On August 26, 2019, RLG won a unanimous defense jury verdict in case involving a $2.25 million dispute over the ownership of a cannabis dispensary. (LASC No. BC667048) (Hon. Gregory Alarcon). It was a nine-day trial, plus one day of jury deliberation. The jury found unanimously for RLG’s clients on all seven causes of action. Jurors commented in post-verdict interviews about the persuasiveness of Brandon S. Reif’s arguments, which led to “12-0” jury votes on key defenses, and caused the rest of plaintiffs’ case to collapse on the merits. RLG partners Brandon S. Reif and Marc Ehrlich and paralegal Cian Williams are credited with the win.
RLG Managing Partner Brandon S. Reif attributes the firm’s success to dogged preparation and relentless advocacy. “We master both sides of every case we take to trial. That is who we are and that is why we win.”
