  1. Business
    The seasoned litigators at CKB VIENNA LLP work to resolve breach of contract claims and general civil and business disputes across the spectrum of business, labor/employment, consumer, insurance, trademark/copyright, products liability, bankruptcy, transportation, administrative law, and commercial law in the Inland Empire, Orange County and Los Angeles County with a special emphasis on construction and real estate litigation and corporate disputes.

  3. Contracts and agreements
    The contract lies at the heart of every business transaction, and companies encounter them countless times in dealings with customers, employees, contractors, vendors, suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and more. The key to a successful transaction is an enforceable contract that mirrors the understanding of the parties and protects the client's rights in the event of a dispute over its interpretation or enforcement.

  4. Corporate and incorporation
    Choosing the right entity to operate your business is an important decision, with long-term consequences regarding taxation, liability, management and control, and succession and dissolution. Do you form a corporation, a partnership, or a limited liability company? As a corporation, do you elect Subchapter C or Subchapter S? At CKB VIENNA LLP, we take the time to sit down with you and learn your needs and goals so that we can best advise you on your options.

  5. Employment and labor

    13 years

  6. Real estate
    Like construction projects, real estate development deals represent a significant investment in time, money, and energy on the part of the major players involved in the transaction. A dispute at any stage of the project threatens to derail the entire deal. Problems can occur during planning and development, financing, buying, selling, leasing, closing, or foreclosing, requiring resolution through legal channels.
