Stubbs Alderton & Markiles, LLP, Southern California’s leading business law firm, has announced that litigator Joshua Stambaugh has joined the firm as a Business Litigation partner in its Sherman Oaks office. The addition of Mr. Stambaugh continues to bolster the growth of the Business Litigation practice, bringing the group to 8 seasoned attorneys.

Joshua has extensive experience assisting businesses of all sizes, from Fortune 500 companies to internet start-ups, in virtually every area of commercial litigation, including: business litigation; interference claims; breach of contract; antitrust; unfair competition; misappropriation of trade secrets; fraudulent advertising; and class actions brought pursuant to consumer protection statutes. He has been ranked every year since 2009 as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers.

He has a proven track record of aggressively litigating matters of all sizes and finding sensible solutions for companies that are based upon both immediate and long term business needs. Joshua is particularly adept at handling discrete business disputes with the same vigor and efficiency of larger bet-the-company litigations, and within appropriate budgetary confines. He has extensive trial experience, and is able to handle commercial litigation matters at every stage of litigation, from pleading motions through oral argument on appeal.

Michael A. Sherman, the chair of the Firm’s Business Litigation group said: “Joshua is a first chair trial lawyer with proven courtroom capabilities. We are delighted to have been able to attract such a star to our team, further demonstrating the Firm’s commitment to growing our litigation practice.”
