David Prager is a partner in the Los Angeles office. He represents clients in high-stakes disputes involving unfair competition, non-compete, trade secrets, discrimination, and harassment, as well as resolving complex commercial litigation matters.
I regularly represent employers across a variety of industries including financial services, healthcare, retail, and technology in litigation matters across state and federal courts. I have extensive experience successfully representing and defending clients during all phases of litigated matters.
My practice encompasses employment discrimination litigation, defending unfair competition and contesting whistleblower claims—all on behalf of employers. I have a long track record of success in representing clients by trying cases to judgment or achieving resolutions on very favorable terms. My goal is to protect clients by resolving disputes efficiently and delivering cost-effective defense strategies aligned with overall business objectives.
In addition, I counsel clients on other matters involving employee hiring, discipline, termination, accommodation, leaves of absence, and wage and hour compliance.
I have extensive experience in complex business and commercial litigation, working with large and mid-size companies to resolve disputes. I understand my client’s business and their objectives, which allows me to become a trusted advisor and informed advocate for them.
The below representative experience includes representations from prior firms.
