Practice Areas

Business Litigation

Castañeda Trial Attorneys are skilled lawyers that represent businesses of all sizes and types, including executives, entrepreneurs, investors and property owners.  We focus our expertise on state and federal litigation involving the breach of a variety of commercial contracts, misappropriation of trade secrets, and real estate.  We also litigate business-related torts, unfair business practices, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty obligations, securities litigation and partnership disputes.

In these cases, our lawyers have experience in developing a comprehensive strategy, avoiding wasteful duplication of discovery efforts, taking cases to trial, and coordinating with other counsel in joint defense and privilege arrangements.  However, serving our clients doesn’t start or end in the courtroom.  Our attorneys have a reputation for aggressively pursuing our clients’ interests through pre-lawsuit research, investigation and preparation.

White Collar Criminal Defense & Internal Investigations

As white-collar attorneys, we represent companies and executives in white-collar criminal matters.  Led by a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, we respond quickly and effectively to a state or federal subpoena, search warrant, or full-blown government prosecution.

Our work often begins far in advance of a prosecution.  We assist companies, boards of directors, auditors, and legal counsel through systematic internal investigations in assessing internal weaknesses prior to or in anticipation of government litigation or prosecution.  We are experts at conducting bilingual internal investigations throughout the United States, Mexico and Latin America.
