Reif Law Group, P.C.

About Us
Core Values

RLG follows four core values in the handling of the business relationship with our clients.

COURAGE. We are fearless advocates for our clients and provide unmatched representation against the largest and best funded adversaries and law firms in the country. RLG believes in going to trial or arbitration when settlement negotiations have been exhausted. Our “go to trial” philosophy has resulted in favorable settlements after trial or arbitration and winning the “unwinnable” cases at trial and arbitration. We do not pressure clients to “panic settle” or “fire sell” their cases for fear of going to trial or arbitration.

AUTHENTICITY. We act and speak with integrity with our clients. We take the time to discuss the material risks and we tell clients the truth about their case rather than what the clients might want to hear.

Core Values

OPPORTUNITY. We take great pride in seizing the opportunity to pursue the best possible results for our clients and believe that creating and maintaining momentum throughout the life of the case takes paramount importance. Many times, the best outcome is a settlement, and we provide unmatched tactical and strategic advice to create opportunities to achieve the best possible results.

PASSION. We have earned prestigious awards and accolades from peers, clients and esteemed judges. Clients hire RLG because we represent our clients with passion and conviction and love practicing law. Most importantly, we rebound from case setbacks and seize the day with positive developments.

Our core values and proven history of success set us apart from the competition. RLG is regularly hired to handle “high stakes” and “bet the company” litigation involving tens of millions of dollars in damages.

Aggressive Securities and Corporate Law Attorneys

From day one, our practice has been dedicated to zealously representing clients facing high-stakes challenges in court, arbitration, securities litigation, and employment law disputes. Applying skill, creativity, diligence and rigorous legal analysis, we set out to provide highly specialized and personalized service to our clients. Our focus on representing individuals who have been victimized in the securities and employment area gives us an advantage over law firms that offer generalized legal services. 

We leverage our well-honed knowledge and experience in these fields. Our reputation for standing up to Wall Street and major corporations, to ensure that our clients obtain the financial compensation they are entitled to under the law. We are highly experienced in cases involving:

  • Securities litigation and arbitration
  • Business disruption
  • Professional liability
  • Corporate and shareholder disputes
  • Employment disputes/discrimination
  • Insurance coverage disputes

While disputes can often be resolved through negotiated settlements, we prepare each case for trial to give us a strategic advantage at the bargaining table. Our trial-ready preparedness allows us to achieve positive outcomes in and out of the courtroom. When you become our client, we will help you navigate the process and always work to protect your interests.

The Reif Law Group

Our aggressive securities and corporate law attorneys have a well-earned reputation as dedicated advocates who fight to protect our clients. Our approach is to maximize results at the earliest stage of a dispute through negotiation and alternative forms of dispute resolution such as arbitration, but we are fully prepared to litigate any matter. Managing partner Brandon S. Reif is a Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent™ peer-rated, an AV Preeminent™ – Judicial Edition rated, and a Client Champion Platinum™ client-rated attorney. He has been voted one of Los Angeles Magazine’s “Top Attorneys in Southern California” in 2011 to 2021 and Southern California’s Super Lawyer® in 2011 to 2021 (elevated from Rising Stars® in 2015). He is among “America’s Most Honored Professionals – Top 1%” in 2016 to 2021. These acknowledgments are a testament to his dedication to the law and steadfast adherence to the highest ethical standards.

Proven Strategies That
Deliver Results

At Reif Law Group, we combine the sophisticated advice of a large law firm with the personal service of a niche practice. While we work to achieve positive outcomes before trial or arbitration through strategic settlement negotiations, we have developed proven strategies that deliver results. Our aggressive securities and corporate law team has a track record of achieving multi-million dollar verdicts representing plaintiffs/claimants and complete defense verdicts representing defendants/respondents. When you partner with us, we will work closely with you to define what constitutes a “win” and work strategically to achieve your objectives. While no two business disputes are the same, we have a proven history of delivering favorable trial verdicts and arbitration awards.
