Often, the cases I handle are ones that other attorneys don’t want or when the client needs extra help getting over the finish line. One company called me 30 days before trial, asking me to parachute in to help sort out complex medical and toxic exposure issues on a potentially significant property claim. I stepped in, took expert depositions, filed the appropriate motions, and handled experts along with co-counsel in trial. The tighter the window, the more challenging the case, the more focused I get.
Kere Tickner handles a wide range of complex civil litigation with a primary focus on general litigation and employment matters. She also works on business disputes, homeowners association (HOA) and landlord/tenant issues, environmental and toxic tort claims, construction defects, and other litigation for large corporations, regional ventures, and small business owners.
In her general litigation practice, Kere advises on matters ranging from HOA litigation, property management, landlord/tenant, habitability, personal injury, toxic exposure, trucking, and commercial vehicle accidents. While she handles claims of all varieties, when cases cross Kere’s desk, there is usually significant potential exposure.
Kere also has a broad-based labor and employment practice spanning counsel as well as litigation. She helps employers resolve disputes and defends them before the California Civil Rights Department (DFEH), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and Labor Board hearings. She also represents individuals and employees on wage and hour issues, wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and disability accommodation claims, and others in state and federal court and through arbitration. She counsels businesses of all sizes on employee policies, handbooks, accommodations, discipline, and termination, and provides training on California’s mandatory supervisor harassment training program.
Clients look to Kere for solutions to seemingly unresolvable disputes, from complex multi-million-dollar lawsuits to class actions to ‘bet-the-company’ litigation and everything in between. They know she will quickly evaluate claims, provide practical and clear-headed guidance, and reach a favorable resolution even in the most challenging situations. When litigation becomes inevitable, Kere is committed to preserving her clients’ interests, whether in the courtroom or through mediation or arbitration.
