How We Help

At Ames Karanjia, we pride ourselves on our uncompromising advocacy for clients while upholding the highest ethical standards in our practice of the law. We provide candid, straightforward advice and stand by it, even when it’s a hard call. We are cordial and professional with our opponents, and believe in civility and respect for others, even as we fight for our clients’ best interests.

We are experienced trial lawyers with the confidence and skill necessary to defend cases in jury trials, arbitration and administrative proceedings. We act quickly to analyze the facts and law at the heart of any employment dispute, and give our clients thoughtful, straightforward advice so that together, we can develop a strategy that aligns with their business objectives. Sometimes, this means acting aggressively to pursue prompt and economical resolution. If that is not possible or desired, we harness our expertise to develop the evidence and arguments needed to defeat the claims on their merits. We have an excellent record of defeating cases on dispositive motions and class certification proceedings, as well as with taking cases through trial to obtain full defense verdicts.

Our attorneys also provide counseling and transactional services designed to minimize risk and remain compliant with California employment law. We give pragmatic advice on a variety of everyday employment issues, conduct internal audits to identify problem areas, and offer recommendations for improving employment practices and inoculating against risk. We are fortunate to be the trusted business partners of some of California’s finest institutions. Our firm represents employers of all sizes in a variety of industries, including healthcare, life sciences, technology, hospitality and retail.
