All The O'Brien Law Firm Does is Litigation - Focusing Exclusively on Fraud, Breach of Contract, Partnership & Shareholder Disputes, and Other Select Business Lawsuits
Like most San Diego people and businesses, you enter into business deals and other consumer transactions to benefit from a win-win situation. Contracts and business deals are the backbone of business.
But, what happens when things go wrong? Our business litigators fight for businesses and individuals, as both plaintiffs and defendants, and aggressively pursue their rights in court.
Our boutique business litigation firm takes your case personally, our attorneys are available 24/7, and we develop bonds over and above an attorney-client relationship. We do this in the following types of cases:
There is a lot of "he said / she said" when business dealings go awry. When things do not go as planned, it is often because a party falsified or omitted facts back when the deal originated, especially with start-up businesses needing capital and investors. Of course, sometimes the accusations are without merit.
We aggressively prosecute and defend claims based on:
- Lying or Omitting Facts when Negotiating a Contract
- Misleading or False Statements about the History or Success of a Business
- Investment Fraud
- Real Estate Fraud
- Fraudulent Advertising and Marketing
- Pyramid & Ponzi Schemes
An important thing to remember is that just one single misrepresentation or concealment can support a fraud lawsuit. So, even if everything else was true or disclosed, there is potential fraud liability.
The moment that you suspect a problem is the time to enlist the help of a fraud lawyer. The more you wait, the greater the chance of lost evidence, money moving hands, and fading memories – all which can hurt a potentially meritorious lawsuit. If you have been sued for fraud, it is definitely time to call an attorney.
People and businesses breach contracts for a variety of reasons. Often times, the reason is simple: someone doesn't like the deal anymore or feel like paying. Other times, it is much more complicated, such as when both parties accuse each other of breach, or unexpected events make performing the contract more difficult. Of course, there are defenses to breaching an agreement and not every dispute qualifies as a breach.
Our business attorneys aggressively prosecute and defend businesses and individuals in many contract disputes, such as:
- Breach of Promissory Notes
- Breach of Stock Purchase / Investment Agreements
- Breach of Real Estate Purchase Contracts and Listing Agreements
- Breach of Consulting Agreements
- Breach of License Agreements
- Breach of Nondisclosure Agreements
- Breach of Settlement Agreements
- Breach of HOA Bylaws and CC&Rs
- Breach of Lease Agreements
- Breach of Boat Purchase Agreements
- Breach of Marvin Agreements
Keep in mind that contracts may be written, oral, or even implied by conduct. However, cotract not in writing have shorter statutes of limitation. The moment you suspect a breach (or are sued for breach of contract) is the time to call an attorney.
Corporations and the shareholders (and partnerships and the partners) often run into conflict. Many players have invested time and money into a company, there are often contrasting visions, and - sometimes - there are just bad apples.
If your time and money are in jeopardy because of the officers, directors, majority shareholders, or partners in your business, it may be time to contact an attorney to protect your rights (and money). If you have been sued, it is most certainly time to contact a business litigator for a vigorous defense.

- Disloyalty & Mismanagement by Officers, Directors, and Partners
