Scali Rasmussen Founder and Managing Shareholder Christian Scali has been recognized as a ‘Visionary’ in Business of Law: Trends, Updates & Visionaries, a special feature published this week by L.A. Times B2B Publishing. Attorneys were recognized as visionaries “for their contributions and leadership within their organizations, the legal field, and the community at large,” the feature says.
“This recognition is a testament to Chris’ unwavering commitment to our clients and to the legal profession,” said firm Shareholder Halbert (Bert) Rasmussen. “It is an honor that one of our own be included among these exceptional lawyers.”
With over two decades in practice, Scali has a “diverse automotive industry practice that includes advice and counsel and complex and high stakes litigation, involving franchise disputes, lender liability, reinsurance and flooring disputes, consumer finance, consumer and wage and hour class actions, high stakes employment litigation, trade secret misappropriation and corporate shareholder and partnership disputes,” the publications says.
“Scali is known throughout the state of California for his work on behalf of the retail automotive industry in a series of advertising lawsuits brought against it under California’s Unfair Competition Law resulting, among other things, in the disbarment of consumer advocates Trevor Law Group and also for his work on the Defense Steering Committee in the massive automobile consumer leasing lawsuit against the entire California retail automotive leasing industry,” the feature adds. Scali’s experience includes complex and high stakes litigation, including franchise disputes, lender liability, reinsurance and flooring disputes, consumer and wage and hour class action defense, executive compensation litigation, trade secret misappropriation and corporate shareholder and partnership disputes.
