspective allows us to focus on the core facts, the witnesses and documents necessary to put those facts into evidence, and the law on which the case will be decided. Our experience has shown this to be not only the best way to present a formidable case in the courtroom, but also the best way to reach a favorable pretrial settlement or summary disposition.
In addition to representing our clients in complex commercial contract disputes, our litigation experience extends to the following core disciplines:
Bankruptcy, Restructuring and Creditors’ Rights
We represent creditors, debtors, financial institutions, committees, trustees, and buyers and sellers of assets in bankruptcy and insolvency-related litigation, including pursuing and defending collection and recovery motions, and establishing and enforcing receiverships.

We defend government enforcement actions, regulatory investigations and private class action lawsuits that allege violations of consumer protection and unfair competition laws.
Employment and Labor
We defend clients in a range of employment matters, including those involving allegations of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and wage and hour violations.

At Loeb & Loeb, our commitment to fostering and maintaining a diverse workforce is as important as our commitment to every client, case and transaction. Our inclusive environment and consideration of varied perspectives are essential to creating the best solutions for our clients, and integral elements of our success. It’s just another way: Loeb& Loeb adds Value.
Driving our diversity initiatives are the attorneys and staff who serve on our Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Committee. The mission of the Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Committee is to advance diversity awareness within the firm, establish firm-wide policies and initiatives that support our commitment to maintaining a diverse workforce; foster understanding, communication and respect; and promote an inclusive workplace environment that utilizes the talents of attorneys and staff of all race, color, national origin, ethnic and cultural background, religion, sex, age, medical condition or disability, citizenship, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation or preference and marital, veteran or family status. At Loeb & Loeb we believe drawing on the talents of a diverse pool of attorneys and staff creates a workplace environment that allows us to attract and retain a diverse workforce and to serve our clients more effectively and creatively as a result.
Recruiting and Retention
The Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Committee assists and monitors Loeb & Loeb’s ongoing efforts to promote and achieve its diversity goals, especially the goal of meaningfully increasing the representation and retention of women and minority lawyers at all levels of the firm. The committee advises firm management regarding procedures for enhancing the recruitment, retention and promotion of diverse attorneys, and provides input on ways to integrate diversity goals into everyday decision-making, policies and management practices.
Loeb & Loeb attorneys and staff members are active in four affinity groups: Attorneys of Color, LGBT, Women and Parents. These groups provide a voluntary support network designed to create a more inclusive culture, enrich the work environment, and identify solutions and strategies that help the firm recruit, develop, advance and retain talented attorneys. Through thoughtful discussion of topical issues and identification of best practices, our affinity group members are able to drive meaningful change and promote a culture of collaboration and positive action.
Encouraging the professional growth and development of our attorneys is an important focus at Loeb & Loeb. It is key to the success of our attorneys, our firm and our service to clients. Our mentor program provides associates with the structure and framework needed to build skill sets and develop valuable professional connections. Through both informal and formal mentoring, senior lawyers share their experience, knowledge and insight to help guide associates on the path to become future firm leaders.
Our commitment to diversity is enhanced by our active involvement as members and sponsors of several organizations that support and reflect our diverse society, such as the California Minority Counsel Program and Lambda Legal. We also participate in programs that promote diversity in the legal profession, including the recently expanded Judicial Intern Opportunity Program from which the ABA Section of Litigation places law students of color and those from disadvantaged backgrounds into judicial internships.
In addition, we are a signatory of the Diversity Statement and Policies promulgated by the New York City and Los Angeles County Bar Associations. Both of these initiatives call upon law firms to hire diverse incoming classes and to maintain this diversity as associates rise in seniority and are considered for partnership.
DIVERSITY ADDS VALUE!
