Construction Law

Adler Law has frequently assisted with the following legal challenges during residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure construction projects.

  • Construction Defects: When there are defects in the construction of your new home or building, your investment can be jeopardized. If the contractor won’t repair the damage or your insurance company shies away from covering losses, we can help.
  • Construction Contracts: We can assist you with reviewing, drafting, and negotiating a construction contract. When we create an agreement for you, it will contain terms and conditions that help you realize the greatest possible profit while protecting you against liability.
  • Mechanic’s Liens: When a contractor, subcontractor, or supplier has provided work for a project but has not been paid, Adler Law can assist in filing a mechanic’s lien that secures their right to compensation.
  • Stop Payment Notices: A stop payment notice establishes a lien on undisbursed funds held by a project owner or lender. It can ensure that contractors and others get paid in situations where mechanic’s liens are not feasible, such as a public works project.
Real Estate

If you are buying, selling, or leasing property in or around Calabasas, you can turn to Adler Law with confidence. We are in tune with the local real estate market and the conflicts that can arise during transactions, and can provide the following legal services:

  • Quiet Title: Quiet title disputes arise when property or land ownership is in doubt. There may have been an improper real estate transaction, unrecorded easement, or old mortgage. Adler Law can initiate a quiet title action that removes opposing claims or challenges, leaving you with a clean title.
  • Partition Actions: If you own a property with other parties and everyone cannot agree on what to do with it, you may bring a partition action before the court. We will advocate for your desired outcome when the court divides each owner’s interest in the property.
  • Broker Disputes: Broker disputes can be caused by a variety of issues, such as contractual disagreements and nonpayment of brokerage fees. No matter what the situation, Adler Law can provide the counsel and advice needed to resolve the matter.
  • Real Estate Litigation: Property is a substantial investment, so protecting it is important. We handle all types of real estate disputes, including boundary issues, contract challenges, and  commercial leasing disagreements.
  • Property Purchase and Sale Agreements: In property transactions, both buyer and seller need to protect their interests and rights. We limit your risk by ensuring that your purchase or sale agreement is correctly drafted.
  • Agent Disputes: Real estate agents are expected to follow standard industry practices as well as regulatory and statutory requirements. When they fail to do so, we can help you seek appropriate damages.

  • Homeowners Association (HOA)/CC&R Disputes: The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&R) is a key document for every Homeowners Association. When an HOA makes decisions that impact or harm your property, Adler Law will be your voice in the ensuing dispute.

Business Litigation

Our business litigation practice encompasses a wide array of commercial disputes. We can handle most litigation cases arising under general principles of California business and contract law. If you need assistance in any of the following situations, call Adler Law today.

  • Corporate Formation: Selecting the right business entity can give you peace of mind by minimizing your personal exposure to risk. We will help you form a C-corporation or S-corporation and guide you through the process of registering the business and remaining legally compliant with California regulations.
  • Limited Liability Company Formation: If you want to protect the company and your personal assets but don’t intend to go public or seek outside investment, an LLC could be the best option for you. We will assist you in filing all required documents with the California Secretary of State and advise you on maintaining compliance.
  • Corporate and Limited Liability Company Disputes: Corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs) both have the potential for an internal dispute that could compromise the company’s success. Adler Law will represent your interests as you and the other members work towards resolution.
  • Partnership Disputes: Disputes within a partnership can potentially disrupt the business and have a long-term effect on its reputation. Adler Law will work with you to resolve your dispute as efficiently and fairly as possible.
Mediation

Alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation are being embraced as a private, informal, and cost-effective means of resolving a legal dispute. It also preserves valuable working relationships because both sides are allowed to craft a solution in a confidential setting.

Adler Law is pleased to offer effective and experienced mediation services for your civil disagreement. We will ask questions that inspire serious thought and help you and the other party draft a mutually acceptable agreement, all while maintaining a neutral position.

Personal Injury

We protect the rights of those who have been seriously injured by the wrongful or negligent actions of another person or entity. Cases we handle include California slips and falls, dog bites, motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian injuries, and wrongful death claims. Let us advocate for you at the negotiation table or in the courtroom, so that you get the compensation you need to recover.

No matter what your legal matter may be, you can count on us for informed guidance, experienced legal counsel, and dedicated attention to your case. To schedule a consultation, please contact Adler Law.
