Eric focused on a variety of corporate and business litigation issues, many dealing with corporate matters.

Eric also authored the Appellate Reply brief, as well as the subsequent Answer to Petition for Rehearing and Answer to Petition for Review to the California Supreme Court, all of which were submitted without substantial editing, in Mt. Holyoke Homes, L.P. v. Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell, LLP (2013) 219 Cal. App. 4th 1299, where, in a published opinion, the Second District Court of Appeals of California reversed the trial court and vacated an arbitration award of almost half a million dollars. Both petitions were successfully denied.
