Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

Clients rely on Robert Feyder for commercial and business litigation matters for both his litigation skills and his practical knowledge of their business goals and concerns.

For more than 30 years, Robert has handled complex disputes on behalf of a variety of institutional clients at both the trial and appellate levels in state and federal court and before arbitration tribunals and administrative boards, including actions and putative class actions involving motor vehicle franchise law, health care law, fraud, breach of contract, antitrust and unfair competition, privacy, lender liability, creditor's rights, and securities fraud.

For clients in the heavily regulated automotive industry, Robert brings an informed perspective in matters involving motor vehicle franchise law and other issues that impact automobile manufacturers and other sector stakeholders. Robert has defended motor vehicle manufacturers in state and federal courts, before state motor vehicle boards, and in arbitration proceedings in matters brought by dealers and prospective dealers involving asset purchase agreements, dealer terminations, warranty reimbursement issues, and export policies. In addition, Robert regularly advises motor vehicle manufacturers on state motor vehicle franchise law issues, including incentive programs, warranty reimbursement issues, dealer terminations, post-termination obligations, buy/sell transactions, relevant market areas, signage, relocations, facility upgrades, and export policies. He also negotiates and drafts various agreements for motor vehicle manufacturers, including addenda to dealer agreements, facility agreements, performance agreements, no-protest agreements, right of first opportunity agreements, and termination agreements.

Robert also represents health insurers and self-insured entities in health care coverage and payment disputes brought by medical providers.

Robert has argued cases before the California Courts of Appeal, the Ninth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Previously, Robert led the litigation practice in the Los Angeles office of another international law firm.
