Trucking and Transportation

The Theodora Oringher Trucking and Transportation Practice Group, chaired by Drew Hansen, has a consistent track record of successfully representing motor carriers and private fleet operators in a wide variety of business litigation and employment matters.  Our clients include some of the nation’s largest trucking companies as well as regional carriers.  Our litigation practice focuses on defending trucking companies in high-stakes class actions involving allegations of wage and hour violations, employment status misclassification, false advertising and/or violations of California’s Business and Professions Code §17200.  But our client relationships go far beyond providing the best possible defense to a given lawsuit.  Instead, given the rising tide of lawsuits that is currently engulfing much of the trucking industry, we work proactively with our clients to find the high ground and avoid litigation whenever possible.  We do this by keeping our clients informed about emerging developments in the law, and helping them to identify potential legal risks and make any necessary adjustments to minimize those risks.  The Trucking and Transportation Practice Group thereby leverages our legal experience both to optimize our clients’ results in litigation and to give them an ongoing competitive advantage in navigating today’s turbulent and ever-changing legal environment.
