Our emphasis on four core practice areas keeps us steadily focused.

Real Estate

Stuart Kane LLP’s expertise in real estate encompasses everything pertaining to your “places,” from acquisition to zoning. We represent developers, owners, landlords, and tenants in retail, industrial, office, and residential markets. We have vast experience with shopping center development, commercial leasing, home building, medical office and assisted living.

The Employment Group of Stuart Kane LLP provides expert counseling for employers on personnel issues, and defends employers in employment litigation. We guide employers through every stage of the employment process, from hiring to firing, and we assist our clients in developing effective personnel policies and practices. Our employment lawyers are also seasoned litigators.

We also provide expertise in labor law and dealing with unions and the National Labor Relations Board.


Stuart Kane LLP’s Litigation Group handles every type of business dispute, with special expertise in real estate, construction, environmental, and employment litigation. The litigators of Stuart Kane LLP are experienced trial attorneys who have spent their careers litigating and arbitrating in Southern California, including the state and federal courts in the Counties of Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego.

The Stuart Kane LLP litigation attorneys have tried jury and non-jury cases, handled arbitrations, mediations and appeals. We have run cases with big budgets and small budgets, and we are specially situated to assist businesses resolve disputes and achieve their goals, protect and validate their rights, and negotiate reasonable resolutions that can keep our clients focused on their core business.
