Practice Areas

Civil Litigation

Friedman & Springwater LLP’s Civil Litigation practice encompasses all aspects of commercial, public utility, and general business civil litigation in California state courts and federal courts throughout the United States.

Our lawyers have in-depth experience in litigating every type of dispute that may arise in the debtor-creditor relationship, including the enforcement of creditors’ rights, litigation relating to secured transactions. Our clients benefit from the combination of our litigation experience and our commercial finance and bankruptcy experience, as well as our practical approach to the efficient resolution of disputes. The firm has represented debtors and creditors in bankruptcy cases in complex preferential and fraudulent transfer litigation, plan confirmation litigation, and objections to claims.

In addition, Friedman & Springwater LLP has a sophisticated practice in public utility law, including the energy, water, transportation and telecommunications industries and related environmental issues, including those under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).  We have successfully litigated a broad range of matters relating to these industries in state and federal courts.  Our litigation clients benefit from our experience in the state and federal regulation of these industries, industry custom and practice, and the applicability of special laws and defenses that can impact the litigation outcome.
