Automotive and Equipment Dealerships
Auto and equipment dealerships present unique challenges in litigation, as they are exposed not just to common claims for claims for breach of contract, negligence and products liability, but also more specialized claims such as fraud, misrepresentation, and violations of a host of statutory laws including the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the Song Beverly Act, the Magnuson-Moss Act, and Business & Professions Code section 17200. Chapman Glucksman Dean Roeb & Barger has almost three decades of experience representing auto and equipment dealers in these and numerous others types of claims and causes of action. Such experience enables us to provide effective and cost-efficient legal representation to our clients, with an exemplary track record of successful results via settlement, arbitration or trial.
In addition to the above, we also represent auto and equipment dealers in lawsuits as well as pre-litigation disputes involving employment claims for wrongful termination, sex/gender/racial discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wage & hour disputes.
We aggressively defend our clients through all aspects of the claim, whether pre-litigation or litigation, and focus on early dismissal or settlement of cases. We also defend class action claims against dealerships.
We work closely with our clients to provide counseling and training to the employees in order to prevent claims from becoming lawsuits. Our goal is to ensure that our clients are knowledgeable and comply with the often complex scheme of federal and state consumer laws, to enable them to focus on what they do best: selling and servicing cars, trucks and heavy equipment, instead of spending time defending lawsuits.
