Representing Bay Area Auto Dealerships

Auto dealerships have unique needs in their dealings with consumers, regulatory agencies, vehicle manufacturers and the state. We represent clients in the purchase and sale of dealerships as well as dealership mergers and acquisitions. Our lawyers are available to provide ongoing legal advice and representation in all areas of day-to-day business operations, from business formation and startup to reviewing and drafting contracts and establishing employee policies and handbooks.

As veteran trial lawyers, we are also well-equipped to work as advocates for car dealerships in formal litigation proceedings. We defend dealers against legal claims brought by consumers, vendors, employees and others. Our goal is to resolve these disputes quickly and cost-effectively, so they do not become a distraction to ongoing business operations. However, if an issue cannot be fairly resolved outside of the courtroom, you can depend on us for aggressive representation at trial.

We provide intelligent defense on behalf of auto dealerships facing legal action under the California Lemon Law and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act. We also represent clients in franchise agreement protests filed with the California New Motor Vehicle Dealer’s Board. If the California Department of Motor Vehicles has taken administrative action or assessed administrative penalties against your dealership, you can rely on us for knowledgeable legal representation.

Finally, we are frequently called on to represent auto dealerships in disputes with their insurance companies over policy coverage issues.
