CIVIL LITIGATION

Gupta Evans and Associates is a full-service business and real estate litigation firm. The Firm’s expertise in bankruptcy law and civil litigation enable the Firm to adeptly navigate clients through various areas of the law in order to find effective, personalized solutions for each client’s particular legal needs. 

Gupta Evans has successfully litigated or reached favorable settlements for individual and entity clients in both federal and state proceedings, as well as alternative dispute resolution proceedings, in an array of matters including: 

  • Partnership and corporate disputes, including breach of fiduciary duty claims and dissolution actions;
  • Shareholder direct and derivative actions;
  • Fraudulent and preferential transfer claims, and other adversary proceedings in bankruptcy court;
  • Commercial collections;
  • Defense and prosecution of guaranty enforcement actions;

Gupta Evans and Associates relies on its expertise in bankruptcy law to uniquely advise clients during the course of any general civil litigation matter.  Specifically, Gupta Evans and Associates can help plaintiffs evaluate the strength of their judgments or potential judgments by analyzing the likelihood that a particular defendant may file for bankruptcy.  This type of analysis helps clients to more accurately quantify the strengths of their case, which in turn helps them to make a more informed decision regarding whether or not to pursue litigation or continue litigation, which is more often than not a costly and time-consuming endeavor.  On the other hand, Gupta Evans and Associates also finds itself advising defendants and judgment debtors as to the possible ramifications of judgments against them. This too helps the firm’s clients analyze their unique situation and allows them to navigate the proper course of action that best suits their particular legal needs.

REAL ESTATE

While Gupta Evans and Associates handles a wide range of general civil litigation matters, the Firm has grown to create a specific focus on real estate disputes.  The firm has significant experience in the representation of a wide-variety of real estate clients, including real estate owners, landlords, tenants, developers, investors, borrowers, lenders and other real estate-affiliated companies.

Gupta Evans and Associates have built up extensive experience litigating various types of real estate matters, including:

  • Lease disputes with respect to commercial and residential landlords and tenants;
  • Commercial and residential eviction proceedings (Unlawful Detainer);
  • Non-disclosure issues associated with the purchase and sale of real property;
  • Boundary/title disputes;
  • Adverse possession;
  • Hard money disputes between borrowers and lenders;
  • Mishandled loan modification cases;
  • General real estate transaction disputes (breach of contract, fraud, negligence)

BANKRUPTCY

Having been involved with over 500 bankruptcies over the last 10 years, Gupta Evans and Associates’ experience with insolvency matters traverses a wide array of situations.  From receiverships and structured dissolutions outside of bankruptcy to taking a corporation through Chapter 11 plan confirmation, the Firm has likely been involved with almost every aspect of bankruptcy at some point in time.

Ajay Gupta, the Firm’s founder, is one of just 13 attorneys in San Diego County that is Certified by the State Bar of California as a Bankruptcy Specialist.  Mr. Gupta’s expertise in bankruptcy law allows the Firm to focus on more complex bankruptcy issues that other firms may not be as well versed in, such as Chapter 11 actions, complex trust and bond related matters, preference and fraudulent transfer adversaries, jurisdictional matters, as well as non-dischargeability issues. 

However, Gupta Evans and Associates also handles a wide array of debtor and creditor matters.  Gupta Evans and Associates has filed over 500 Chapter 7 bankruptcies, as well as a large number of Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings. Gupta Evans and Associates has helped hundreds of San Diegans eliminate debt and achieve a financial fresh start through bankruptcy protection.
